The initial source code drop for the Poplar board is now available on GitHub.com/Linaro.
This drop includes source for ARM Trusted Firmware, U-Boot, and a 4.11 based upstream kernel along with documentation on how to build the software and tools to flash it to the Poplar board.
This release of source code, tools and documentation provides:
- The ability to boot in 64-bit mode.
- Console functionality via the micro USB port.
- Network via ethernet.
- All cores enabled.
- The ability to flash the board via USB flash drive.
To start, please review the README for pointers to the instructions for downloading. ( https://github.com/Linaro/poplar-tools/blob/latest/README ).
This public drop is the first of many and the team plans on providing updates as we receive feedback and functionality becomes available. For follow-on drop announcements, questions or to provide feedback, we will use this forum. Bugs can also be submitted at the soon to be available bugs.96boards.org (Product: Poplar).
