Hi all,
I have compiled a new kernel for Orange Pi with success, here is the tutorial step by step:

  1. sudo apt-get install git build-essential libncurses5-dev u-boot-tools uboot-mkimage
  2. git clone https://github.com/silentcreek/bananapi-kernel --depth 1
  3. cd bananapi-kernel
  4. make sun7i_defconfig
  5. make menuconfig                      # exit & save     
  6. make -j2 uImage modules          # ~ 2.5h working
  7. sudo make modules_install
  8. sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot
  9. sudo mv /boot/uImage /boot/uImage_old  # save precedent uImage, can be restored
  10. sudo cp arch/arm/boot/uImage /boot
  11. sudo reboot
Copy code

This is build guide on board. We can cross compile kernel on x86 machine. It'll be faster.

Here is my script:
https://github.com/igorpecovnik/BananaPI-Debian

Maybe a bit more complex but it has more value and advantages then others.

It download sources, compile and creates .deb packed kernel + headers + libc. You can boot it also with mainline u-boot and you can build your own modules on the system.

If you run it as nonroot, you can compile kernel+uboot (ignore a lot of errors), with root (no errors) you get out an raw boot ready image with desired system (wheezy, jessie, ubuntu trusty).

Note that kernel is gzip compressed which is not default for old / standard installations. You can either convert it to uImage or use new bootloader with proper u-boot scripts.

I'm think banana pi patches should be merged into linux-sunxi sources. This making unnecessary mess with support for allwinner platforms.

Which kernel version did you recompile? 3.4 ? Or a newer one (Fedora gave me 3.17)
You can also reach me on freenode irc, channel #orangepi username eFfeM

The 3.4 kernel from linux-sunxi supports video acceleration, and more then mainline kernels: http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort.

This should be done differently. I think (not 100% sure) this patch breaks Cubietruck GMAC so you can't just merge ... maybe this is fixed in u-boot.

For the Mali driver:
Is this tutorial http://forum.lemaker.org/thread-5757-1-1-installing_mali_r3p2_kernel_drivers_into_lemaker_kernel_3_4.html
can be adapted for 3.4.104+ (or 3.4.105+), or is it just for 3.4.103+ ? or just for banana ?

In fact I tried a little and it fails for 3.4.105+ (don't remember the exact error, but "space blank" I think)
