Beaglebone Black kernel sources

Asked by 7 months ago
I need to build a patched BBB kernel, so have unwillingly started one of my usual vicious fights with git. The first question to answer is where the current BBB linux kernel sources are kept - I don't think github is the default, though some sources can be found there. It seems to be a choice between: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git and git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git Does anyone know which of these is canonical / what the differences are between them? Thanks - Will

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git is the canonical mainline and git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git is a stable fork with bug fix patches applied for some time moving forward. The "official" BeagleBoard.org kernel is at http://github.com/beagleboard/kernel as a set of patches against the stable fork.
