Regarding the exynos kernel srpm, i am working on that as time
Still not sure how to handle the install of the kernel from the rpm. I guess for now let
the user manually sign & pack with vboot-utils. The location of the chromium boot
partition is unpredictable. Maybe setup a file in /etc/sysconfig/ with parameters.
The approach suggested at FUDcon2013 in Lawrence was have a version of uboot signed with
vboot-utils and use that to boot up the actual kernel. uboot doesn't change nearly as
fast as the kernel do and this will make the install process more like the other arm
installations for the kernel.
Vboot-utils should be accepted soon once my sponsor reviews the package BZ.
I am looking forward to an official version of vboot-utils.
Agree with ain't broke don't fix. :-P
Yes, a finite amount of time and an infinite queue of things to do. Some things get
pushed to the back of the queue. :)

There have been a number of corrections and improvements in the git repo kernel, but
the earlier comment was kind of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
It takes a little while to set things up and build the kernel and install it. Daryl, if
you need help to set it up I can help you.

I wished that we had a srpm setup for the chromebook git kernel, then could point
people at the koji build. However, need to have the uboot built for chromebook also need
