Re: Kernel Changes to iMX8M-EVK



Apologies for the delay.
I did not get a chance to build an image yet.
I am experimenting with a minimal Root FS. So i took a prebuilt image from NXP website and swapped out the RootFS.
I was able to boot with the my experimental Root FS.

I am yet to do any validations on Peripherals. I will let you know how it works when i get to it.

I have been playing with the Yocto Image for iMX8M-EVK.

Glad to hear that you have one.  Can you please share some feedback on it?  Do all the peripherals work?  Are you using thud with 4.14 kernel?  Is it stable? 

Any & all feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


I would like to use the latest mainstream kernel with this image.
I have been having trouble finding the following information:
  • Has all the changes specifically done for iMX8M-EVK has been merged to mainstream kernel.
  • If not, how to figure the list of kernel patches that has to be applied on top of mainstream kernel.

Any help is very much appreciated.
