The mainline Linux kernel has supported that Atmel board for some time (dating back to 2.6.20, although back then you would also need the maxim.org.za patches), so you need to come up with better selection criteria.

Hi,
thanks for your answer.
What do you mean with the sentence "so you need to come up with better selection criteria", do you mean selection criteria regarding the board ? or regarding the kernel ?
Thanks in advance

Since the subject matter is kernel suggestions, it should be obvious that it's selection criteria for a kernel.

Don't use a release tagged "alpha" or "rc" unless you're prepared for debugging.
Otherwise see discussions/viewtopic.php/f,12/t,24998/ ... tml#p47110
