For the past couple of weeks a "yum update" on a Pidora 2014 install
fails because libtool should be updated, but it depends on gcc-4.8.3-1
which is not in the update repos. I thought this was just an alignment
problem when it first happened, but as it hasn't been resolved now, I
guess something is really wrong. Does anyone know what is going on?
I have buy a IFC6410 board to do some linux hacking.
I would like to run an up-to-date fedora on it in desktop mode.
For now I have a fedora 20 installed on a sdcard with freedreno.
But to boot it I launch a prebuild kernel from Linaro, it's a 3.4.x kernel.
I like to run an up-to-date kernel, If I can, perraps it's not possible.
I have try to build kernel and create boot img for fastboot, but it's don't
work on my ifc6410.
The step I do :
1. checkout on git the last stable kernel (3.16.1)
2. do kernel config : make ARCH=arm qcom_defconfig (I'm not sure if I
need to use qcom or msm defconfig).
3. build kernel zImage and dtb with : make ARCH=arm
CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-eabi- scripts qcom-apq8064-ifc6410.dtb zImage
4. Add qcom-apq8064-ifc6410.dtb to zImage : cat arch/arm/boot/zImage
arch/arm/boot/dts/qcom-apq8064-ifc6410.dtb > zImage-ifc6410
5. Extract bootimg.cfg and initrd.img from rob prebuild kernel (from
6. Update bootimg.cfg cmd to replace ttyHSL0 with ttyMSM0. (
7. Create boot img for fastboot with cmd : abootimg --create
boot-ifc6410.img -f bootimg.cfg -k zImage-ifc6410 -r initrd.img
The bootimg.cfg and initrd.img come from rob prebuild kernel (from
8. Try to start boot img on the board with : sudo fastboot boot
And with this I have the following output on the serial console :
 fastboot: download:01600000
 fastboot: boot
 Power on reason 32
 cmdline: loglevel=10 msm.hang_debug=n
earlyprintk=serial,ttyMSM0,115200,n8 console=ttyMSM0,115200,n8 console=tty0
root=/dev/mmcblk1p3 rootwait plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles rhgb
androidboot.baseband=apq booting linux @ 0x80208000, ramdisk @
 Turn off LVDS PANEL.
And nothing more, while when I use prebuild boot img from rob or linaro, I
have normal kernel output after.
Is there is something I did wrong, or I need to do in addition ?
In kernel_config_ifc6410 from linaro there as option :
*CONFIG_PHYS_OFFSET=0x80200000.*Is this option as something to do with the
bootimg.cfg kerneladdr option ?
Because this option is not in my kernel build configuration.
PS: I'm not sure if I'm on the right mailing list, peraps send this on the
linux-arm and linux-arm-kernel mailing list would be more appropriate.
