Linux mainline support

#1

what is the status of linux mainline support for Edge-V ? At least device tree etc stuff?

See the post below which include some device but not the one from Khadas. Did devs get their sample device etc?

PS: Mainline Linux support is key for success of such an device.

We will try to send basic DTS support to upstream next month, you know that we don’t have much experience about this, but we will try…

@numbqq Well you should gain more experience in the Mainline stuff. A lot of Brends did not success as they should because of lack of Mainline support.

You could contact some Linux mainline developers and contribute them a device, but they will of course need you and all information of what that device can == Specification like in link @balbes150 posted.

@numbqq You gain experience from doing. Mailing lists are nowhere near as simple as sending a PR on github, but if I can figure out how to send changes upstream it’s not impossible! :slight_smile:
