Device Support and Testing: PandaBoard

Project Description

Various ARM devices need different driver sets and/or kernels. This project will test the Fedora-ARM system on the PandaBoard, creating a kernel that works well with it, and figuring out how to use as many of the built-in peripherals as possible.

Project Details

Begin with research into the Pandaboard form factor and what drivers are required for it. Also learn about other projects for putting Linux on Pandaboard: Ubuntu, Linux Minimal, and Android. Finally, build a kernel with as many of the on-board peripherals as possible working.

Project Plan

Tracking mechanism: Bugzilla

Key contacts: ctyler, PaulW

Goals for each release and plans for reaching those goals:

  • 0.1 Initial research into the Pandaboard and required drivers
  • 0.2 Bootable kernel, initial documentation
  • 0.3 A kernel (or kernels) for use with the PanadaBoard and the Fedora 12 or Fedora 13 root filesystems; user documentation on how to set up the PandaBoard with Fedora; wiki notes on setting up other ARM devices
