Rockchip RK3188 Linux Source Code is Now Available

Good news! I’ve just read Rockchip RK3188 Linux source code has just been released via Rikomagic, and Alok Sinha, the main maintainer of RK3066 source code, has already imported into github, and we should soon see a PicUntu image for RK3188 mini PCs.


Let’s have a look:

[Update: you may have to run “sudo apt-get install libc6-i386” before running below, as mkkrnlimg is a 32-bit binary]

Usually, I immediately look into arch/arm/configs, but this time, there’s a “funny” script called, and .config already have some CONFIG_RK3188, so let’s run it:

After just over a minute, success!:

This kernel image is for Android only, and there’s a little work to modify it as a “pure” Linux kernel, so that it can be used to boot PicUnutu for RK3188.

Let’s go back to arch/arm/configs, and we’ll find several RK3188 configs:

  • rk3168_86v_defconfig
  • rk3188_dongle_defconfig
  • rk3188_ds1006h_defconfig
  • rk3188_ds1006h_v1_0_defconfig
  • rk3188_hotdog_defconfig
  • rk3188_LR097_defconfig
  • rk3188_magicwand_defconfig
  • rk3188_steak_defconfig

However, in arch/arm/mach, there are only board files for rk3188-box and rk3188-ds1006h.
