Hi Bruce,

I'm not entirely familiar with the mechanism that gets the defconfig from
the BSP to the .config in work area, but here is how things currently look. The
two files aren't a direct match as there appear to be some formatting
differences, but the variables in the SOC/ARCH section seem to correlate
partially (ie. it knows its trying to build for an at91sam9x5 SOC).
I'm currently using a fork of the meta-atmel layer for my at91sam9g25 board. If I remember when they added at91sam9x5 support for meta-atmel, I think the layer was on kernel 3.6.9 and now it's on 3.10. There's been a lot of machine and device tree related configuration changes for this chipset between 3.6.9 and 3.10, so that configuration might not work for 3.10.

The configuration I'm currently using is over at https://github.com/evensonbryan/meta-atmel/tree/master/recipes-kernel/linux/files/at91sam9x5ek/linux-3.10-at91. It also has some patches I added in to pick up some missing peripheral support for my system. You may want to give that a try and see if it helps.

Regards,
Bryan

Given the fact that the ARCH and DT variables don't appear to match, it
looks like this might be device tree related.

The reason I asked is that in the past, the error you are seeing was related to
the machine not being properly defined in the kernel's .config.

FWIW, assuming you have a full "defconfig", and not a "save_defconfig"
variant, the path from it to the final .config is pretty much a copy into the
kernel and a "make oldconfig", so nothing is thrown away unless there is a
missing dependency, or the Kconfig doesn't exist in the given kernel.

It's worth checking via menuconfig to see if anything obvious is missing, and
trying some quick builds to rule out a bad configuration.

I was hoping the code out of the box was going to be able to provide a
demo image that I could build and poke around in for some guidance. My
ultimate goal is to port the at91sam9x5ek machine definition to one for the
at91sam9g20ek demo board and then port THAT over to a custom machine
based roughly off that reference design.

Hi,

Not sure if this is the correct place to email this, but I've seen a
few other meta-atmel references so I figured I'd give it a shot.

I'm attempting to setup a core-image-minimal build using the
guidelines in the meta-atmel README for the at91sam9x5ek machine
type.
When the kernel build goes to link, I get a "no machine record
defined" error. Is this something others are seeing in the meta-atmel
demo builds?

It's a pretty benign build setup according to the README:

git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky

cd poky

git checkout dora-10.0.1 -b dora-10.0.1

git clone git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded

cd meta-openembedded

git checkout 6572316557e742c2dc93848e4d560242bf0c3995 -b my_branch

cd ..

git clone http://github.com/linux4sam/meta-atmel

source oe-init-build-env /workspace/build-atmel

modify local.conf:

MACHINE ??= "at91sam9x5ek"

PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"

modify bblayers.conf:

bitbake core-image-minimal

Setting this up, I get the following build configuration and error:

Any thoughts on what might be missing from the README or my
implementation of it to get this demo build working?
Can you confirm that the final .config for the board has the machine
definitions that you'd expect for the board ?

Bruce

Brian
