u-boot SPL

Hi guys!

what is the difference between compiling u-boot with SPL
enabled/disabled? In both cases I get MLO+u-boot.img.

Newer kernels require that you use a recent MLO (SPL) and u-boot. Note: New u-boot with SPL replaces x-loader which you might find in other howtos.

I know this. Why is MLO generated no matter if I enable or disable SPL?

why do you care?. use MLO if you need it. take a look at makefile to see why if you really must know

Well, you didn’t disable SPL then. But you don’t want to disable building SPL either. If you’re building modern U-Boot, you want the MLO that U-Boot builds.
