How to start Weston in fsl-image-validation-imx image?

I have succesfully build the fsl-image-validation-imx using Yocto. I tried to start weston using weston-launch but this doesn't work (drm-backend not found). Is there still an issue or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for the replies! I won't be testing it any time soon though because I decided to use Debian on the i.MX8 platform.

Hi, Nico Coesel

Kindly build your yocto image (fsl-image-validation-imx) with the following two modification in your conf/local.conf.

  • DISTRO ?= 'fsl-imx-wayland'
  • IMAGE_INSTALL_append = "wayland weston"

I am able to use weston-launch on i.MX6qsabresd board, yocto build version 4.9.88 with the above two changes.

Hope, this would be helpful.

Regards,

Shivani Patel

Hello,

As Shivani says, you need to see if you are using the wayland distro. Otherwise, you cannot start the weston process. Another way to make that is with the below command line when you are initializing the building machine.

DISTTO=fsl-imx-wayland MACHINE=<your machine name> source fsl-setup-release.sh -b <your build dir>

Whit that initialization, you should see the local.conf file with the configuration that Shivani says.

Hope this can help you.

Best regards,

Diego.
