Hi Community,

I'm using Yocto project imx-4.9.11_1.0.0_ga and I use i.MX6 sabre-SD Quad as my platform.


First to mention, I used Yocto project imx-4.1.15-1.0.0_ga before and build fsl-image-qt5.

For this image, I could run my application with ./application -platform eglfs.

Because I need to use QT version 5.9 so I tried to change it to new Yocto version.

This is the story why I change to imx-4.9.11_1.0.0_ga.


But now I had faced the other problem.

I do the exactly the same thing that I did on imx-4.1.15-1.0.0_ga.

However I the image of fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx and fsl-image-qt5 could not use -platform eglfs.

Below is the condition that I build them.


For fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx, I use this command "bitbake fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx.".

After bitbake is success, I updated my new root file system to my machine.

Everything look perfect, I could see desktop on my panel.

But while I try to run my application with ./application -platform eglfs, it will show there is no command of eglfs.


So I tried to bitbake the other image fsl-image-qt5 and try this one again.

However, it still has no eglfs.

It will show below error message to me.

Available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland



  1. Why there is no eglfs on new yocto version?
  2. Did I miss anything and cause eglfs is not packing in rootfs?
