I have downloaded the Yocto distribution, i have built the distribution


DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=imx8mmevk source -b build-xwayland

bitbake imx-image-multimedia


Build Configuration:
BB_VERSION = "1.42.0"
BUILD_SYS = "x86_64-linux"
NATIVELSBSTRING = "ubuntu-16.04"
TARGET_SYS = "aarch64-poky-linux"
MACHINE = "imx8mmevk"
DISTRO = "fsl-imx-xwayland"
DISTRO_VERSION = "4.19-warrior"
TUNE_FEATURES = "aarch64"


For building in standalone environment, i tried exporting the toolchain using the steps mentioned in the i.MX_Linux_User's_Guide.pdf  sec 4.5.12 How to build U-Boot and Kernel in standalone environment


Generate an SDK:

DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=imx8mmevk bitbake core-image-minimal -c populate_sdk


Since I build the distribution using the command : bitbake imx-image-multimedia

do i need to execute the command for Generating the SDK as below:

DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=imx8mmevk bitbake imx-image-multimedia -c populate_sdk




Irrespective of the build type, we should execute the below command for generating the SDK

DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=imx8mmevk bitbake core-image-minimal -c populate_sdk


Please clarify.
