buildroot is gpl v2

hi

This does not appear to be a commercial site so thought I would post it in case it helps?

All of the end products of Buildroot (toolchain, root filesystem, kernel, bootloaders) contain opensource software, released under various licenses.

As you can guess, I have just ordered an allwinner A10

This would be a very worthy goal to achieve a buildroot for the base.

hi  (Low Priority)

my allwinner a10 has just arrived, if you are asking me to start work on building the toolchain,
I will certainly give it a try.

If I have any issues should I post here? or in the remaster section?

I know the remaster section is for x86 but I am not sure about embedded/core stuff.

cheers

--------------

If I am successful with any build can I post here and link to my build instructions, tczs, dd-images (or partimage images) etc?
Note that I have not even started on them so no need to reply any day soon but within weeks would be nice. I still have some x86 things to complete so won't do anything for at least 2 weeks

Please use the Allwinner section for any and all discussion/development for Allwinner specific devices.

Note too, that an image is already provided for Allwinner devices, I would suggest to start there and see if your device is capable to run it. It may be that you need to use your board's specific script.bin. If so please state such and then share your script.bin so that others that have your specific device will benefit.
