Yocto: fast start

This document describes how to download, setup and build Yocto based system image. For faster downloads, git repositories will be cloned without history.

Image generation


git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky --depth 1 -b fido
cd poky
git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-ti --depth 1 -b fido
git clone https://github.com/chilisom/meta-chilisom.git


Create build directory and generate local config files:

TEMPLATECONF=meta-chilisom/conf source ./oe-init-build-env

Now it is time to review and change conf/local.conf file.


To build system image:

bitbake core-image-base

Rsults are in poky/build/tmp/deploy/images/<board name>/

SD Card preparation

How to create partitions, please refer to: Chiliboard/Arch_Linux and Chiliboard/Getting_started

Necessary files on 1st FAT bootable partition:

  • MLO
  • u-boot.img
  • uEnv.txt
  • zImage

On second ext4 partition, you have to unpack generated root filesystem:



  • /boot/zImage-am335x-chiliboard-nand256-ram256-lcd.dtb
