Yocto Project Aligns Technology with OpenEmbedded, Gains Partners

Osier-mixon, Jeffrey <jeffrey.osier-mixon@...>

Good morning,

Today is an important day for the Yocto Project for two reasons.

First, the Yocto Project is aligning with the OpenEmbedded project – future releases of the Yocto Project will contain the new OpenEmbedded oe-core set of recipes as a base. You can read more about this on the OpenEmbedded Core page. 


Second, in addition to OpenEmbedded, over a dozen organizations have chosen to publicly announce their participation in the Yocto Project, including semiconductor manufacturers, embedded Linux providers, and professional organizations, and several of these have also joined the Yocto steering group.  Welcome to the Yocto Project!

Laverne 4.0.1 Release

David Stewart

Reposting Elizabeth's announcement of the 4.0.1 point release of Laverne.

-----Original Message-----
From: poky-bounces@... [mailto:poky-bounces@...] On Behalf Of Elizabeth Flanagan

We are pleased to announce the first bug-fix release of Poky Laverne,
4.0.1. This release is available at:

This release fixes issues with Poky Laverne on systems running
Fedora 14 and Opensuse 11.3, fixes issues with the poky-qemu script, and
fixes several other bugs. For a full list of bug fixes and known issues,
please see the Laverne 4.0.1 Errata at the bottom of this email.

Thanks to everyone who helped with reporting and fixing bugs!

Laverne 4.0.1 Errata
Name: Laverne
Version: 4.0.1
MD5 Sum: 0564df3a756c7ccdf2b34e980e6f56d8
Tagged Rev: 45526f5ecfd7fec22ce8022b46c311e77ee0fa9f
Build Rev: fd7a07b3a2153826bedda2ef76b9a33ab2791680
Build Date: Jan 26 2011


* Make 3.82, as shipped with Fedora 14, included parser bug fixes
that resulted in a much stricter parser. As a result, the Makefiles
could not be parsed for many of the software versions shipped with
Laverne. The Makefiles in the following recipes were fixed:

o eglibc
o busybox
o procps
o linux-libc-headers
o gstreamer
o gst-plugins
o libowl-av
o owl-video-widget
o dates
o contacts
o web-webkit

* The ability to build openssl-native on a system that has SELINUX
enabled was restored. (We disabled the execstack flag at compile time.)

* A host-intrusion issue caused by a failure in QEMU to find zlib
headers during configure was fixed. The issue was causing qemu-native to
use the system zlib if it was present. If the system zlib was not
present the build would fail.

* Stability and usability enhancements, which included handling
relative filesystem paths, were made to poky-qemu scripts.

* The run-time remapping of package names when adding extra packages
to an image via the IMAGE_INSTALL mechanism were fixed.

* The configure test in quilt for GNU patch was fixed to that it
correctly detects the version.

Known Issues

* The mpc3815e-rbd and routerstationpro machines were untested and
not a part of the official Laverne 4.0 release. These machines are still
unusable for this Laverne 4.0.1 release.
o mpx3815e-rdb will not boot due to a kernel/uboot issue Bug #685
o routerstation will not boot (by default) due to incorrect boot
parameters Bug #681
o routerstationpro debug messages related to the ethernet driver
print during boot Bug #679

* Shutdown/poweroff on qemuarm does not cleanly halt the virtual
machine. To workaround this issue use the reboot command. Using this
command avoids a "power-cycle" and instead cleanly shuts down the VM Bug

* Two "Connection Manager" icons appear in the Sato UI. This
duplication has been fixed in master. Note that you can use either icon
to launch the connectivity UI. Bug #683

* The on-screen keyboard incorrectly launches in the qemumips
machine. This issue is due to a mis-configured formfactor file Bug #682

Announcing new resources: demo video and Getting Started

David Stewart

We are pleased to announce some new resources on the Yocto Project.

When you build a custom Linux distribution for your device using the Yocto Project, you can also build an Application Development Toolkit (ADT) which corresponds to that distribution. The toolkit also comes with an Eclipse IDE plug-in.

Sometimes it helps to have a little demo of how the ADT works to get you started

Jessica Zhang, the ADT maintainer did a five minute demo screen cast of how to get the Eclipse plug-in working. You can view this video at and there is a link in the Resources section of the Yocto Project website ( along with other useful resources. Thanks Jessica for contributing this!

We also made some enhancements to our "Getting Started" page, to make a couple of things clearer:

* We now have a "contact us" link to send mail to the project organizers without using the public list.

* We also added a bunch of ideas on this page of how to contribute to the project. We hope you find it useful.

You can find this on

Thank you again for your contributions to the project. Code is of course always really welcome as a contribution, and we also welcome informational pieces like Jessica's video.

Announcing Yocto Project 1.0 roadmap and working schedule

David Stewart

The Yocto Project is pleased to announce some enhancements to our planning documents to add visibility and transparency. In general, we are using the Planning page on the project wiki to collaborate on details.

1. Yocto Project Roadmap - we added a high-level roadmap document which gives a bullet-level list of features which are planned for future releases. In particular, the 1.0 release (planned for April) has frozen content, and is listed in some detail here.

2. Yocto Project 1.0 Schedule - Our normal methodology for development includes managing progress through this page. We did this throughout the 0.9 development cycle and are doing it today for 1.0. By monitoring this page and the git master you should be able to see when functionality comes online and any comments about it.

3. Yocto Features - we collect requested features through a number of methods - bugzilla is a prime method, but we also try to solicit feature requests at many opportunities. This file is where we collect requests. Then the maintainers work with the architect to prioritize and size the features, again using this file. Usually this process occurs during the last milestone of the previous release, about four weeks before the release date.

4. Development methodology - We talked about a number of things we wanted to do in a really good open source project when we first started working together. Then as time went on and we got some experience, we honed this methodology to something which seems to be working well for the project. Now as a public project, we want to open this up and improve on it. There are a few notes here just so you can decode the Schedule file. More information will come as we factor it in.

COMING SOON: We have a couple of demo videos for how to use the Yocto Project Eclipse plug-in. Will post these over to YouTube and post links on, hopefully this week.
