New gadget and kernel for pandaboard


#1

Hi there,

in order to get my old pandaboard to work again (and have some fun doing so), I forked roseapple-pi-ubuntuCore-build to https://github.com/ThyMYthOS/pandaboard-ubuntuCore-build and changed a few files so that it actually boots Ubuntu Core.

Reading https://ograblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/30/building-u-boot-gadget-snap-packages-from-source/, I guess I should split up the repo into kernel and gadget and use snapcraft for building everything, but at least the current flow works.

As I said, booting the device works, but the pandaboard has a USB ethernet adapter (SMSC95xx) that doesn’t show up during the setup phase of Ubuntu Core. Any ideas how to enable this adapter?

Best regards,
Manuel

It seems for whatever reason CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD is not enabled for omap2plus_defconfig in Ubuntu Trusty kernels. When I enable this option in snapcraft.yaml, the network comes up properly.

I also created a standalone repo for the gadget: https://github.com/ThyMYthOS/panda-gadget

Who would be responsible for reviewing gadget snap in the store?
