Defining group of machines

Oliver Westermann



We’ve a product group with different devices, each having their machine-conf, eg




Device_b_mini <- Upcoming

Device_c <- Upcoming


Since device_a and device_a_mini share a lot of code, for them we use one of the machine overrides, describing the processor family, so I use RDEPENDS_${PN}_append_device_a if I just need it for device_a and RDEPENDS_${PN}_append_am57x for device_a and device_a_mini.


Now I’m in the situation that device_c will use the same CPU as device b, so I need something like a “group” of devices for family b.


How can I define a MACHINE_GROUP_device_b_group = “device_b device_b_mini” so I can do

RDEPENDS_${PN}_append_device_b_group or do_install_append_device_b_group()?


Best regards, Olli
