Thank you for your response. I have a better understanding and a sense of direction.

Ok so rather than me banging on in lots of tangential topics about how important upstream support is, I thought I would start a new thread to discuss efforts to bring mainline linux support to our Geminis.


Hello everyone,

Thank you for this post @Murple2

What is the significance of getting access to the UART module?

MediaTech is selling a dev board with the X20 on it.
The dev board does not mention any GSM connectivity, although the X20 it self does

I have not played with a SoC dev board before. Does anyone have experience with a SoC api?
Do they give a well documented library that gives us full access to their hardware?  
Why do companies like this not want to freely give out a well documented library for users to play with? I would like to be able to just go on their website and download this library.
How does a company like Planet Computers go about developing for a SoC? They have to sign NDA? A non public dev board for the X27 exists or the X family is so similar you just use the same code.

When you say there is no upstream support, what this means is that MediaTech has not submitted any code/drivers to the linux kernel that drives their hardware. Is this correct?

Please help me understand how this scene works.
