Dear all,

 

We want to implement ftrace function in L3.14.28 Linux BSP.
(bb file is based on the fsl-image-gui.bb)
However I cannot enable the ftrace function.

Would you tell me how to enable the ftrace function?

 

We refer to the following URL.

 - https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Tracing_and_Profiling#General_Setup
 - https://yoctoproject.org/docs/1.7/profile-manual/profile-manual.html

 

We added the following line to conf/local.conf.
  $ EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "debug-tweaks tools-profile"
  $ PACKAGE_DEBUG_SPLIT_STYLE = 'debug-file-directory'

 

And then bitbak is executed.
However, tracing folder is not made under /sys/kernel/debug/.

 

We suspect that a procedure is not enough.
If there is the package which should be added to IMAGE_INSTALL_append more, would you tell us it?

 

On the other hand, we exclude the following item from IMAGE_INSTALL_append
 - packagegroup-fsl-tools-testapps
 - packagegroup-fsl-tools-benchmark


May we have any advice?

Best Regards,
Yuuki
