Re: Questions about the name of qemu bin file for different archs

Hi, Bruce

Lost this mail and finally found it.

Thanks for your detailed explanation.

And so, for easily fetching those qemu images, we need to make sure that
these symbol-link must be created according to the defined naming convention in the build-result-repository.
I will check this problem firstly.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi, Jessica

I found qemu bin file name convention is different for different
archs, for example, for x86, it is bzImage-qemuXXX.
For arm, it is zImage-qemuXXX. My question is why it is bzXXX or zXXX,
is there any reason of such naming convention?

The leading part of the image name is dependent
on the type of kernel we are booting.

qemuarm.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "zImage"
qemumips.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "vmlinux"
qemumips-variant.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "vmlinux"
qemuppc.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "zImage"
qemux86-64.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "bzImage"
qemux86.conf:KERNEL_IMAGETYPE = "bzImage"

And those are your differences in the name.

As for why the symlinks may not be created at times, I'm
not sure.

Or I must did name translate for each kind of arch qemu bin file?
Should be something you can script by checking the
