Yes. It is documented on the commit log as follows: commit d5e730317a4d1aa94bdfbf25654847fe788d70df Author: Otavio Salvador <ota...@ossystems.com.br> Date: Wed Aug 5 08:50:26 2015 -0300 Drop Freescale official Linux kernel for i.MX23, i.MX28 and i.MX5 SoC families The Linux kernel provided by Freescale for i.MX28 and i.MX5 is too old (188.8.131.52) and there are no plans to upgrade it, as the OE-Core is going to use GCC 5.2 as default compiler soon and it is not possible to compile this kernel with the new toolchain, thus the removal. The metadata related to the i.MX23, i.MX28 and i.MX5 SoC family, which is dependent of this Linux kernel support, has been removed in this commit so if someone ever wants to bring it back it is easy to find out all the necessary changes. The recipes affected are: - alsa-state - amd-gpu-x11-bin - gtk+3 - imx-lib - imx-test - imx-vpu - libfslcodec - linux-imx - mesa - qt4-embedded-free - qt4-x11-free - qtbase - xf86-video-imxfb Signed-off-by: Otavio Salvador <ota...@ossystems.com.br> Acked-by: Daiane Angolini <daiane.angol...@freescale.com> As mentioned on the commit log, it is easy to bring its support back as far someone gets a working kernel with current toolchain /or/ adds support for mainline GPU. I think there were some work on this regard in past but I am not aware of how good is it. If you find someone please let us know. -- Otavio Salvador O.S.
