# mkdir ~/bin

# curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo

# chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

# export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

 

# mkdir imx-yocto-bsp-5.4.24-2.1.0

# cd imx-yocto-bsp-5.4.24-2.1.0

# repo init -u https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/imx-manifest -b imx-linux-zeus -m imx-5.4.24-2.1.0.xml

# cd .repo/manifests

# gedit imx-5.4.24-2.1.0.xml

         Modify git to https like below:

  <remote fetch="https://git.yoctoproject.org/git" name="yocto"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/Freescale" name="community"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/openembedded" name="oe"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/OSSystems" name="OSSystems"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/meta-qt5"  name="QT5"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/TimesysGit"  name="Timesys"/>

  <remote fetch="https://github.com/meta-rust"  name="rust"/>

  <remote fetch="https://git.openembedded.org"  name="python2"/>

  <remote fetch="https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx" name="CAF"/>

Save it and exit.

# cd ~/ imx-yocto-bsp-5.4.24-2.1.0

# repo sync

         Begin to compile i.MX8MQ BSP:

# DISTRO=fsl-imx-wayland MACHINE=imx8mqevk source imx-setup-release.sh -b build-wayland

         If users want to use chromium, do it like below, otherwise omit the step.

       Add CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "chromium-ozone-wayland" to local.conf

       And use 8 thread to compile BSP

# gedit ./conf/local.conf

……

BB_NUMBER_THREADS =”4”

PARALLEL_MAKE =”-j 4”

CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "chromium-ozone-wayland"

……

         Save it and exit.

[comment]

         If your ubuntu has 8GB DDR, BB_NUMBER_THREADS can be set to “2”, PARALLEL_MAKE can be set to “-j 2”.

# bitbake chromium-ozone-wayland -c fetch

# bitbake imx-image-full

Use ulimit -n 4096 to solve the issue. Then continue.

# bitbake imx-image-full

chromium compilation error:

pastedImage_7.png

         Compile chromium-ozone-wayland separately.

# bitbake chromium-ozone-wayland -c cleansstate

# bitbake chromium-ozone-wayland -c compile

pastedImage_8.png

         Use the command to solve the problem.

# gedit ../sources/meta-imx/meta-sdk/dynamic-layers/browser-layer/recipes-browser/chromium/chromium-ozone-wayland_%.bbappend

DEPENDS += "\

        libxkbcommon \

        virtual/egl \

        wayland \

        wayland-native \

         mesa         \

"

      

  Add mesa to DEPENDS

         Save and exit.

         Continue to compile it.

# bitbake chromium-ozone-wayland -c compile

pastedImage_13.png

         done, continue to compile full image

 

# bitbake imx-image-full
