Hi everyone. My company asked me if I can build Ubuntu Core for the i.MX8 Mini board, from BoundaryDevices.
I’ve successfully compiled Ubuntu Core 16 image for my variant of the board. It is booting sucessfully and detecting the Ethernet, etc.
I’ve compiled the kernel, and the gadget snap all from source.
The only problem I face, is the fact that USB-serial chipsets is detected on the USB port (usbutils-lool), but no kernel module for them is loaded, neither them populating in the /dev/ directory.
My company is requiring serial port access on this, they have a few devices relying on serial ports that they need to interface with the software built snap they have.
Maybe some of you might be able to diagnose the problem, and come up with a fix?
@ogra, I compiled the kernel from BoundaryDevices, they have a kernel source we can maybe use for building Ubuntu Core for the i.MX8 board variants?
(gadget and kernel snapcraft.yaml files on the way soon, need to do cleanup on it. Github repo to follow.)
