Difference between meta-freescale and meta-qoriq repositories

We use both T10xx (PPC) and LS1046 (ARM) SOCs and we are using Yocto builds.

So far we have been using only meta-freescale repo from: https://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-freescale

While upgrading to Yocto Kirkstone (4.0.12), we noticed that meta-freescale offers only linux-qoriq_5.10.bb.

There is no 5.15 kernel support available in meta-freescale repo.

~/yocto-sdk/sources/meta-freescale ((c82d4634...)) --|
$ find . -iname linux-qoriq*.bb
./recipes-kernel/linux/linux-qoriq_5.10.bb

|-:~/yocto-sdk/sources/meta-freescale ((c82d4634...)) --|
$

 

But meta-qoriq supports linux kernel 5.15.

/yocto-sdk/sources/meta-qoriq ((afaef5e...)) --|
$ find . -iname linux-qoriq*.bb
./recipes-kernel/linux/linux-qoriq_5.15.bb

|~/yocto-sdk/sources/meta-qoriq ((afaef5e...)) --|
$

Can you share the difference between meta-freescale and meta-qoriq and the road ahead for future Yocto versions?

The layer meta-qoriq contains the latest Yocto BSP changes of Layerscape;

  • And these changes will upstream from meta-qoriq to meta-freescale after NXP BSP releases.
  • NXP does not own the layer meta-freescale, which is belong to Yocto community. It contains some customization of other contributors using our SoCs.

So meta-qoriq + meta-freescale involved in the Layerscape BSP release.

-- https://github.com/nxp-qoriq/yocto-sdk/blob/mickledore/readme

It is recommended to follow the procedure addressed in https://github.com/nxp-qoriq/yocto-sdk to download the latest Yocto BSP for Layerscape.

Thanks for the response!

So far our code base was relying on only meta-freescale.

I understand that we need to have both meta-qoriq and meta-freescale repositories going forward.
