Host Setup

The OpenEmbedded build system should be able to run on any modern distribution with the following versions for Git, tar, and Python.


  • Git 1.8.3.1 or greater.

  • tar 1.24 or greater.

  • Python 2.7.3 or greater excluding Python 3.x, which is not supported

Note: You should also have about 50 Gbytes of free disk space for building images.


Ubuntu and Debian

The essential packages you need for a supported Ubuntu or Debian distribution are shown in the following command

$ sudo apt-get install make gcc g++ diffstat texinfo chrpath gcc-multilib git gawk build-essential autoconf libtool libncurses-dev gettext gperf lib32z1 libc6-i386 g++-multilib python-git


Building

In order to use Yocto build system, the repo tool must be properly installed on the machine.


Repo setup

In order to install Repo make sure you have a /bin directory in your home directory and that it is included in your path

$ mkdir ~/bin

$ PATH=~/bin:$PATH

Download the repo tool and ensure that it is executable

$ curl http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo

$ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo


Note: it is also recommended to put credentials in .netrc when interacting with repo.

A sample .netrc file is illustrated below


machine code.rdkcentral.com

login YOUR_USERNAME

password YOUR_PASSWORD


Initilaizing the Build Environment

To build the image, follow below instructions

$ mkdir <workspace dir>

$ cd <workspace dir>

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

$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle


To build image with default compositor

$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment <select option raspberrypi-rdk-mc.conf>

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-image


To build image with westeros compositor

$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment <select option raspberrypi-rdk-mc-westeros.conf>

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-westeros-wpe-image


#To build RDK-DEV-1904 image follow the below build procedure

$ mkdir <workspace dir>

$ cd <workspace dir>

for Non-ASP:
$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -b rdk-dev-1904 -m rdkv-extsrc.xml

for ASP:

$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -b rdk-dev-1904 -m rdkv-asp-extsrc.xml

$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle

#To build rdk-next image follow the below build procedure

$ mkdir <workspace dir>

$ cd <workspace dir>

for Non-ASP:
$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -b rdk-next -m rdkv-extsrc.xml

for ASP:

$ repo init -u https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests -b rdk-next -m rdkv-asp-extsrc.xml

$ repo sync -j4 --no-clone-bundle

To build image with default compositor

$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment <select option raspberrypi-rdk-mc.conf>

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-image

for TDK-image

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-wpe-tdk-image

To build image with westeros compositor

$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment <select option raspberrypi-rdk-mc-westeros.conf>

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-westeros-wpe-image

for TDK-image

$ bitbake rdk-generic-mediaclient-westeros-wpe-tdk-image


Note: The Kernel image and root filesystem will be created under ./ build-raspberrypi-rdkmc/tmp/deploy/images/raspberrypi-rdk-mc folder
