Hi,there.

I'm using the imx8qxpmek board,and i want to install some software by a package manager (just like apt-get in Ubuntu and so on), is a tool like this available?

And I learned that there maybe a way to use the yocto, but when using yocto, it should flash the image once there is a modify, not convenience.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Xi Chenchen,

The i.MX BSP does not have a package manager like apt-get. You would need to add it to the Linux image. There is some information on the following documents, although further customization would be required.

I hope these help as a starting point!

I'm in the same position.  I bought this evaluation kit to evaluate if the hardware will work for our project.  I don't want to spend days or weeks doing a full Linux bring up just to install some standard packages like git, mongodb, nodejs, etc.

You guys know this board, so you must be able to provide apt-get or yum or similar in a Linux image or give some instructions on how to build one of them from source.

Alternatively, are there no full Linux distribution images that will run on this board?

Thanks.
