Building Linux on p2020rdb using Yocto

589 Views

Hi all,

I have an existing old hardware platform that bases on p2020rdb running Linux 2.6. Now I would like to update and customize the platform to run a more recent version of Linux using Yocto build system. I wonder if I can get some suggestions of how to start here. Any suggestions such as where to get the build software and how to build the images are appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help!

NXP offers SDK 1.9 Linux BSP for the P2020.

Use the following page:

https://www.nxp.com/products/processors-and-microcontrollers/power-architecture-processors/qoriq-pla...

 

Use PC Linux for SDK building. See the Section 3.2.2 of SDK 2.0-1703 documentation:

https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/supporting-information/QORIQ-SDK-2.0-IC-REV0.pdf

 

This SDK has been verified on following Linux distributions: Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS-7.1.1503,

Debian 8.2, Fedora 22 and OpenSUSE 13.2

 

1) Use Ubuntu 14. Do not use Ubuntu 16.

Usually the following command sequence is used for SDK installing under Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit:

  1. sudo apt-get install ubuntu-minimal ubuntu-standard patch vim-common sed wget subversion git-core coreutils libbonobo2-common unzip texi2html texinfo libsdl1.2-dev docbook-utils gawk python-pysqlite2 diffstat make gcc build-essential xz-utils g++ desktop-file-utils chrpath libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev autoconf automake groff libtool xterm libncurses5-dev cvs tofrodos

 

  1. a) command: ls -l /bin/sh

                Message:  /bin/sh -> dash

  1. b) command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash

                Answer after password – No

                Message:

                Removing 'diversion of /bin/sh to /bin/sh.distrib by dash'

                Adding 'diversion of /bin/sh to /bin/sh.distrib by bash'

                Removing 'diversion of /usr/share/man/man1/sh.1.gz to /usr/share/man/man1/sh.distrib.1.gz by dash'

                Adding 'diversion of /usr/share/man/man1/sh.1.gz to /usr/share/man/man1/sh.distrib.1.gz by bash'

  1. c) command for checking: ls -l /bin/sh

                Message: /bin/sh -> bash

 

  1. mount SDK source .iso file
  2. cd <sdk-install-dir>.
  3. ./sources/meta-freescale/scripts/host-prepare.sh

Usually Linux recommends also run the following command: sudo usr/sbin/visudo

  1. Download and unpack the QorIQ Linux SDK v2.0-1703.bz2

Install SDK v2.0-1703

  1. bitbake fsl-image-minimal

 

 

There are also prebuilt images in this SDK. See the Section 3.2.2.


Have a great day,
Pavel Chubakov

I was able to build fsl-iamge-minimal using SDK 1.9. However, I encountered the following u-boot error when booting the target using ramdisk:

=> printenv
