i.mx8 software installation and development

 Hi:

   I'm totally new to i.mx8 platform,I followed the yocto project guide and built a img with instructions below:

         DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=imx8mqevk source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build-xwaylan

         bitbake fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx

Then I burn it to SD card and it runs OK!

   

Before i.mx8 platform,I  developed on BeagleBone(TI AM3358) and Jetson(INVIDIA) before,the official website will provide    a full distribution like debian or ubuntu. So I can develop on that platform easiely. 

   

But on i.mx8,it seems that the distribution is customized,it has not  dpkg, apt-get or other pakage-management software.(Or I didn't find it,If so, I apologize..)

So...

If I want to install a software, even like gcc , whether the only way to install it is to download the *.tar package by myself and install it ?

Or is there a better way to develop on i.mx8 platform?

I'm not asking for anything, I just want to know the answer,thanks a lot!

Best Regards

downey
