I cant get the linux side of yocto rpmsg example for imx6sx

Hi,

I am trying to make work the example ping-pong rpmsg, the compilation:

bitbake core-image-minimal

gives not the module that should be in

/lib/modules/3.14.52-1.1.0_ga+g5f6f0a5/kernel/drivers/rpmsg

So, looking for an answer I found someone that says that you should add "kernel-modules" to local.conf

so I did that:

$ MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build

I added the next line to file ~/build/conf/local.conf :

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = "kernel-modules"

and next:

$ cd build

$ bitbake core-image-minimal

But the modules are not in the folder, could you advise?

by the way, does it means where in the file local.conf add the line? I have added this on top, the very fist line

I need understand how it works, so, where can I get the source code of imx_rpmsg_pingpond.ko?

It's a little bit urgent

thanks in advance.

Hi Aaron,

   Have you solve the problem? Hopeful you have done it. And also, I attach the operation step by step in below:

  $ mkdir fsl-release-bsp

  $ cd fsl-release-bsp

  $ repo init -u git://git.freescale.com/imx/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp.git -b imx-3.14.52-1.1.0_ga

  $ repo sync

  $ DISTRO=fsl-imx-x11 MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build-x11

  $ bitbake fsl-image-gui

After that, you can check the RPMSG source code in below path:

And then, in your build directory, execute the below operations:

$ bitbake linux-imx -c menuconfig

pastedImage_0.png

Find the path Device Drivers -> Rpmsg drivers -> RPMSG bus driver -> select the tty driver, and then save it.

then, execute the below:

$ bitbake linux-imx -c compile -f

$ bitbake linux-imx -c deploy

after then, you can get the new zImage and ext3 files to your SD card,( I assume that you can do that)...

Open the SSH console, such as 'Putty' or 'Secure-CRT', then power on your development kit and login in 'root' identity.

For A9 console, you can find the RPMSG driver in below:

and then execute 'cd rpmsg" to enter into it,  insmod imx_rpmsg_tty.ko, then you will find the 'ttyRPMSG" in /dev/ directory, shown below:

pastedImage_2.png

lastly, I am sure you can do the follow steps in person.

Best wishes

Hi Aaron,

   For my machine, I follow the steps as shown below:

  $ mkdir fsl-release-bsp

  $ cd fsl-release-bsp

  $ repo init -u git://git.freescale.com/imx/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp.git -b imx-3.14.52-1.1.0_ga

  $ repo sync

  $ DISTRO=fsl-imx-x11 MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build-x11

  $ bitbake fsl-image-gui

  after above operation, you can get 'rpmsg' files in the driver files just like below path.

pastedImage_0.png

if you can not get what you wanted, try to execute the below three operations.
  $ bitbake linux-imx -c menuconfig              //menuconfig
  $ bitbake linux-imx -c compile -f                 //compile
  $ bitbake linux-imx -c deploy                      //deploy

Dear Aaron,

    I  used two of steps to build the core image, which are "DISTRO=fsl-imx-x11 MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build-x11" and "bitbake fsl-image-gui", after that, I can find the RPMSG source code path as shown below:

pastedImage_0.png

   for the qt5 image, I think it should have included the same files in qt5 image, try to find the path in your machine.

   for your second question, it is possible, but I have no idea right now.

Dear Wei,

The only way to get my driver is based in the discussion below:

https://community.freescale.com/thread/376369#comment-582975

steps:

To create the folder build for bitbake:

MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build

To activate the rpmsg drivers and demos:

bitbake linux-imx -c menuconfig

and then to obtain the sdcard image:

bitbake fsl-image-gui

for the last step I have tried bitbake linux-imx as suggested in the thread of reference but that gives only a zImage and the modules.

I am using the version 3.14.52-r0 like you I dont know why we have unequal results.

Hi Aaron,

  To be fare, we are the same situation at the beging, I try to bitbake the 'core-image-minimal',however, there is no source c file in rpmsg driver (such as drivers/rpmsg/).

  Therefore, you can bitbake the other cores,such as 'bitbake fsl-image-gui',which include the rpmsg c files which you will be wanted. By the way, the 'core-image-minial' is a small image that only allows a device to boot.

Thanks for the prompt answer, the source code will be very useful

Yesterday I have compiled the full image fsl-image-qt5 but the module rpmsg is not there could you advise?

I am thinking about take the source code of module, compile it and then attach it as a mountable module, do you think that it is possible?

Best regards.
