We (Wind River) already drop the x11 DF from some of our distros and
we'd likely do the same for wayland and opengl so while this seems
like the wrong change for headless systems it is one we could deal with.
Adding wayland seems Ok but forcing the opengl support doesn't seems a
good default. Especially because we just also ensure software
rendering is also wrong (slow or not).

Re: AppArmor with BusyBox

Konstantin Aladyshev <aladyshev22@...>
 

I've added `IMAGE_INSTALL += "findutils"` to my `conf/local.conf`
file, and it seems like it was enough. There weren't any build
conflicts.

Should the AppArmor recipe be upgraded in some way to indicate that it
needs a full-featured findutils package instead of a busybox one?

Best regards,
Konstantin Aladyshev

Randy,


We (Wind River) already drop the x11 DF from some of our distros and
we'd likely do the same for wayland and opengl so while this seems
like the wrong change for headless systems it is one we could deal with.

There was some discussion about this topic on the tech call today and
people were concerned about BSP support for opengl since the software
rendering in mesa is horridly slow.
Thanks for bring this issue up.


Kevin, Bryan,
Can you comment if you think we'd have any show-stopper problems
with opengl support for BSPs?
Err, are they going to check my BSP ; )


Joshua said that weston has a usable RDP (remote desktop backend) but
I'm not sure how usable it is especially for single application sharing.
This contrasts with x11 where you can use X11 forwarding over
ssh trivially for whole desktops or an application.

In conclusion, I see the value in pushing yocto forward but we may need
to wait for agreement from BSP folks so let's see what they say.
The layer index  BSP list is long so waiting for feedback may not be
practical.  I think it may be  more of an awareness and how can the BSP
maintainers work around the default if there are issues rather than 
stopping this progress  in core.

I personal would rather see my layer break so that I will be forced to
take action.  I see this as being  no different than when we update
u-boot or the kernel.

Most yocto layers have not adopted the tagging perhaps because they
weren't aware of it so that's why I'm writing this email. Tagging
will make it easy to find the first commit for a specific release
independent of what the branching policy of a layer is. Layer
maintainers sometimes create the release branch in advance of
when oe-core is released and by adding the tag, it would make it
clear when the layer considers content to be officially released.
So the official starting point is what you are looking for? is there any
expectation to tag for dot release alignment?

Of course it's up to users to decide if they are going to follow
the HEAD of a branch or, for some reason, stick with a tagged commit
or private branch off that commit.
What's more important, tag or branch? Many layers hosted on git.yp.org
don't have the 'hardknott' branch.  If the discipline to create a new
branch is not their, I have a hard time believing 'tagging' will be high
on their list.


Are there any concerns about attempting to do this for yocto-3.3

Tagging in Poky has a meaning of a fully QA set of sources at a given
point of time.  It may be interpreted by users that if a tag showed up
in other layers, those layers are also fully tested.



Should we make it a requirement for yocto compliance?
I think you mean 'Yocto Compatible'.  Branching is already a requirement
IIRC as the program is against a specific branch.

-armin

Should it be a feature tested by the yocto compliance script?

Wait a moment, I am not sure I understand the argument about software rendering. Can you please elaborate?

What is the scenario where enabling opengl would regress from something hw-accelerated to software rendering?

Re: Can layer maintainers add yocto-X.Y tags for yocto-3.3 and later?

Claude Bing
 

This would be a helpful addition for us when upgrading between named
Yocto releases. Normally, when we are ready to upgrade, we checkout the
HEAD for the named branch and try to get everything working together.

Having a tagged commit for a version would (hopefully) help ensure that
all of the layers are in the same state as when it went through QA
testing. If we are upgrading at some arbitrary point after the release
was made, some layers could have additional commits that may require
changes which have not yet made it into the dependent layers.

Claude Bing

Yocto Project Status WW17`21

Stephen Jolley
 

Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M1

Next Deadline: 7th June 2021 YP 3.4 M1 build

 

Next Team Meetings:

 

Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.1.7 was released.
  • Patches are now flowing into master for 3.4 for M1 which is now undergoing active development.
  • We added automated yocto-check-layer testing to the YP autobuilder for key project layers which include meta-openembedded and meta-virtualization as well as member layers. The aim is to ensure key project layers interoperate well with each other and we’d like to thank the layer maintainers who’ve helped ensure these layers started passing tests.
  • Libseccomp has moved to OE-Core due to its widespread use and becoming a hard requirement for some software. As such its now in the default DISTRO_FEATURES.
  • There is a potentially controversial proposal to add opengl to the default DISTRO_FEATURES as part of the move to wayland rather than X11 Xserver based systems which people may wish to review carefully.
  • Elections for the two OE positions on the YP TSC are ongoing on the openembedded-members list. Please contact the OE board if you are not a member but would like to be.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and are now at a record high level. You  can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT

We are working to identify the load pattern on the infrastructure that seems to trigger these.

looking for a bit more info on licensing certain recipe files

Robert P. J. Day
 

for the first time, i'm digging around in the docs for how to
properly license various types of recipes, so a couple simple
questions to start with, at least so i can make a first pass of
cleaning up some content in front of me.

as we established recently, packagegroup files need no licensing,
the obvious observation being that they represent the collection of
licenses that comprise them. however, i notice that the
packagegroup.bbclass file does indeed define a default license:

LICENSE ?= "MIT"

so not only does a packagegroup have a default (MIT) license, but it's
conditional suggesting one could give it a different license. what
other licenses would make sense for a packagegroup? I'm sticking with
the default that packagegroup recipe files need no LICENSE assignment,
but now i'm curious as to what other options there are (or perhaps
that that default assignment in packagegroup.bbclass is obsolete).

the same sort of question can be asked about image files, including
the generic OE core-image*.bb recipe files. of all those current
core-image files:

core-image-base.bb
core-image-minimal.bb
core-image-minimal-dev.bb
core-image-minimal-initramfs.bb
core-image-minimal-mtdutils.bb
core-image-tiny-initramfs.bb

fail into two camps.

the first sets a license, then inherits core-image:

LICENSE = "MIT"
inherit core-image

the second type simply "require"s one of the other recipe files so it
has no need to set its own license, as in core-image-minimal-dev.bb:

require core-image-minimal.bb

similar to packagegroups, does a core-image recipe really need a
separate LICENSE setting, or could that be added to core-image.bbclass
to centralize it (if it's even needed at all)?

finally, WRT .bbappend files, the original recipes will have their
own licenses and if the .bbappend file is doing nothing but adding
some configuration (you know, PACKAGECONFIG, EXTRA_OEMAKE, that sort
of thing), then there should be no need for licensing in the bbappend
file. does all this sound reasonable so far?

Re: running application in user mode instead of root #yocto

Alessandro Tagliapietra
 

I'm new to yocto as well but what we do is in our own custom image:

inherit extrausers
EXTRA_USERS_PARAMS = " useradd nodered"

and then since we use systemd we've created our own service file that includes:

User=nodered

in the [service] block definition, so the executable is run using that user instead of root.

Extrausers docs are https://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/current/mega-manual/mega-manual.html#ref-classes-extrausers

An alternative you might look at is the useradd class https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta-skeleton/recipes-skeleton/useradd/useradd-example.bb which probably lets you set the users in your own recipe instead at image level


Re: running application in user mode instead of root #yocto

Yann Dirson
 

Hello,

I am trying to run my application in less privilege mode instead of root user.
As i am new to Yocto build could you please some one suggest on how to configure my build environment to get user and run
my application with the user privileges at startup.
You may be interested in ROOTLESS_X="1", to open a non-priviledged X11 session.


Regards,
Vijay
