20120403 Meeting Agenda


ARM Status

P/omap4: mainly config changes trying to mimic master/generic config as much as possible. The dss/video issue (lp963512) found in the previous rebase is still unresolved (waiting for a new panda board since my own broke down exactly the day after the issue came up) – for the time being (kernel freeze) we are gonna stay with 3.2.0-1411.14 as it is good and no one complained about it, but as soon as i get the new board, it’ll be a
lp971091 (“Pandaboard ES freezes with the default CPU scaling governor ondemand”): i’m investigating this one with the reporter (sending debug kernels&c).
