Yocto Task #1 - Download the source code ?

To create embedded Linux image for imx8qxpmek evaluation board, I went to Yocto Training - Home as follows:

I started with Task #1 - Download the source code.  I was expecting that Task #1 would contain command to Download poky source:  $ git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky --branch warrior

And then I thought Task #1 would provide following command to prepare the build:

$ source oe-init-build-en <build_directory>

But Task #1 is providing commands to download BSP source.  For which board are we downloading the BSP source?

Why is Task #1 asking to Download source code from community and NXP Code Aurora?  Shouldn't it be one or the other?

Do I need to Download poky source code using the git command above?  Or I'll get every needed to build yocto using commands in Task #1 ?

Hello Amer Naseem,


The Yocto training you are referencing to is focused on the Community BSP (more information on the link below)
https://freescale.github.io/#documentation


If you are working with an NXP board I would recommend starting with one of the BSP Releases, available at the following link:
https://www.nxp.com/design/software/embedded-software/linux-software-and-development-tools/embedded-...


For the imx8qxpmek board the latest BSP Release available is L4.19.35_1.1.0. You can download the documentation for this BSP on the link below (you may need to login to download this documentation bundle)

https://www.nxp.com/webapp/Download?colCode=L4.19.35_1.1.0_LINUX_DOCS


Inside, you will find the i.MX Yocto Project User's Guide, which has instructions on how to setup Yocto on your host machine to build images for this board.


Regards,
