Hi,

I am really sorry for replying your message too late. Thank you so much for
your help to give me the link of SG9 kernel, but there is a major question
here.

According to Tizen Porting Guide documentation
<https://wiki.tizen.org/Tizen_3.0_Porting_Guide#Porting_OAL_Interface_3>,
in addition to device drivers, we need OEM Abstraction Layer (OAL) or HAL
to get the full functionality of devices.  How can I get OALs for each
subsystem? Does the OEM provide OAL plugings itself or do I have to
implement each interface separately for tizen?
After syncing repo, I have a directory in "platform/adaptation", do sub
projects in this directory contain what I need to get the features of SG9
on Tizen?

Regards,
Raouf
