ALEXA NXP GIT access is blocked

Hi community,

We developed and manufactured custom i.MX8 board with Alexa running. We can't get it to work because there is an NXP git source that is blocked. 

This means we can't run the NXP solution that is supposed to run the NXP Alexa "out-of-the-box" solution.

Porting it from the pre-built image won't work as we also have a custom sound card.

We need the tar AWE_CL_8M.tar.bz2 to test out our i.MX8 board. How can we get access, or can you send it to us?

Thanks!

Jorge Reis

Hello,

Have you tried rebuilding the entire Alexa image but with this repo?

$ repo init -u https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imxsupport/meta-avs-demos -b master -m imx-alexa-sdk-4.9.51-8mq_ga.xml

 Apparently, the git that you are using is an old one.

Furthermore, the AWE_CL_8M.tar.bz2 is the package for the voice hat, that in your case, you are not using it. You will need to select "no" at the time you are running the Alexa SDK script and modify the following file. 

  • cp -v /etc/asound.conf /etc/asound.conf.BACKUP
  • cp -v /etc/asound.conf.Regular /etc/asound.conf

Otherwise, you will use the drivers from hardware that you do not have.

Hope this information could help you.

Best regards,

Diego.

Thanks Diego. 

Yes, we are building with that repo.

Your hints about asound.conf were helpful. Our issue is sorted out.

Thanks!
