AM5749: How can we upgrade linux kernel after rebuild for boards in production?

Part Number: AM5749


we have custom board based on AM5749 processor.

I know how to do it on my development board with SDK (simply make install).

We have our own ipk-repository and successfully upgrade our application from it. This solution is the best. But is there any method to upgrade also kernel.

I have found `/opt/scripts/tools/` for beagle board.

Is there similar script for SDK?

  • HI Denis,

    You can use our latest SDK:

    The above has 4.19 based Linux kernel. That is the latest supported kernel.

    If you are looking for newer versions then currently that is not yet supported.

  • Thanks for quick reply,

    We need 5.03. I mean how to upgrage rebuilded kernel on remote boards. 

    If I simply do 

    opkg update
    opkg upgrade

    After long upgrading I'll get errors like:

    Configuring kernel-module-xt-tcpudp-4.14.79-rt47-g2eb206c3a6.
    Configuring kernel-module-zaurus-4.14.79-rt47-g2eb206c3a6.
    Configuring kernel-modules.
    Configuring kvanta-video-decoder.
    Configuring kvanta-video-detector.
    Collected errors:
    * check_data_file_clashes: Package kernel-image-zimage-4.14.79-rt47-g2eb206c3a6 wants to install file /boot/zImage
    But that file is already provided by package * kernel-image-zimage-4.14.79-rt47-ga72bf1418c
    * check_data_file_clashes: Package kernel-image-uimage-4.14.79-rt47-g2eb206c3a6 wants to install file /boot/uImage
    But that file is already provided by package * kernel-image-uimage-4.14.79-rt47-ga72bf1418c

    Is there any reciept to upgrade kernel on remote device for our specific kernel?
