Is there a list of which IMAGE_FSTYPES are supported. I didn't see anything in the docs. Looking to see if a u-boot 'mkimage' wrapped set of images is supported or not.
I'm not 100% where the list is, but I can confirm that uImages are supported and work nicely. Assuming that you are talking about the common use case, and not something more exotic :)
I think he means partitioned uimages where you have a kernel + initrd in a single uimage. We don't support that *yet*, but all the needed blocks are there. And we finally get a usecase for having the loadadresses in the machine.conf files :)
Yah, that's what I wondered as well. I've done this locally, but nothing out of the box .. so I had nagging doubts!
What's the IMAGE_FSTYPE for a normal uImage ?
None, it's built by the kernel class, not the rootfs class.
and to expand a bit, the machine conf would have:
KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "uImage"
So the kernel class will build and produce a uImage for deployment.
Ah, so there isnt support for getting a ramdisk wrapped via mkimage.
Correct, or at least not that I've used out of the box, and this is what Koen was commenting on.
