how i compile a program after finished the yocto project. Example: i have linux-yocto-3.0.15 finished and i need to use the "wvdial", how i compile this?
what is wvdial? a kernel module? a custom app?
Wvdial is an app for 3g modem connect to internet.
Available in repository and install with apt-get, but this image yocto dont have repository and package apt-get or yum or aptitude
Sorry, my english is very bad, i am from Brazil.
Hi Lucas Dona Sfalcin. I´m from Brazil too
Olá Daiane, fala português? Estou com dúvidas como compilar aplicações para imagem gerada pelo Yocto. Gerei uma imagem, adicionais drivers para utilizar minha tela touchscreen, meu modem 3g, ficou bem legal, mas não consigo instalar aplicações pois não tem o recurso apt-get nem aptitude nem yum... Qual a forma de eu adicionar uma aplicação ao meu sistema?
Oi Lucas Dona Sfalcin, sim eu falo português, mas aqui estou trabalhando, né? Então tenho que falar inglês!
You can add several "gnome like" apps if you add on your bblayer the meta-gnome. And you I know some people worked to get apt-get available in the final image of a distribution created by yocto project.
But, keep in mind this is a feature of a distribution created using YP, it´s not the the default configuration. The keyword you want is "package feed". http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/latest/poky-ref-manual/poky-ref-manual.html#package-feeds-dev-environment.
It´s not easy, or simple, or fast to implement or keep the server updated! If you need help on this matter, please, use the YP mailing list.
However, I think you don´t need this "feature" on your final product. You are on development phase, and in this phase you miss some packages that are not in your image. What I recommend is that you create, and keep track, of your own image. That one that will be on your final product. And then add the packages you miss during the development, and generate a new binary.
Think that, for example Ubuntu, it must have a program like apt-get, because it´s the intention of the product. But a, for example television based on kernel, maybe you don´t want to provide a way to customer update the interns. Or pay the price to have a package server up-to-date.
