The Dora branch contains support for our latest kernel directly, so you can follow Daiane’s excellent instructions for how to build and simply replace dylan with dora in Step 1 (Download the Source Code).
We built an image over the weekend and have been testing a build of fsl-image-gui today. It’s performing quite well, and contains support for both GPU X acceleration and GStreamer video acceleration.
The steps to build were simple:
~/$ mkdir yocto && cd yocto ~/yocto$ repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b dora ~/yocto$ repo sync ~/yocto$ MACHINE=nitrogen6x . setup-environment build ~/yocto/build$ bitbake fsl-image-gui ... long time passes ~/yocto/build$ ls -lh tmp/deploy/images/nitrogen6x/ ... -rw-r--r-- 1 user group 996M Sep 28 14:55 fsl-image-gui-nitrogen6x-20130928181014.rootfs.sdcard ...
Installing to SD card is also very straightforward. Assuming your SD card shows up as /dev/sdc, you can use these commands to write it:
~/yocto/build$ sudo umount /dev/sdc* ~/yocto/build$ sudo dd if=tmp/deploy/images/nitrogen6x/fsl-image-gui-nitrogen6x-20130928181014.rootfs.sdcard of=/dev/sdc
To make things easy for you, we’ve uploaded an image to our Cloud storage site:
This image should be usable directly using dd under Linux as shown above, or by using Alex Page’s USB Image Creator under Windows.
Note that the Yocto build process generates a small partition for the root filesystem in partition 2, and you might want to use resize2fs to expand it to use the rest of your SD card.
