Wondering how to manage and install the various rpms generated under tmp/deploy/rpm?
smart is the application you need on the target to replace apt-get
Please set your local.conf with the following:
# It is also recommended you use build history, which adds some sanity checks to package versions, in conjunction with the server that
# is running the PR Service. To enable build history, add the following to each building system's
# It is recommended to activate "buildhistory" for testing the PR service
INHERIT += "buildhistory"
BUILDHISTORY_COMMIT = "1"
PRSERV_HOST = "localhost:0" # This will set up your host computer as Package Revision Server
// PACKAGE_FEED_URIS = "http://10.170.96.7/imx7rpm" #please place any server ip addr, this one is mine.
add also the following to enable the package management (smart):
EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "package-management"
Setup your own http server, and link the server repository with your tmp/deploy/rpm repo (your are free to use your preferred http server).
Since Morty (yocto 2.4), smart has been deprecated, and now the package management is done with dnf (from Debian).
Please check dnf document to get more to know about dnf.
The dependencies are still poorly controlled.
After compiling a pkg the easiest remain: dnf install package.rpm
root@imx8mmevk:~# dnf install libfuse2-2.9.7-r0.aarch64.rpm
