BBB kernel update


How to update the kernel on BBB debian?

debian@beaglebone:~$ uname -a
Linux beaglebone 3.8.13-bone50 #1 SMP Tue May 13 13:24:52 UTC 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux
debian@beaglebone:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.14.19-ti-r27

cat /etc/dogtag


debian@beaglebone:~$ cat /etc/dogtag BeagleBone Debian Image 2014-05-14

That's pre-repo..


cd /opt/scripts/tools/
git pull
sudo ./ --ti-kernel
sudo reboot

This will install: (--ti-kernel switches to the ti channel)



Thanks Robert, but it didn’t work

/boot/vmlinuz-3.14.19-ti-r30' -> /boot/uboot/zImage’
/boot/initrd.img-3.14.19-ti-r30' -> /boot/uboot/initrd.img’
cp: writing /boot/uboot/initrd.img': No space left on device **cp: failed to extend /boot/uboot/initrd.img’: No space left on device**

Ran out of space in the "boot" partition, you can either clean up some
of the extra stuff under /boot/uboot/

Or just reflash the latest..

One of the big improvements, we moved the kernel files into the ext4
partition so the above never happens..


OK, I did it, but where is uEnv.txt?

before I was able to do that:

in /mnt/emmcfat edit uEnv.txt

##Disable HDMI



How to do it now?

It's under:


on the ext4 partition.


Thanks Robert,

It will be easier to access, no need to mount the FAT partition.


But the best part. :wink:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-$version_you_want*
sudo reboot..

* unless that version doesn't support the board. :wink:
