I have a Le Potato and I’ve been trying to get a buildroot image together. Here’s what I’ve done so far:
- Installed Libre’s buildroot fork from here. (using the
- Downloaded the u-boot image file for the amlogic hardware from here and saved it as
- Compiled the kernel
So far this produces a nice compact initramfs image that appears to UEFI boot into linux. A couple things I’m trying to do and could use some guidance:
SPI isn’t working. I have no /dev/spi* devices at all. Is there a recommended way to get this enabled using Libre Computer’s buildroot repo?
Right now we’re downloading the u-boot image (as described above) and splicing it into the sdcard image. How would we go about tweaking u-boot configuration (either working on device tree configuration, silencing bootloader output) if we’re not compiling it as part of the typical buildroot process?
Any help would be appreciated. The hardware has been fun to tinker with so far.
