After purchasing a i.MX25 PDK spending two full days following directions and numerous posts on how to fix LTIB for i.MX25 I remain stuck on numerous issues:
- I can't compile LTIB on numerous issues such as lkc (LTIB install -- Failed building lkc), wget and numerous other packages.
- ATK won't run on Windows 7 - 64-bit
I am looking for alternative to aging / broken LTIB. Directions nearly always appear to apply to other newer boards and don't work on my i.MX25.
- Has anyone succeeded in getting Yocto or Open Embedded running on i.MX25 PDK?
- If not, does anyone have a virtual machine properly configured to use ltib for MX25 PDK board?
I have gotten several previous boards running previously (MX233, MX6, MX21, MX31) but this one escapes me.
Thanks for any help you can offer... grasping at straws.
It would be nice to add mx25pdk support into Yocto.
mx25pdk is already supported by mainline U-boot and mainline kernel, so adding it to Yocto would be simple.
Hi Fabio, thanks for that interesting post.
I would be interested in the effort to bring Yocto to the MX25. Certainly with testing and possibly with development.
Could you give me a heads-up on what the procedure might involve? How would I get started?
You need to prepare a patch for adding mx25pdk support into meta-fsl-arm.
Here is an example on how to add a new board:
In this example Daiane added support for mx6 riotboard into meta-fsl-arm-extra. (The -extra means that this board is from third-party. The FSL boards go to meta-fsl-arm instead).
If you have questions about this, then I suggest you post them to meta-fsl-arm mailing list.
one can try install Ubuntu 9.04 (Freescale ltib was tested on that release)
L2.6.31_09.12.00_SDK_SOURCE : Linux 2.6.31 Source Code Files 2009.12
Release support i.MX23, i.MX25
Useful reading for ltib build :
Regarding yocto suggest post to meta-fsl-arm mailing list
Yes, ATK (mean USB connection) will not run on Windows 7 - 64-bit,
probably you can try UART ? Below link for i.MX25 MFG Tool, though
I believe, it will work only on Windows 7 - 32-bit.
Hi Igor, many thanks for these useful links and prompt response... gets me unstuck!
I'll retry everything on Jaunty.
I'm a bit surprised ATK won't run on Win7/64... hardly any machines run 32-bit OS now. Are you aware of efforts to fix ATK to run on most machines?
Many thanks! Will report when I've tried all this. :smileyhappy:
