Hello all,

I am working with Yocto SDK 2.0 (and also tried 2.0-1703) with the p4080ds target


Now I need to change the Kernel to be Fully Preemptive RT.

Is it enough only to turn on the "Fully Preemptive Kernel (RT)" in Kernel configuration, or RT patch should be loaded in addition?

If I only turn on the "Fully Preemtive Kernel (RT)", the system starts up with the message:

"Configuring network interfaces... BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at rtmutex.c:917".


If I configure the local.conf with:

PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel = "linux-yocto-rt"
COMPATIBLE_MACHINE_p4080ds = "p4080ds"

and run the command "bitbake fsl-image-core", this commands fails with errors: "udbg.c:164: undefined reference to `early_console' " and "core.c:301: undefined reference to `early_printk' ".


What is the correct way to enable the Fully Preemptive RT configuration?


Thanks in advance,
