Getting the code

$ mkdir rdkb
$ cd rdkb
$ repo init -u -m rdkb.xml -b rdkb-2017q2
$ 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-2017q2 in the build sequence above specifies the branch to use. If you omit the -b rdkb-2017q2 entirely, you will get the master (HEAD) of each component.
  • At any time, the community can build latest master by dropping the -b rdkb-2017q2 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 the emulator

$ source meta-cmf-rdkb-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 for RDK-B documentation is available:

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-2017q2-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:
