This layer provides support for Microchip microprocessors (aka AT91)
====================================================================
For more information about the Microchip MPU product line see:

Supported SoCs / MACHINE names
==============================
Note that most of the machine names below, have a SD Card variant that can be
built by adding an "-sd" suffix to the machine name.
- SAMA5D2 product family / sama5d2-xplained, sama5d2-xplained-emmc, sama5d27-som1-ek-sd, sama5d2-ptc-ek, sama5d2-icp, sama5d27-wlsom1-ek-sd
- SAMA5D4 product family / sama5d4ek, sama5d4-xplained
- SAMA5D3 product family / sama5d3xek, sama5d3-xplained
- AT91SAM9x5 product family (AT91SAM9G15, AT91SAM9G25, AT91SAM9X25, AT91SAM9G35 and AT91SAM9X35) / at91sam9x5ek
- AT91SAM9RL / at91sam9rlek

Build procedure
===============
0/ Create a directory
mkdir my_dir
cd my_dir
1/ Clone yocto/poky git repository with the proper branch ready
git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky -b zeus
2/ Clone meta-openembedded git repository with the proper branch ready
git clone git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded -b zeus
3/ Clone meta-qt5 git repository with the proper branch ready
git clone git://code.qt.io/yocto/meta-qt5.git
cd meta-qt5
git checkout upstream/zeus
cd ..
4/ Clone meta-atmel layer with the proper branch ready
git clone git://github.com/linux4sam/meta-atmel.git -b zeus
5/ Enter the poky directory to configure the build system and start the build process
cd poky
6/ Initialize build directory
source oe-init-build-env build-microchip
7/ Add meta-atmel layer to bblayer configuration file
vim conf/bblayers.conf
# POKY_BBLAYERS_CONF_VERSION is increased each time build/conf/bblayers.conf
# changes incompatibly
POKY_BBLAYERS_CONF_VERSION = "2"
BBPATH = "${TOPDIR}"
BBFILES ?= ""
BSPDIR := "${@os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(d.getVar('FILE', True)) + '/../../..')}"
BBLAYERS ?= " \
${BSPDIR}/poky/meta \
${BSPDIR}/poky/meta-poky \
${BSPDIR}/poky/meta-yocto-bsp \
${BSPDIR}/meta-atmel \
${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-networking \
${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-python \
${BSPDIR}/meta-openembedded/meta-multimedia \
${BSPDIR}/meta-qt5 \
"
BBLAYERS_NON_REMOVABLE ?= " \
${BSPDIR}/poky/meta \
${BSPDIR}/poky/meta-poky \
"
8/ Edit local.conf to specify the machine, location of source archived, package type (rpm, deb or ipk)
Pick one MACHINE name from the "Supported SoCs / MACHINE names" chapter above
and edit the "local.conf" file. Here is an example:
vim conf/local.conf
[...]
MACHINE ??= "sama5d2-xplained"
[...]
DL_DIR ?= "your_download_directory_path"
[...]
PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"
[...]
USER_CLASSES ?= "buildstats image-mklibs"
To get better performance, use the "poky-atmel" distribution by also adding that
line:
DISTRO = "poky-atmel"
9/ Build core minimal image
bitbake core-image-minimal
10/ 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 = ""
11/ Build images
bitbake microchip-headless-image
Typical bitbake output

Known issues
============
This branch is under development and not fully tested. Some features may not work.
QTWebEngine build fails with error:
"khronos development headers appear to be missing (mesa/libegl1-mesa-dev)
QtWebEngine will not be built."
You can’t perform that action at this time.
