I am working on P series processors (P5040,P1022 and P1010). I want to add some files to rootfs image. With reference to the How to add custom application to linux rootfs, I have been trying to add files to the path "\meta-fsl-networking/recipes-extended/merge-files/files/merge" but that didn't work.
Then I noticed that in my Qoriq getting started manuak, QorIQ SDK v1.8 Info Center.pdf, under section 18.104.22.168 (FAQs) How do I add a pre-built binary into the rootfs? the following is the answer:
- cd meta-fsl-ppc/recipes-extended/merge-files
- Put the files into files/merge, e.g. put bash into files/merge/usr , bash will be included in usr/ of the new rootfs.
- Build new rootfs image:
• $ bitbake <rootfs-target>
I have put the file name "test_file1" under the folder meta-fsl-ppc/recipes-extended/merge-files/files/merge and "test_file2" under meta-fsl-ppc/recipes-extended/merge-files/files/merge/usr.
Then I have executed the following:
bitbake -c cleansstate fsl-image-minimal ; bitbake fsl-image-minimal.
The rootfs under <yocto_install_path>/build_p5040ds_release/tmp/work/p5040ds-fsl-linux/fsl-image-minimal/1.0-r0/rootfs doesn't have my files. Whats the way out?
