A tutorial to set up your environment and Download Source Code


The RDK-B code can be obtained from the CMF Gerrit instance using the repo commands below :

$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -m rdkb.xml -b rdkb-20170830
$ 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.

Note : The above commands illustrate how to access the specific CMF iteration (snapshot) RDK-B_20170830. Substitute the latest iteration currently available in RDK-B Releases page. If you want to get the very latest state of the code (i.e. current development), do not supply a branch, and master will be fetched:

$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -m rdkb.xml
$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle

The first command will download the manifest, while the other command will fetch and checkout all the relevant git trees. Now you have a complete folder structure ready to build the RDK-B OpenEmbedded distro. The Manifest file (manifest.xml or default.xml) defines which repositories the project uses and links to appropriate revisions of each git repository. After completing "repo init", manifest files will be downloaded in ".repo/manifests/" path.

For other details on how to set up your Environment refer to Getting Started with the Code

Build Source Code


Steps to build the Source code:
 
In order to build the source code, we need to follow two primary steps,
 
1. Source the environment setup file
2. Build the required image using bitbake
 
The build instructions are device specific (e.g Emulator, RaspberryPi) and we need to be careful in using the proper environment setup file. We will take example of raspberry-pi and emulator here for reference.

  2. ZheLiu,

    It seems to be an licence issue. I think you need to be an RDK licensee to access the source code

  3. Hi I trying to build the image for Rasspberry PI but a have an error :

    ERRORParseError at /home/epanciera/wk/rdkb-rpi-master/meta-raspberrypi/recipes-rdk/westeros/westeros-soc-rpi.bb:1: Could not include required file recipes-graphics/westeros/westeros.inc

    Could you help us?


    I m using the master branch  → repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -m rdkb.xml

    When I set the setupenviroment  (source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment) , I'm using the option 9 (meta-cmf-raspberrypi/conf/machine/raspberrypi-rdk-broadband.conf)

    This is the output when I try to do bitbake: 


    $ bitbake rdk-generic-broadband-image

  6. Alfredo Aparicio,


    At present,We are working with Morty branch.So requested to use the below command for generating the RDK-B Emulator image,

    repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -m rdkb.xml -b morty
