I am pleased to announced a new Linux release for DragonBoard 410c.
Earlier this year we made the decision to stick to and LTS based kernel for the official Linux releases for DragonBoard 410c. So this release is based on Linux kernel 4.4.9, and we will stay on 4.4.x until the next LTS. In parallel work continue to improve DragonBoard 410c in the mainline kernel (upstreaming).
What’s new in this release
- Upgrade to Debian 8.5.
- Upgrade to Linux kernel 4.4.9
- Added support for GPS
- Added initial support for CSI based camera
- WLAN MAC address is now set in DTB file, not in /lib/firmware/wlan/macaddr0
- Improved audio gain control for analog audio
- Moved left over debug config options in debug.config, and removed them from default config
As mentioned here in the past, in parallel of the Debian release, we also provide an OpenEmbedded BSP layer for DragonBoard 410c, as well as a few additional reference layers called OE RBP. It is possible to use these OpenEmbedded layers to build your own Linux system, the BSP layer for Dragonboard 410c provides the same feature set as you can find in the Debian release. To get started with OpenEmbedded on the Dragonborad 410c, please refer to this wiki:
