wrlinux setup

With this tool you can either create a new distribution builder platform project, or create a mirror that other projects can be based on.

In addition, you can use the tool to obtain information about available project configuration options.

The tool uses a layer index (such as, as specified in the bin/ file, to determine what layers are required to construct a distribution builder project.

The tool relies on 'repo' from the Android 'git-repo' project. It produces a repo style 'default.xml' file, and then calls repo to download all of the layer components necessary.

The tool also configures various sample files that are used by oe-init-build-env to construct your build directory.


For documentation, see the Wind River Knowledge Library:

It is suggested that you start with: The Wind River Linux Platform Development Quick Start.

When following the quick start and other examples, use:

branchName: WRLINUX_10_18_BASE
repoURL: git://<git mirror>/git/wrlinux-x


Basic setup/usage workflow:

The setup program is expected to have been cloned inside of a project directory, such as:

$ mkdir my-project
$ cd my-project
$ git clone --branch <branchName> <repoURL> wrlinux-x

Once cloned, simply run the (./wrlinux-x/ to get a list of options. The setup program will construct a new git repository in the current working directory. This repository is used to manage the output of the setup program.

You may re-run the setup program at any time to update/change the project settings. However, your build directory will not be touched. You will have to resync it with the updated project. (Specifically bblayers.conf and local.conf to the config/*.sample versions.)

To update your project, re-run the setup program with the same arguments. Note the original arguments are available in the generated README file.

Mirror workflow:

$ mkdir my-mirror
$ cd my-mirror
$ git clone --branch <branchName> <repoURL> wrlinux-x
$ ./wrlinux-x/ --all-layers --mirror

The above command will mirror all layers, including download layers into the current location, for the branch specified.

To update the mirror, re-run the command with the same arguments. To add additional branches to your mirror, change the branch in the wrlinux-x, and re-run the with the same arguments.

A user can reference this mirror by doing:

$ mkdir my-project
$ cd my-project
$ git clone --branch <branchName> <path_to_mirror>/wrlinux-x

and then run the wrlinux-x/ program as described above.
