Hi,

we are working on i.mx6 custom designed board. We have power it up for the first time and want port OS to the board. We are working on a host system with Ubuntu 14.04 and i.mx6 board is connected to host system through USB. We are bringing up the board (Os porting) by using Yocto training material as given below:

 

Yocto Training - HOME (https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-94849)

 

here in task #2, it is been suggested to change the machine name based on our board by using command :

 

$vi conf/local.conf

 

Your default local.conf file can looks like:

MACHINE ??= 'imx6qsabresd'

DISTRO ?= 'poky'

PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_rpm"

EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "debug-tweaks"

USER_CLASSES ?= "buildstats image-mklibs image-prelink"

PATCHRESOLVE = "noop"

BB_DISKMON_DIRS = "\

STOPTASKS,${TMPDIR},1G,100K \

STOPTASKS,${DL_DIR},1G,100K \

STOPTASKS,${SSTATE_DIR},1G,100K \

ABORT,${TMPDIR},100M,1K \

     ABORT,${DL_DIR},100M,1K \

ABORT,${SSTATE_DIR},100M,1K"

CONF_VERSION = "1"

 

BB_NUMBER_THREADS = '4'

PARALLEL_MAKE = '-j 4'

ACCEPT_FSL_EULA = ""

 

what if my board is mixture of sabrelite and wand boards. where we are looking for the pins of the board (i think that should be considered). what are all the files which are to be referred while porting the OS.
