Monkey + Yocto Project

This repository contains the official recipes to build Monkey on Yocto Project.

Getting Started

The following instructions assumes that your are building Yocto images from scratch using the Poky tool, the first step is to get a copy of the Monkey-Yocto repository in your local computer:

$ git clone

then copy the monkey-yocto/monkey directory into your meta/recipes-extended directory path:

$ cp -r monkey-yocto/monkey poky/meta/recipes-extended/

make sure you are using the right Poky path

Once there, go into the build/ directory and make a test building Monkey:

$ cd poky/build/
$ bitbake monkey

If it built fine, you should see an output similar to this:

Build Configuration:
BB_VERSION        = "1.22.0"
BUILD_SYS         = "x86_64-linux"
NATIVELSBSTRING   = "Ubuntu-14.04"
TARGET_SYS        = "i586-poky-linux"
MACHINE           = "qemux86"
DISTRO            = "poky"
TUNE_FEATURES     = "m32 i586"
TARGET_FPU        = ""
meta-yocto-bsp    = "monkey-daisy:98ad3cb2c0f5975a0df4cebc06775aaae657700d"

Add Monkey to your Yocto Image

As any other extra package for your Image, the Build system needs to be aware that you want to include Monkey. For that purpose edit your build/conf/local.conf configuration file and add the following line at bottom:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " monkey"

That line tells the Build system to include monkey package when creating the final image. If for some reason the variable already exists, just append the monkey package name at the end, e.g:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " package1 package2 monkey"

The next time you build your image, Monkey will be packaged into it.
