Hello Einar,

Note that this is really off-topic for the meta-freescale list
but we're happy to help.

Note that if you're just getting started, there's a tarball
of a recent kernel, modules, and boot script here:


as discussed in this blog post comment:

Our latest kernel branch is 'boundary-imx_3.0.35_1.1.1' and
can be retrieved from Github:

Please contact us off-list if you need any help getting this
built in your environment.
