About firmware

Please tell me.

I got rootfile system for Beagleboard-xM by rootstock.
Kernel was from rcn-ee.net.

Next I got source code of kernel and compiled.
patch file and config file were from rcn-ee.net too.

make configfile.
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- menuconfig
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- uImage
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- mdules
make INSTALE_MOD_PATH=./module modules_install

I got firmware nad modules in ./modules/lib/3.2.0-xx/.

But There are only a few files in firmware dirctory.

How can I get firmware’s files that I wish ?

Look at the “linux-firmware” git repo on kernel.org

Thanks for your ofen kindness.
Sorry for the late reply.

I’ve run the following command:
git clone http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git firmware

I get the necessary files.
However, the following results, resulted in an error.
make ARCH = arm CROSS_COMPILE = arm-linux-gnueabi-uImage.
arm-linux-gnueabi-ld: cannot find firmware / built-in.o: No such file or directory.

obtained in git, Makefile does not seem to be written almost nothing.

I do something wrong ?

You should expand on what your trying to actually do, otherwise we are
just guessing..


There are a description in Makefile in the original firmware directory.

Without this, built-in.o won’t be created when it’s empty, and the

final vmlinux link will fail.

obj-n := dummy

So When I add obj-n := dummy , I can avoid an error.

And I seems to have been mistataken about the firmware.
So I do not need to compile the firmware.

But it does not matter whether the arcitecture.
Sorry for lack of my knowledge.
