meta-printing layer for openembedded

This README file contains information on the contents and use of the meta-printing layer for openembedded.

Please see the corresponding sections below for details.


This layer depends on either:

URI: git://
branch: master or krogoth

URI: git://
layers: meta, meta-python
branch: master or krogoth

plus a BSP layer of your choice, eg, meta-ti:

URI: git://
layer: meta-ti
branch: master


URI: git://
layers: meta, meta-yocto-bsp
branch: master or krogoth

layers: meta, meta-python
branch: master or krogoth


Please submit any patches against the meta-printing layer by using the github pull-request feature. Fork the repo, make a branch, do the work, pull from upstream, create the pull request, yada-yada.

How to Use this Layer

I. Adding the meta-printing layer to your build

In order to use this layer, you need to make the build system aware of it. Follow the normal setup instructions for your BSP layer or Yocto reference build, either by manually cloning the required layers or by using a manifest tool such as vct-beagleboard-bsp-platform or the FSL community BSP manifest.

Assuming the meta-printing layer exists at the top-level of your yocto build tree, you can add it to the build system by adding the location of the meta-printing layer to bblayers.conf, along with any other layers needed, e.g.:

  /path/to/yocto/meta \
  /path/to/yocto/meta-poky \
  /path/to/yocto/meta-yocto-bsp \
  /path/to/yocto/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
  /path/to/yocto/meta-openembedded/meta-python \
  /path/to/yocto/meta-printing \

If you need networking support, also add meta-openembedded/meta-networking to the above.

II. Misc

Newer kernel recipes:

For a few recent beaglebone, socfpga, imx6, or mips octeon kernels add the meta-small-arm mini-bsp layer and leave the above defaults as-is.
