Fit multi DTB - openwrt

Hi there

i have been trying to add support to ip50xx ...

I have that support however it seems one has to merge multiple dts's in order to be able to boot successfully

is there a script out there in openwrt that is able to fit multi dtb on an image (fit initramfs)?

I know that qsdk has one but don't want to hack openwrt etc ...

thank you

I did something like that for the BananaPi R64 (mediatek/mt7622), there also we need a board-specific main device-tree and select one additional device-tree-overlay to select active hardware features (SATA vs. 2nd PCIe in this case).

We do not support a single image for different base DTS yet, simply because that wasn't needed yet and we generally provide a dedicated image for each board.

Having initramfs image in FIT is also supported, also see mt7622 boards for example.

yes ... the initramfs image in FIT is build but not working whereas in qsdk it is and they are using multiDBSfit which I am able to boot

Try using this


in target/ipq50xx/Makefile
(add separate_ramdisk to the other FEATURE flags. dt-overlay is another flag you may want to add from what I understand)

Afair QSDK was notorious about requiring very specific FIT configuration name, ie. not config@1 or config-1, but something board-specific. Try setting

DEVICE_DTS_CONFIG := config@foobarqsdkboardname

(obviously replace foobarqsdkboardname with whatever the bootloader actually expects)

thank you

DEVICE_DTS_OVERLAY appended the dtb's to the image
