This is the summary page that describes CMF quarterly release rdkb-2021q3-dunfell, based on the new branch rdk-next and dunfell oe layers. Below are links to the relevant documents.

Note: The master branch has been deprecated in select community repositories and rdk-next is now the lead development branch.

Note: The latest rdkb quarterly release addresses licensing issues so users are advised to move to the latest iteration.

Note: For the Gerrit links, you need to log in before you will be able to see the contents.

Patches

Separate patch files for the open-source OE layers are no longer maintained. Instead, 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.

Getting the code

Note:

  • The manifests repository is only available to RDK licensees.
  • Opensource versions of the RDKB manifests are available from the rdkcmf/manifests repository rdkb-2021q3-dunfell branch 
mkdir <workspace dir>

cd <workspace dir>

repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/rdkcmf/manifests -m <manifest.xml> -b rdkb-2021q3-dunfell

repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle 
  • The -m <manifest.xml> in the sequence above is important. If this is not specified, you will get an RDK-V tree by default.
    • For RPI builds use manifest: rdkb-extsrc.xml

      repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/rdkcmf/manifests -m rdkb-extsrc.xml -b rdkb-2021q3-dunfell
    • For Turris  builds use manifest: rdkb-turris-extsrc.xml

      repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/rdkcmf/manifests -m rdkb-turris-extsrc.xml -b rdkb-2021q3-dunfell
  • The -b rdkb-2021q3-dunfell in the build sequence above specifies the branch to use.
  • If you omit the -b rdkb-2021q3-dunfell entirely, you will get the HEAD of each component
