libcamera compiled in OpenEmbedded

October 30, 2021 — BarryK

I have compiled 'libcamera' in OpenEmbedded, as well as these extra python modules:

libcamera          202002+gitAUTOINC+a8be6e94e7
python3-jinja2 2.11.3
python3-markupsafe 1.1.1
python3-pyyaml 5.3.1

It is annoying: the latest version of libcamera requires 'meson' 0.55.0 to compile, whereas OE Dunfell release only has 0.53.0, as reported here:

It's annoying because one of the reasons developers are moving away from autools to build systems like meson, is because of version breakage.

Anyway, I can bump libcamera version later. I want it, any version, right now, as it is an optional dependency for 'pipewire'.

Those python modules are only needed for compiling libcamera, so I will put them in the 'devx' SFS, in case want to compile libcamera in a running EasyOS.
