What hardware we support
Supported Developement Tools
We also maintain a set of how-to's related to cross-compiling
Out primary goal is to provide a common platform to use as the basis for Validation test heads and optimized hardware-specific builds. We work with a few teams to help make this happen:
Toolchain Working group - Validate and integrate a toolchain outputting code optimized for the common target instruction set.
Kernel Working group - Provide a test integration point for kernel consolidation, and bootloader consolidation.
Power Management Working group - Produce images that benefit from the work.
We have weekly meetings that anyone can attend. You can view the schedule and see logs of past meetings here.
We also meet face-to-face at Linaro Connect events.

- On vacation from 12th to 15th
- Get xrestop merged into lava-test and get the results available on validation dashboard
Marcin Juszkiewicz <hrw>
- Linaro toolchain backport PPA
- Monday/Tuesday on vacations
- Linaro backports PPA takes 1.9/2.0GB - need more space there
Riku Voipio <suihkulokki>

collected list of biarch/ia32-libs packages and reviewed their current multiarch status: http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/ToDo
- Submitted libsdl and libpciaccess multiarching patches
- general multiarch testing
- Qemu patch review
- Select the relevant packages (for crosscompile p.o.v) from biarch/ia32-libs list and create a blueprint for multiarching them
- work on fixing any potential roadblocks for getting multiarch crosscompile to work out of box (eg /lib64 symlink, searching libraries from multiarch paths etc)
John Rigby <jcrigby>
- Attended Linaro Connect and Helped drive some sessions. Came away with a long llst of TODOs
- Package an i.MX5 kernel for universe [Done]
- Develop a method of dealing with kernel config changes automatically for kernel CI
- Keep u-boot-linaro more up to date with upstream for u-boot CI
- Write script for kernel merging for kernel CI
- Have another list of things I want to work on. Number one there is recover bricked boards from USB. I believe we can do this just knowledge we have available now no secret sauce needed for omap or mx.
- Fix USB problem with latest upstream SPL enabled kernel. I think I am close on this.
- U-Boot pxe bugs
- My TODO list is long
Development Platform Team Meeting
<rsalveti> #startmeeting <linarobot> Meeting started Thu Aug 11 14:03:45 2011 UTC. The chair is rsalveti. <linarobot> Useful Commands: #action #agreed #help #info #idea #link #topic. <rsalveti> #link https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/DevPlatform/Meetings/2011-08-11 <rsalveti> #topic Announcements <rsalveti> I changed the meeting format a little bit <rsalveti> as posting the status at the wiki and later at the IRC kind of sounds like just duplicated work <rsalveti> we should use this meeting more for discussion and issues <rsalveti> we'll see how it goes :-) <hrw> ok <suihkulokki> makes sense <rsalveti> for that, extra action for everybody <rsalveti> #action Everyone to make sure the report is posted before the meeting at the wiki page <rsalveti> guess for today it's just missing jcrigby's report <rsalveti> jcrigby: ping :-) <jcrigby> sorry, I am here, adding notes to wiki <rsalveti> jcrigby: morning! <asac> o/ <rsalveti> hey asac <rsalveti> welcome ;-) <rsalveti> so, Ubuntu Feature Freeze for Oneiric should be in place today, at 18UTC <rsalveti> so if you have new packages to upload, make sure you're uploading it before 18UTC <fabo> rsalveti: it affects one BP <asac> hmm <rsalveti> fabo: you mean the freescale one? <rsalveti> if so, jcrigby is handling that today <fabo> rsalveti: yes, https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+spec/o-freescale-lt-kernel-ubuntu <hrw> rsalveti: feature freeze != upload freeze <rsalveti> hrw: sure, but new packages is kind of a new feature :-) <fabo> it means we'll need a FFe <rsalveti> fabo: we'll see, he created the kernel package already, and janimo already tested it <rsalveti> guess he only need to create the source package now and janimo will take care of pushing it to the archive <hrw> it can even fail to build ;D <rsalveti> push now, fix later ;-) <hrw> most important is to get this to archive * hrw learnt that from ogra <fabo> ok, let's follow up later :) <rsalveti> still on announcements <rsalveti> vacations! <hrw> feature freeze == upload, fix after <rsalveti> marcin will be off next monday and tuesday <rsalveti> aviksil off tomorrow <rsalveti> and tgall_foo kind of off next week, working half days <rsalveti> but, wookey should be back on monday <aviksil> and monday is IBM bangalore holiday :) <rsalveti> aviksil: so are you off tomorrow and monday? <aviksil> rsalveti: yes <rsalveti> ok, noted <rsalveti> enjoy :-) <aviksil> rsalveti: :) <rsalveti> moving <rsalveti> #topic Actions from last meeting <rsalveti> none for now <rsalveti> #topic Linaro Connect Q3.11 <rsalveti> #link https://wiki.linaro.org/Events/LinaroConnectQ3.11/Platform/Sessions <rsalveti> this week shows the sessions we had last week <rsalveti> *wiki <rsalveti> most should have notes at the etherpad link <rsalveti> it was a quite nice week in general, and we finally know what we need to do for CI <rsalveti> too bad tgall_foo wasn't there <hrw> and for lava (star rating) <rsalveti> for the format of the event it seems harder to participate remotely <rsalveti> sure <hrw> rsalveti: harder? impossible rather <rsalveti> yeah =\ <rsalveti> so in general some topics that will probably affect everyone: <rsalveti> - CI :-) <rsalveti> - lava improvements <rsalveti> - qatracker replacement <rsalveti> - hwpack v2 is almost done <hrw> qatracker replacement == lava <hrw> nearly <fabo> hrw: lava-qatracker :) <hrw> fabo: I do not know how they named it <rsalveti> - and native and cross vanilla gcc packages <hrw> s/vanilla/linaro-gcc/ <rsalveti> yup, vanilla linaro gcc ;-) <rsalveti> linaro vanilla, whatever :P <hrw> for me vanilla == fsf <suihkulokki> what is the CI plan for say, cross-building packages ? <rsalveti> suihkulokki: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+spec/linaro-platforms-o-cross-buildd <hrw> suihkulokki: we want CI to build cross toolchain and then cross compile something as a test? <rsalveti> the old buildd idea, at least for usual cross build packaging work <rsalveti> any specific comment about Connect? <tgall_foo> rsalveti, :-/ <hrw> connect had better chairs then ubuntu rally ;) <suihkulokki> hrw: I see, and that would be easy to expand to new testcases as well. <hrw> suihkulokki: yes <rsalveti> remember all to complete the survey before 17 August * hrw did * suihkulokki completed already <rsalveti> great <rsalveti> ok, moving <rsalveti> #topic 11.08 Release Date and Planning <rsalveti> - Still based on Natty (we should probably change to Oneiric at 11.10 or 11.10) <hrw> or at 11.10 <rsalveti> yeah, beta 2 should be stable enough I believe, and it's targeted to September 22nd <rsalveti> oneiric should be released at October 13th <rsalveti> - WGs deliverables deadline is Aug 18 <rsalveti> jcrigby: ^ for u-boot :-) <rsalveti> - RC Deadline is Monday Aug 22 * dlezcano has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds) <rsalveti> idea is to have the RC at monday eod <rsalveti> don't know how much of CI we'll be able to have before the RC, but we'll see how it goes <rsalveti> any questions? <fabo> yep <fabo> libjpeg-turbo release, when? <rsalveti> deadline should also be Aug 18 <rsalveti> for the 11.08 release <fabo> does it include the port for android? <rsalveti> tgall_foo: ? * tgall_foo is in another meeting right now <tgall_foo> fabo, 1.1.2 release should be in the next couple ofdays .. it was to be today but I discovered from regressions <fabo> libjpeg-turbo and u-boot-linaro doesn't have BP assigned or bugs <rsalveti> for u-boot we're tracing the BPs at linaro-ubuntu currently <rsalveti> mostly SPL related work this month <rsalveti> for libjeg-turbo would be good to check with the MWG BP list <fabo> k, I wonder how to improve this <fabo> the BP should land on the milestone page <rsalveti> for each project <aviksil> power cut in my house. running wi-fi router on UPS. may get disconnected in few minutes! <fabo> #action fabo investigates why libjpeg-turbo and u-boot-linaro doesn't have BP assigned (tracked outside of the project?) <fabo> rsalveti: yes <rsalveti> yup, let's discuss this after the meeting <fabo> ok, no more question on my list <rsalveti> ok, moving on <rsalveti> #topic Blueprint review <rsalveti> created this topic to go over the blueprints, just to make sure we're in sync and that all blockers are reported <rsalveti> #link https://launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+milestone/11.08 <rsalveti> we have some BPs already, but still not the final list <rsalveti> Connect affected the priorities, but we should flush everything until end of this week <rsalveti> hrw: I moved the cross toolchain ppa one to 11.08, also adding the 11.08 packages <rsalveti> but guess that you're almost done with the 11.07 items <hrw> rsalveti: yes, finally <hrw> found few new changes to do in them but 11.08 will be far easier <rsalveti> great, can you update the BP later? <hrw> just marked lucid as done <rsalveti> hrw: then the other for you is the binary toolchain, think you can make it for 11.08? <hrw> plan to <rsalveti> hrw: then we have the native and cross for linaro-gcc and also CI for them <rsalveti> for 11.08 I believe it should be enough to deal just the the packages from Ubuntu <rsalveti> but for 11.09 I believe we should work more against the linaro-gcc packages <rsalveti> what do you think? <hrw> moment <hrw> 11.09 we should ci them <rsalveti> asac: if you're still here, want to move the star rating BP for you? <rsalveti> asac: as you updated the wiki and was hunting down the LTs to get the result ;-) <rsalveti> hrw: ok, seems fine <rsalveti> jcrigby: you! :-) <rsalveti> jcrigby: you have the SPL related ones and the freescale lt package <rsalveti> besides the usual packaging for linux-linaro and ti-lt <jcrigby> sorry, having conv with janimo in linaro <jcrigby> rsalveti, just marked all freescale lt stuff done <rsalveti> jcrigby: great :-) <fabo> hehe :) <rsalveti> jcrigby: and for the u-boot related ones, are you comfortable with them? <jcrigby> rsalveti, and once I fix this spl-usb problem I can finish that <jcrigby> I think I have the problem, a dpll setup difference from x-loader <rsalveti> jcrigby: ok, let me know if it's too easy for you and we can move some other bps ;-) <rsalveti> jcrigby: got it <rsalveti> jcrigby: also, I saw some patches and discussions regarding u-boot and fastboot at linaro-dev <rsalveti> don't know in details how related is that with the initial discussion you had in the past <jcrigby> yes, they went to u-boot list too, <jcrigby> timing was interesting as wd is on vacation <rsalveti> hehe, we'll see :-) <rsalveti> maybe some fastboot work for 11.09 <jcrigby> it is very interesting as he has added mmc support which was missing before <rsalveti> yeah <rsalveti> ok, seems you have enough :-) <rsalveti> Dr_Who: tgall_foo: able to talk now? <tgall_foo> rsalveti, yup <rsalveti> you have the usual libjpeg work <asac> rsalveti: yes, leave that to me <rsalveti> and you also said you wanted to do some work on the live-build cross support <rsalveti> asac: great <asac> rsalveti: working with fathi on a better form for this month. and will publish the results for feedback soon <tgall_foo> yes so focus item has been ljt over the past few days, and live-build I pushed an updated last night to close out the one bug <rsalveti> asac: good :-) <rsalveti> tgall_foo: any other specific development for it? besides upstream work <tgall_foo> rsalveti, cross build wise it would be nice to get nano such that was being constructed from it's own base list of packages using multistrap (or akin) <fabo> tgall_foo: how does work ljt for android? is it based on 1.1.2 source code/merged already? <rsalveti> yeah, guess that should be one bp <rsalveti> tgall_foo: and if possible, would be good to have you helping with the CI stuff :-) <tgall_foo> fabo, android is 1.1.1+ 0 <hrw> rsalveti: one more thing - whom to ask for more space for PPA? backports PPA is at 97% full <tgall_foo> rsalveti, sure be happy to help with the CI work as well <rsalveti> hrw: if it's urgent we can ask #is <fabo> tgall_foo: ok, so you're done with ljt after releasing 1.1.2 afaiu <rsalveti> hrw: let's go there after the meeting <tgall_foo> the nano side of live-build should be a pretty small effort so should be reasonable for 11.08 <rsalveti> tgall_foo: great <hrw> ok <tgall_foo> fabo, pretty much save for upstream 1.2 activities <rsalveti> ok, sounds fine <fabo> cool <rsalveti> suihkulokki: you :-) <rsalveti> suihkulokki: how do you want to create the BPs that could fit 11.08? <rsalveti> suihkulokki: by a list of packages, subsets? <suihkulokki> list of packages is probably a good way <suihkulokki> 18th was the deadline for 11.08 ? <rsalveti> suihkulokki: for working groups deliverables <rsalveti> suihkulokki: for image work 22 and for continuous work it could be near 25 <rsalveti> suihkulokki: let's have a discussion later so we can create the bps for you <suihkulokki> ok <rsalveti> suihkulokki: mind moving https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+spec/linaro-platforms-o-ubuntu-tracing-stories to avik? <rsalveti> guess it's more related with the work he's currently doing <suihkulokki> rsalveti: ok. I can help avik with some of the packaging tasks still <rsalveti> suihkulokki: sure, great :-) <rsalveti> ok, and for wookey we'll see next monday <rsalveti> moving on <rsalveti> #topic Bugs and image issues <rsalveti> you can all see the bug list for 11.08 at https://launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+milestone/11.08 <rsalveti> it should have even more bugs later on, but seems this is a good start <rsalveti> the most critical ones are 816638 and 817317 <rsalveti> anyone willing to help with the pulseaudio issue? <rsalveti> bug 816638 and bug 817317 <ubot2> Launchpad bug 816638 in linaro-ubuntu "Pulseaudio consumes 100% of the cpu when trying to play a sound with natty's linaro LEB and 3.0.0-1402-linaro-lt-omap " [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/816638 <ubot2> Launchpad bug 817317 in linaro-ubuntu "[mx51evk] root not found and boot failed to initramfs shell" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/817317 <rsalveti> the second one will just assign to jcrigby :-) <jcrigby> is that last one the ext4 thing? <jcrigby> if so that should be fixed <rsalveti> yeah <rsalveti> bug 709245 is also an interesting one <ubot2> Launchpad bug 709245 in linux-ti-omap4 "ARM SMP scheduler performance bug" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/709245 <rsalveti> was the ping-improve-usb performance one <rsalveti> seems it's not only related with panda after all <hrw> would be nice to check simple aplay/speaker-test for pulseaudio one <hrw> cause it may be kernel bug not userspace <rsalveti> yeah <rsalveti> but pulse eating the whole cpu is also not right :-) <hrw> 709245 one is kernel people <rsalveti> yup <rsalveti> any other bug to be fixed for 11.08? <rsalveti> when triaging bugs just create a bugtask for linux-ubuntu and move it to 11.08 if you think it'd be good to have it fixed for this cycle <jcrigby> re 817317 it is the lt kernel <rsalveti> I thought it was the linux-linaro one <jcrigby> the linux-linaro one does not build at all because of dt mmc issues <rsalveti> jcrigby: 3.0.0-1001-linaro-mx51 <jcrigby> you have to turn off mmc for it to build <rsalveti> yeah, so that's the issue <rsalveti> initially was lack of a config option <jcrigby> so we can get shared headers out of it <rsalveti> that later turned out into a build issue <jcrigby> yes <rsalveti> jcrigby: yeah, also another bp for you, move the headers package into a separated package ;-) <jcrigby> yes <rsalveti> you said it was the first thing for you this month ;-) <rsalveti> ok, running out of time <rsalveti> #topic AOB <rsalveti> anyone? * tgall_foo thinks <rsalveti> going 3 <rsalveti> 2 <hrw> 1 <rsalveti> 1 <rsalveti> #endmeeting <linarobot> Meeting ended Thu Aug 11 15:02:06 2011 UTC. <linarobot> Minutes: http://irclogs.linaro.org/meeting-logs/linaro-meeting/2011/linaro-meeting.2011-08-11-14.03.html <linarobot> Minutes (text): http://irclogs.linaro.org/meeting-logs/linaro-meeting/2011/linaro-meeting.2011-08-11-14.03.txt <linarobot> Log: http://irclogs.linaro.org/meeting-logs/linaro-meeting/2011/linaro-meeting.2011-08-11-14.03.log.html <linarobot> Wiki: http://irclogs.linaro.org/meeting-logs/linaro-meeting/2011/linaro-meeting.2011-08-11-14.03.wiki.txt
