Hi Greg KH,

Scenario is, i want to port linux BSP to the android BSP and for that i am trying to gather the information about the BSP, what exectly it is, where i should change all kind of stuff

Hope i made you clear with what i am looking for

Warm regards

What have you tried and looked at that was not enough information?

And what do you mean exactly by "BSP"?

What exactly are you trying to do?  Specific questions are best.

good luck!
