Hi,

I have started trying my hands on BBB. When I use this repo,
https://github.com/RobertCNelson/linux-dev
to build BBB kernel, patches are applied on mainline/stable kernel release.

When I build mainline kernel, there is not any defconfig for BBB
(there is omap2plus).

Should BBB specific patches be sent to the mailing list step by step?

Regards,
Amit Kumar

By looking at [1] Buildroot beaglebone defconfig, it suggests that
beaglebon is using omap2plus as defconfig
and seems like it uses [2]am335x-boneblack.dts, which is already there
in mainline.

Thanks a lot,

Thank you for your quick reply.
Mainline kernel build is going on BBB with omap2plus_defconfig.
There is another option, to use repo,
https://github.com/beagleboard/linux
with bb.org_defconfig

It is always possible to configure kernel as required.
Leave issue of defconfig behind.
Mainly I am worried about patches not in upstream/mainline kernel.

I'm going to compare above repository and mainline kernel source.
