Tango-edit-clear.pngThis article or section needs language, wiki syntax or style improvements. See Help:Style for reference.Tango-edit-clear.png

Reason: Several Help:Style issues. (Discuss in Talk:Yocto#)

The Yocto Project (YP) is a popular open-source collaboration project focused on embedded Linux developers. In early versions of YP it could be problematic to get it running on Arch Linux. In later versions this is no longer the case, and hopefully in the future it will be even easier. For information about how to get it running on older version, there is a good guide here.

For this guide the focus will be on YP Core 1.8 (Fido) and newer.

Note: Arch Linux is not validated to work with Yocto/Poky.

Installation

Install the git, diffstat, unzip, texinfo, python2, chrpath, wget, xterm, sdl, socat and cpio packages.

Install the gcc-multilib package from the official multilib repository. You may recieve the following conflicts

:: gcc-multilib and gcc are in conflict. Remove gcc? [y/N] y
:: gcc-libs-multilib and gcc-libs are in conflict. Remove gcc-libs? [y/N] y

Resolve these by choosing 'y' (we actually want the multilib versions)

Clone the official git repository. In this example the fido branch is used.

$ git clone --branch fido git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky.git ~/poky

YP Core requires the use of python2, from the Python page

$ mkdir -p ~/bin
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2 ~/bin/python
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2-config ~/bin/python-config
$ export PATH=~/bin/python2:$PATH

Build core-image-minimal

Time to build the core-image-minimal target. First place yourself in the poky directory and source the environment script. Then build it with bitbake

$ cd ~/poky
$ source oe-init-build-env build-qemux86
Tip:

In ~/poky/build-qemux86/conf/local.conf

  • Change the directory for downloads in order to reuse them, example DL_DIR ?= "~/poky-downloads"
  • The build system can use a substantial amount of disk space during the build process, in order to preserve disk space add the line INHERIT += "rm_work"
$ bitbake core-image-minimal

WARNING: Host distribution "Arch-Linux" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution.

This will take some time to complete. For more details about yocto there is a Quick Start Guide

Note: The first warning about Arch Linux not been validated is expected. The second warning can happen when failing to download a resource, the build system will then attempt to get that resource from the next mirror.

Run core-image-minimal

To run this image in QEMU, start it with the runqemu command as follows

$ runqemu qemux86

Continuing with the following parameters:
KERNEL: [/home/user/poky/build-qemux86/tmp/deploy/images/qemux86/bzImage-qemux86.bin]
ROOTFS: [/home/user/poky/build-qemux86/tmp/deploy/images/qemux86/core-image-minimal-qemux86-20150804095542.rootfs.ext4]
