I am configuring Buildroot to use an OMAP-L138/DaVinci CPU. I'd like
to use the Linux kernel version from
which is a specific tag in the git repository.
In Buildroot I set:
The file that is returned has the name "v3.7-davinci1", and it is a
"gzip compressed data, from Unix" according to file.
Gitorious calls it a "tarball" but it's obviously not a tarball.
Unfortunately Buildroot fails because, understandably, the file isn't
a tar archive.
>>> linux custom Extracting
/opt/br/dl/v3.7-davinci1 | tar --strip-components=1 -C
/opt/br/output/build/linux-custom -xf -
/bin/bash: /opt/br/dl/v3.7-davinci1: Permission denied
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Should I add an option to Buildroot to handle gzipped files? Or is
there a better way?
