Description Christopher Blizzard 2006-08-03 23:01:41 EDT
Need to build out our olpc-kernel package for the hardware.  David Woodhouse has
a config file for the hardware here:


That's apparently the _difference_ between the i686 config and OLPC.  There's
apparently a script in the kernel CVS that will build the config.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-08-08 14:48:33 EDT
Needs to be a set of overrides for the configs/ dir rather than a standalone
config file.

There's a number of oddities in the diff between 686 & OLPC that should fall out
if it's done this way, so I've not done a complete review of the changes.
Comment 3 Christopher Blizzard 2006-08-08 15:08:41 EDT
dwmw2 told me that that is what that file does - override the basic i686 config.
 Not sure if you were expecting a different format or something.
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2006-08-09 04:47:45 EDT
No, I think I said (or certainly I _meant_ to say) that the scripts in the
kernel CVS directory are useful for making such 'config overrides' and that we
should so do instead of just using the raw file above.

This is done, Marcelo has owned it.
