Post-baseline updates



Highlights since 20171228

  • Components updated:
    • breakpad_wrapper, crashupload, CcspCommonLibrary, CcspLMLite, CcspMoCA, CcspMtaAgent, CcspPandM, CcspPsm, CcspTr069Pa, CcspWifiAgent, PowerManager, TestAndDiagnostic, Utopia, Xconf, hal, halinterface, sysint, webui, rdkb/devices/raspberrypi/halrdkb/devices/rdkbemu/ccsp/rdkb.
  • Patches:
    • Separate patch files for the open-source OE layers are no longer maintained. Instead, from this iteration, mirrors of the OE layers used by RDK are maintained at CMF, containing rdk branches that contain the patches already applied. The RDK build scripts and recipes now all use these instead of the previous patches.
  • Community contributions: 

Getting the code

Note: The manifests repository is only available to RDK licensees.

$ mkdir rdkb
$ cd rdkb 
$ repo init -u -m rdkb.xml -b rdkb-20180123
$ 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-20180123 in the build sequence above specifies the branch to use. If you omit the -b rdkb-20180123 entirely, you will get the master (HEAD) of each component.
  • At any time, the community can build latest master by dropping the -b rdkb-20180123 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 for the emulator

$ source meta-cmf-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 documentation is available here:

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-20180123-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:
