The RDK emulator is an x86 based implementation of the RDK software stack. It is primarily targeted towards the RDK development community (integrators, component developers and application developers) that attempts to simplify the process of working with the RDK software stack without the need for a reference hardware platform. As RDK emulator runs on desktop computers, applications can be tested and debugged before trying to deploy them to real devices.

  1. Hi, I was following the instructions in Emulator for Developers for RDK-B. When I tried to build the ccsp-cr (slide 37 - Use Case: Building a CCSP Component), I faced this problem -> It seems it is missing a library or the library is with an different version. Am I missing anything? Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Z-Thiago Navarro

      Could you please let us know if you are trying to build the component in a Ubuntu PC ? The terminal looks like you are trying to compile code in a Emulator terminal

      1. Thank you for the reply. You are right. I was trying to build in the Emulador, as described in slide 37 - Use Case: Building a CCSP Component Emulator for Developers guide. 

        1. Hi Rajkumar Narayanan could you please support here? Z-Thiago Navarro is trying to build an emulator component from within the emulator itself

          Z-Thiago Navarro - it is quite easy to build a component from the actual build system in a PC than from within emulator. Are you doing the build within the emulator for specific reasons or just following the build steps as in the webinar?

          1. Ok! Thank you for the reply! Only following the build steps as in the webinar. It is not my priority. If you could prioritize this issue Re: Adding a New Test Component, I would be appreciate! (big grin)

  2. Is there a ready to download prebuilt image for Virtualbox or the likes?  Cannot seem to find it here on Wiki.

  3. Z-Romas Kriauciukas , Downloadable images are available in but emulator images are no longer maintained.
