Where should I start to make picore to CHIP ?
https://bbs.nextthing.co/

Have 4pcs and want to do something with them.

Have seen some good progress with video coding with allwinners cpu/gpu.
https://bootlin.com/blog/allwinner-vpu-support-in-mainline-linux-status-update-week-14/


Yes I know, that the people from company NextThingCo haven't seen for long time...   :-(

Just want to know if i could get any directions how to make tinycore to that board.
If there some info files how to compile the kernel with "ram" function.
And how to make some initram and root.

The easiest way of doing this, maybe with cross-compiling or doing the compiling with the ordinary booted up kernel.

Have seen a great site with cross-compiling, bins.
The old free-electrons site, now with new name. Bootlin.

Hi   patrikg,
several  years ago I also had the idea to bring tinycore to two ARM-based
boards (Wandboard with an i.MX6 and a Freescale i.MX53 Quick-Start board).
Unfortunately I never found the time to finish it.

In that time I found a little "how-to" written by bmarkus how to port piCore  to
other ARM boards:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,17895.0.htm

Maybe it can help you.
And if so, please report when you succeeded.

with best regards
