Creating a Linux kernel from the stock linux-cip repo

Don Brown <don.brown@...>

Hi Ben,

As I was working with the Beaglebone Black trying to get the health check to pass, it occurred to me that I don't know how to create a kernel specifically for the BBB using just the stock CIP Kernel from

The linux-cip kernel doesn't have a defconfig for the Beaglebone Black, or for the AM335x CPU as far as I can tell.

The Linaro BBB Health Check pulls the am335x-boneblack.dtb from their repository, but it isn't clear what we need to add to the linux-cip to have KernelCI build the kernel from scratch. Can you please take a look and let us know?

The official repo is at:

It has a bb.org_defconfig here:
Is that all we need?

Thank you!
