i.MX Yocto Project: How Can I Build the Freescale Yocto Images using bitbake?

1. Follow all steps from Freescale's github repo except the last bitbake command

2. The images that Freescale supports are located on the meta-fsl-demos/recipes-fsl/images folder.

3. Bake the standard Freescale image

build$ bitbake fsl-image-gui

4. The produced Linux image is packaged in several formats; the .sdcard single file has all the system (u-boot + uImage + rootfs) so it can be directly flashed into an SD card

build$ sudo dd if=tmp/deploy/images/fsl-image-gui-imx6qsabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

NOTES:

  • In case of building issues, please follow this link
  • In case of booting issues, make sure: 1. board DIP switches are set correctly 2. you have chosen the correct machine before baking
  • If issues persist, report it to the community

How can I add Kernel Support for Flexcan?

All Boards FlexCAN

I am not sure. Please ask this question into the Yocto Project mailing list.

Hi,

May I ask a question about this process? I followed the instructions above as far as '$ repo sync' and this fails with a bunch of messages along the lines of:

fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
github.com[0: 204.232.175.90]: errno=Connection timed out

and eventually gives up with:

error: Exited sync due to fetch errors

I am behind a proxy, so suspecting this is the problem I read and followed the instructions here: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Working_Behind_a_Network_Proxy using the socat method. The '$ repo sync' step still fails but with slightly different results, now I get messages of the sort:

2013/06/19 11:37:59 socat[9115] E getaddrinfo("", "(null)", {1,0,1,6}, {}): No such file or directory
2013/06/19 11:37:59 socat[9114] E getaddrinfo("", "(null)", {1,0,1,6}, {}): No such file or directory
2013/06/19 11:37:59 socat[9113] E getaddrinfo("", "(null)", {1,0,1,6}, {}): No such file or directory
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Any ideas would be most welcome.

Cheers,

John.

OtavioSalvador, any ideas to get around this proxy issue?

Leo

I think you are missing 'socat' utility.

$: sudo apt-get install socat

Hello,

Thank you very much for your reply. However, I had already done this, witness:

$ socat -V

socat by Gerhard Rieger - see www.dest-unreach.org

socat version 1.7.1.3 on Jul 21 2012 00:02:19

   running on Linux version #29-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 17 18:19:42 UTC 2013, release 3.8.0-19-generic, machine i686

features:

...

I also tried the nc method from the page that I linked to before. This also failed with these errors of this form:

nc: read failed (0/8): Connection reset by peer

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.

Do I need access rights? Or do you think this is also a proxy issue? If so, what else am I missing to get through the proxy?

Again, thanks for your help.

Cheers,

John.

I'd try to check if GIT is really using the proxy script; maybe using a strace or something to debug it.

As I am not a proxy user, I cannot be of much help but maybe you could ask in openembedded-users mailing list about it?

Sorry but I couldn't understand you properly.

Have you succeed ?         

I'm a bit new to this but is this instruction still valid?

I followed the instructions but when I get to the "build$ bitbake fsl-image-gui" step it will process for a while and then:

ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'fsl-image-gui'. Close matches:

  fsl-image-multimedia

I'm now running

build$ bitbake fsl-image-multimedia

Hi

David

You can use following command to verify supported images

bitbake-layers show-recipes | grep image

Thanks

Saurabh

That is useful. Thank you. Is there a description someplace on each of these images?

Hi

David

You can refer "Freescale_Yocto_project_user's_guide.pdf"

pastedImage_1.png

Link?

SABRE Board Reference Design|Freescale

You can download 'L3.14.28_1.0.0_LINUX_DOCS"  or  L3.10.53_1.1.0_LINUX_DOCS

Where can i find the libsub for ultra light board??

Hi,

Is it possible to build freescale yocto images using eclipse ? If so anyone knows steps for the same?

Thank You,

Sharmila
