  2RDKB Emulator hal re-factoring      Emu   RDKB

Currently, we are hosting the Emulator hal source code in generic hal repo( i,e rdkb/components/opensource/ccsp/hal under the source-pc folder. So, it doesn't cause any impact on other targets). Getting the changes at rdk-next branch takes around 2 to 3 weeks after round tripping the comcast sprint, stable2 branches (Which is not ideally needed because the changes are in emulator HAL specific in source-pc)
So, hosting the repo in CMF will save the time to greater extend.

  • Added the updated RDKB emu hal source code in new repo
  • Updated all the hal bbappend 's in bsp-emulator layer
  • Removed the unwanted folders and moved all the remaining hal folders to source folder

Integrated SNMP module support in rpi platform

      R-PI   RDKB
  • SNMP Protocol Agent (PA) provides the solution for SNMP Protocol to access CCSP Data Model.
  • Externally, SNMP protocol agent works like a regular SNMP agent. It takes coming SNMP requests and sends back the corresponding results or errors.
  • Internally, SNMP protocol agent processes the SNMP requests and translates those into CCSP Messages. Those messages go on to CCSP Message Bus and come back with response messages. SNMP protocol agent processes the response messages and response to SNMP requests accordingly.
  • In order to translate between SNMP requests and CCSP Messages, SNMP protocol agent loads the XML files describing how MIB objects are mapped to Data Model objects.

    4Online / Offline status of connected devices on RDKB     R-Pi   RDK-B
  • In WebUI, connected Device > Devices > Connected clients status need to be updated properly.
  • If any new associated clients connected with our Gateway Device,that client information should be properly updated in WebUI under online status.
  • If any connected clients disconnects from our Gateway Device, that clients information's should be properly updated in WebUI under Offline status
  • For that, we have implemented the below api's,
  • update_wifi_inactive_AssociatedDeviceInfo()
  • wifi_getApInactiveAssociatedDeviceDiagnosticResult()
  • CosaDMLWiFi_Send_FullHostDetails_To_LMLite()

Known Issues and Limitations

Yocto-3.1 RDK generic media client image support in R-Pi:

  1. PREFERRED_VERSION of gstreamer1.0-libav is set to 1.14 to resolve aamp playback issues.
  2. The optimization level for netsrvmgr and tr69hostif packages are set to -O0 to fix the crash.
  3. mfrmgr.service is crashing for the latest build
  4. The triangle rendered by westeros_test app is distorted.
  5. rdkmediaplayer works with VID3 only.
  6. appmanager is getting displayed after booting up the image but the login prompt is not available in the background as usual.
  7. rmfApp prompt is not getting displayed after playing video using launch/play command. So we need to hard close the video using Ctrl + C combination.
  8. Sometimes the appmanager disappear from the screen after sometime. We can bring it back by pressing ctrl button.
  9. The fingerprint-dhcp-lease-file.patch is failing for dnsmasq_2.81 version due to code changes in lease.c file hence excluded the patch until the patch is verified.

Yocto-3.1 RDK Generic Hybrid Image on RPI:

  1. RMF App prompt is not getting displayed after playing video using launch/play command

Yocto-3.1 RDK Generic Camera Image in R-PI:

  1.  Ethernet connection ( USB Ethernet Adapter):
    •  Able to get 'Ethernet IP' but unable to ping any address like www.google.com due to this issue not able to validate RMS feature.
  2.  WiFi connection:
    •  After bootup unable to get the 'WiFi IP' address by default.
    • Once we restart the " wpa_supplicant.service" forcefully then we can able to get the 'WiFi IP'.
  3.  RDKC Media Streamer( RMS )
    • After bootup, RMS services are not running.
    • Everytime manually we need to run this  " rms-launcher.service" command to launch rms.

Yocto-3.1 RDK Generic Broadband Image in Turris-Omnia:

   For WebPA Support,

   In the below Get/Set parameters, able to set the value successfully, but retrieving the same 'value' set is failing. Wifi-HAL need to be updated in yocto_3.1 for this issue. 

  • Device.Users.User.1.X_CISCO_COM_Password
  • Device.WiFi.Radio.10000.Channel
