Hi all,

I've googled most of the day, but to no avail. How does one compile and
add to the image the daemon usbipd? Is there a bitbake file already for
this? The code is part of the kernel found in the kernel tree:


and is invoked from the KERNEL_SRC_PATH/tools directory by calling

make usb


PC $> cd <Linux_kernel_source_path>/tools
PC $> make <tool>

I would think that there is a preexisting recipe.
There isn't one that I've ever heard of, and the layerindex
( confirms that nothing registered
with it provides that recipe.

So if you need it, you'd have to create a recipe .. and submit it to
somewhere like meta-openembedded if appropriate.

Have a look at the perf recipe for one of the ways we build tools out
of the kernel source. Something similar will work in this case.
