Ion Mobility Yocto Manifest

Yocto repository to build and deploy a root filesystem image for Ion Mobility.


You must have all prerequisites for Yocto, plus the repo command.

TODO Determine prerequisites for Yocto.

You must also install Google repo, which can be as simple as:

$ mkdir -p ~/.bin
$ PATH="${HOME}/.bin:${PATH}"
$ curl > ~/.bin/repo
$ chmod a+rx ~/.bin/repo

Getting Started

  1. Clone the repository and sync it:
$ mkdir yocto
$ cd yocto
$ repo init -u ssh:// -b main -m ion-mobility-yocto-gatesgarth.xml
$ repo sync
  1. Enter the Yocto environment. This must be done every time you start to work on Yocto.
$ ./

The first time you do this, you will be prompted to accept the NXP EULA.

When you are in the environment, the string (yocto) is prefixed to your prompt.

  1. Build an image. This can be done by building any available image. For example, ion-demo-image:
$ bitbake ion-demo-image

The resulting image file in tmp/deploy/images/gridania-evt2-soc may be written to an SD card or otherwise inspected.
