Branch: dizzy


Dependencies
============
This Layer depends on :
- meta-openembedded
URI: git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded
URI: http://cgit.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded/
Branch: dizzy (tested with commit ID: 6413cdb66acf43059f94d0076ec9b8ad6a475b35)

Optionally:
- meta-qt5
URI: git://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5.git
URI: https://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5
Branch: master (tested with commit ID: 22c431e7a1fa525c75bf1fa48c82d01955001350)


Build procedure
===============

1/ Clone yocto/poky git repository
git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky

2/ Checkout dizzy branch
cd poky
git checkout origin/dizzy -b my_branch

3/ Clone meta-openembedded git repository
git clone git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded

4/ Checkout proper meta-openembedded branch
cd meta-openembedded
git checkout origin/dizzy -b my_branch
# come back to the "poky" directory for next steps
cd ..

5/ Clone meta-qt5 git repository
git clone git://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5.git

6/ Checkout proper meta-qt5 branch
cd meta-qt5
git checkout origin/master -b my_branch
# come back to the "poky" directory for next steps
cd ..

7/ Clone meta-atmel layer
git clone git://github.com/linux4sam/meta-atmel.git meta-atmel

8/ Checkout proper meta-atmel branch
cd meta-atmel
git checkout origin/dizzy -b my_branch
# come back to the "poky" directory for next steps
cd ..

9/ Initialize build directory
source oe-init-build-env build-atmel

10/ Add meta-atmel layer patch to bblayer configuration file
vim conf/bblayers.conf

# LAYER_CONF_VERSION is increased each time build/conf/bblayers.conf
# changes incompatibly
LCONF_VERSION = "6"

BBPATH = "${TOPDIR}"
BBFILES ?= ""

BSPDIR := "${@os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(d.getVar('FILE', True)) + '/../..')}"

BBLAYERS ?= " \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-atmel \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-qt5 \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-yocto \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-yocto-bsp \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-networking \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-python \
  ${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-ruby \
  "

11/ Edit local.conf to specify the machine, location of source archived, package type (rpm, deb or ipk)
vim conf/local.conf
[...]
MACHINE ??= "sama5d4ek"
[...]
DL_DIR ?= "your_download_directory_path"
[...]
PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"

Here are the machines that are supported:
MACHINE ??= "at91sam9rlek"
MACHINE ??= "at91sam9m10g45ek"
MACHINE ??= "at91sam9x5ek"
MACHINE ??= "sama5d3xek"
MACHINE ??= "sama5d3-xplained"
MACHINE ??= "sama5d4ek"
MACHINE ??= "sama5d4-xplained"

To get better performance, use the poky-atmel distribution by also adding that
line:
DISTRO = "poky-atmel"

12/ Build core minimal image
bitbake core-image-minimal

13/ We found that additional local.conf changes are needed for our QT demo
image. You can add these two lines at the end of the file:
vim conf/local.conf
[...]
LICENSE_FLAGS_WHITELIST += "commercial"
SYSVINIT_ENABLED_GETTYS = ""

14/ Build Atmel demo images
bitbake atmel-qt5-demo-image
