Getting the code

$ mkdir rdkb
$ cd rdkb
$ repo init -u -m rdkb.xml -b rdkb-20170508
$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle
  • The -m rdkb.xml in the build sequence above is important. If this is not specified, you will get an RDK-V tree by default.
  • The -b rdkb-20170508 in the build sequence above specifies the branch to use. If you omit the -b rdkb-20170508 entirely, you will get the master (HEAD) of each component.
  • At any time, the community can build latest master by dropping the -b rdkb-20170508 option in the repo init command.
  • We have verified that this iteration boots to a login prompt and that you can log in, and that you can connect with a web browser to the web admin page.

Building the emulator

$ source meta-cmf-rdkb-bsp-emulator/setup-environment (select qemux86broadband)
$ bitbake rdk-generic-broadband-image

The image path will be: build-qemux86broadband/tmp/deploy/images/qemux86broadband/rdk-generic-broadband-image-qemux86broadband.vmdk

To build TDK, follow the steps as for a normal build, above, but use the following bitbake command:

$ bitbake rdk-generic-broadband-tdk-image

The image path will be: build-qemux86broadband/tmp/deploy/images/qemux86broadband/rdk-generic-broadband-tdk-image-qemux86broadband.vmdk

TDK for RDK-B documentation is available:

Running the emulator

  1. Start VirtualBox.
  2. Click New -> Enter name -> Select type Linux -> Select version Other Linux (32 bit) -> Click Next
  3. Select Memory size - 512MB -> Click Next
  4. Select option Use an existing virtual hard drive -> Select the built image above -> Click Create
  5. Once the VM has been created, select the new image and click Settings -> Network -> Select Attached to: 'Bridged Adapter' -> Click Ok
  6. Click Start.This will bring up the emulator with the initial splash screen

Building for RaspberryPi

$ mkdir <workspace dir>
$ cd <workspace dir>
$ repo init –u -m rdkb.xml –b rdkb-20170508-rpi
$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle
$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment

Select option raspberrypi-rdk-broadband.conf

$ bitbake rdk-generic-broadband-image

Note. The kernel Image and root filesystem will be created under the ./tmp/deploy/images/raspberrypi-rdk-broadband folder

Documentation for RDK-B for RaspberryPi is available here:

Known Issues

  • TCL tests not run for RPI or Emulator, TCL scripts and script execution will be resumed once the scripts are stabilized.
  • RDKBEMU-436 - PAM Randomly the advance config scripts is causing the PAM process to crash or go to a deadlock state
    • Some of the advanced config scripts are causing the PAM process to deadlock or crash. A reboot is required to recover, this issue caused a regression in a number of tests.
  • TDK-355 - RDK-B TS_SNMP "no such object at this OID issue" failures due to snmp_subagent.service failing
    • snmp_subagent service is not running. Because of this the communication between ccsp-snmp-subagent and NET SNMP agent is broken and any SNMP scripts queries to the OIDs in range . fail
  • RDKBEMU-418: Ping to outside world not working with specific emulator Network configuration.
  • TDKB-29 - TS_SNMP_Get2.4SSIDWithDisabledXfinityWifi is causing the other SNMP scripts to fail. This test case is skipped in Emulator.
  • TDK-341 - RDK-B Emulator TS_PAM_IpIfMaxMTUSize fails on CMF image
    • RDKBEMU-406 raised on emulator
  • TDK-342 - RDK-B Emulator SNMP Tests - No Such Instance currently exists at this OID
    • TS_SNMP_Get2.4SSIDWithDisabledXfinityWifi tests fails in automated run but passes in manual run under investigation
  • TDK-344 - RDK-B Emulator TS_TAD traceroute test failures on CMF image
    • TS_TAD_Traceroute test fail in CMF evironement due to some security restrictions with test setup
  • TDK-348 - TDK-B RPI RDK Logger Tests Failiing
  • RPI-2 - Value of Device.WiFi.Radio.2.AutoChannelEnable is getting changed to "false" when Device.WiFi.Radio.2.X_CISCO_COM_ApplySetting is applie
  • RPI-7 - Randomly observing boot up issue in RaspberryPI broadband
  • RPI-19 - TFTP log transfer is not happening with the erouter0 interface
  • RPI-21 - DNS Client Allows to set value for Device.DNS.Client.Server.1.DNSServer even if the Device.DNS.Client.Server.1.Type is not Static
  • RPI-22 - Setting the security mode as WPAWPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) is making the WIFI client to connect to the SSID with the Authentication Mode as "WPA-Personal" instead of "WPA2-Personal"
