TBH, I hadn't realised it was the close source kernel, it was just 
whatever I was using before. I had assumed that linux-fslc-imx was the 
closed source and linux-imx was the open source! I have an iMX6 and the 
following are recipes are within meta-freescale, which should I be using?






Best regards,
