Re: [Ltib] BSP for i.MX31 and i.MX21

Hi Wolfi,

It would take a long time to explain, but the content on the GPP is
approved for release asynchronously to the referencing CVS.  This means
that occasionally there will be packages you can select but are not
available for download.   What you will tend to find is that the GPP
content leads savannah CVS.

For this particular package, the current internal BSP has superseded
this version of mxc-misc and so explains why the approval for this
content is not being pushed out (it is no longer referenced internally).
If you really want this package, I can get the spec file updated, but
otherwise I'd just say de-select it.  Don't use the imx21 variant, I
have no idea if that is relevant to the imx31.

Regarding the imx21ads it has not been merged out yet as the BSP
maintainer for this has not yet released it AFAIK.  The best thing to do
is to contact Freescale support (see doc/LtibFaq) if you have questions
about particular BSPs.

As for the newer kernel in the ISO image, again that is because the
content on the GPP and the references from savannah CVS are
asynchronously updated.  In due course this will appear in savannah CVS
(next time I merge out).  If you need this in a hurry I'd recommend
downloading the iso.  I'm not sure if this kernel applies to the imx21,
again that's another question for Freescale support.

Regards, Stuart
