Building for Pi2 on OpenEmbedded

May 30, 2017 — BarryK
Have just completed an x86 i586 build in OpenEmbedded, and imported the binary packages into woofQ. However, have put that one on the back-burner for now.

Have downloaded the layer for the Raspberry Pi:
https://layers.openembedded.org/layerindex/branch/master/layer/meta-raspberrypi/

Also for the Hardkernel Odroid boards:
https://layers.openembedded.org/layerindex/branch/master/layer/meta-odroid/

I know very little about how these Board Support Package (BSP) layers work. So, starting off slowly. Right now, doing a small build for the Pi2, just a basic CLI interface.

What I have done so far, with Quirky and Easy, is just extract the binary packages out of OE, to woofQ. However, I want to learn how the whole thing, right to an SD-card image, is created in OE.

Fascinating. I threw the full package selection as in the x86 build, left OE at it overnight.

In the morning, found that 'kodi' had failed. Sat here for a couple of hours, examining and googling, finally got it to compile.

Off she goes again, compiling the rest...
