Compile Busybox for IMX6DL

Contributor I

Hello all,

I've downloaded, installed and built YOCTO to compile busybox 1.24.2

I have ran the following steps:

1.- MACHINE=imx6dlsabresd DISTRO=poky source ./setup-environment base

2.- bitbake meta-toolchain

3.- executed to install the SDK

4.- executed environment-setup-armv7at2hf-neon-fslc-linux-gnueabi from the console in which I am running the make of the busybox.

~/Projects/externals/busybox-1.24.2$ make

Probably you are initializing in a wrong way your DISTRO. Try with the following configuration.

$ DISTRO=fsl-imx-wayland MACHINE=imx6dlsabresd source -b <build dir>

However, I highly recommend you to use the yocto compiler. Here you can see how to compile Busybox.

Yocto busybox menuconfig 

Furthermore, here you can find more information about yocto. 

I hope this can help you,

Best Regards,
