odroidc1: use boot part for kernel and config
Latest commit be306bd Jan 5, 2016

This README file contains information on building the meta-amlogic BSP layer, and booting the images contained in the /binary directory. Please see the corresponding sections below for details.


This layer depends on:

URI: git://
layers: poky
branch: fido


layers: meta-openembedded
branch: fido

How to use it:

  1. source poky/oe-init-build-env build/wetekplay
  2. Add needed layer to bblayers.conf:
    • meta-amlogic
    • (meta-openembedded)
  3. Set MACHINE to "wetekplay"/"odroidc1" in local.conf
  4. bitbake core-image-base
  5. dd to a SD card the generated sdimg file
  6. Boot your Device.

  1. Activating the Framebuffer

  2. Config tweaks

  3. Booting the images in /binary

  4. Activating the Framebuffer ========================================

To enable the Framebuffer the layer meta-openembedded is required. This is due to the fact that this layer contains the framebuffer tools.

Add fb to MACHINE_FEATURES in conf/local.conf.

MACHINE_FEATURES_prepend = "fb"
  1. Config Tweaks ================

It is recommended to add/change the following config options to conf/local.conf

Enable ipk/opk Pacakage Managment. This is a lightweight package Manager

PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"

Enable SSH Server and add Package Managment to the image

EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "debug-tweaks package-management ssh-server-dropbear"
  1. Booting the images in /binary =================================

This BSP contains bootable live images, which can be used to directly boot Yocto off of a SD-Card drive.

Under Linux, insert a SD-Card drive. Assuming the SD-Card drive takes device /dev/sdf, use dd to copy the live image to it. For example:

# dd if=core-image-base-wetekplay-20101207053738.hddimg of=/dev/sdf
# sync
# eject /dev/sdf

This should give you a bootable SD-Card device. Insert the device into a bootable USB socket on the target, and power on. This should result in a system booted to the Sato graphical desktop.

If you want a terminal, use the arrows at the top of the UI to move to different pages of available applications, one of which is named 'Terminal'. Clicking that should give you a root terminal.

If you want to ssh into the system, you can use the root terminal to ifconfig the IP address and use that to ssh in. The root password is empty, so to log in type 'root' for the user name and hit 'Enter' at the Password prompt: and you should be in.
