I have some queries regarding the linux kernels diff...
I have download the 2.6.29 linux kernel supporting beagle board (i
mean this kernel will have all the hardware specific driver etc
changes merged in the kernel) from the following link throught git.
And i have downloaded the beagle android source form
So now i ran a diff between these two kernels. I was expecting that
I'll get only Android related changes in the diff. But the diff
contains changes in all arch, drivers etc...
So can anybody tell me that why am i getting these diffs? I think I
should only get the android related diffs.
Kernel from labs.embinux.org for Android is derived from omap-2.6.29
kernel, while current HEAD for linux-omap
kernel is at 2.6.30
As well Embinux kernel also contains many patches which are not yet
in mainline along with android patches.
I hope this clears why you are getting diffs in other files as well.
May be you are not able to understand what Shrinivas is try to say.
He has got the difference while comparing
Beagle Board Linux Kernel : 2.6.29
and Beagle Board Android Kernel : 2.6.29
Please Correct me if I am wrong Shrinivas
Ohhhh if that is the case, then probably you are not able to understand what I said in other statement.
“As well Embinux kernel also contains many patches which are not yet in mainline along with android patches.”

I think Rupesh had gaven a correct answer about Shrinivas's question
how to run a diff between these two kernels to compare two different
kernel git branch?
do you use diff command in linux to do so? how to achieve that?
