A few of the 32-bit meta-intel BSPs need the boot-live config turned on
in order boot from iso images. This patchset does that for crownbay,
emenlow, fishriver, and fri2.

Tested on crownbay.
merged and out in the kernel repo. SRCREV update is arriving
shortly to an inbox near you.

Minutes: Yocto Technical Team Meeting - (Tuesday, October 04, 2011 8:00 AM-9:00 AM (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada))

Liu, Song <song.liu@...>
 

Attendees:
 Saul, Darren, Tom, Matthew, Jessica, Scott, Richard, Josh, Jeff, Beth, Mark, Dave, Song
 
Agenda
 
* Opens collection - 5 min (Song)
* Yocto 1.1 M4 status review and issues - 15 min (team) https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_Project_v1.1_Release_Criteria#Milestone_
- All release criteria are ready or on track for the release except waiting for QA to start testing on RC4.
- Tom found one BSP problem over the weekend, already have patch. Tom and Richard will investigate. If it's not happening on autobuilder, then it may not be a problem. Tom will follow up.
- 24 patches upstreamed last quarter
- Document on track, URL questions.
- Build status (Beth):
. Everything seems green so far, we are in a good position for RC4. Nothing is blocking our RC4 build at this point.
. Richard has taken all patches to the Edison branch.
. Multi-lib is a weak area, need more stress testing, need help from the team since Richard may not have enough time for this.
- Release schedule and contingency plan:
. We will start RC4 this Wednesday, should have RC4 this Thursday. QA team will be back this Saturday (Beijing time) to start testing on RC4. (If RC4 goes bad, we will have RC5 in the following week)
* Opens - 10 min
. Grub (Saul/Darren): install have grub 2 installed, but it has a .list file in grub 1 format. This happens only on n450. It's good to see Atom-PC since they are similar. Saul will redo the build for these 2. worst case use grub 1. Darren will try to debug, we at least need to understand the root cause of this. Saul will help Darren on this.
. State Cache on autobuilder, (Matthew): where I can look at the information about state cache? Would like to compare with what Matthew is doing at Freescale. Changing directories/machines, wondering if Yocto team has the same thing. Is there other machines using cache published by the master machines? (RP)Different machines share the same state cache. We are not going back to check duplication. Follow up email reusing email. Matthew is really interested in what we are doing for protecting cache. The cache is really important for Matthew's work at Freescale. (RP) We have 1.2 features related to shared state.
. URL (Scott): Looking for a response to his email. RP is good with the change.

* Weekly team sharing (30 min)
Mark: last week attended the ELC conference on the east coast. Had a presentation on Yocto introduction. 120 people showed up, very well received. 400-500 people in the conference.
Jeff: Nothing today
Josh: working on the same thing as last week, video, HOB.
Richard: doing patch review, 1.2 feature list, migrating them into bugzilla, sort through wiki page for 1.2.
Scott: last week mostly manuals. First path multi-lib section, implemented RP's changes on that. BSP manual, ADT manual. As many examples as I can. This Wednesday send pull request for docs
Jessica: working on internal Intel tools, finalize some loose items. Starting some research for 1.2 release features for ADT and Eclipse plug-in.
Matthew: shared state, already covered in the open.
Tom: Same thing as last week, Meta-intel BSPs. have the patch for ISO problem. Doc, BSP review will continue.
Darren: mostly working on minimal image size and boot time. Putting together the tiny image layer. But build untested. This week first fix the Grub issue, continue on the tiny image layer.
Saul: Working on the release 1.1. Will help Tom and Darren with Grub things. Complete the release this week.


Re: Yocto webbrowser ?

ya knygar <knygar@...>
 

Hi,

but why "webkit-web-browser" and not some gecko build? Isn't
're-branding' of mobile firefox would not be easier than building a
powerful stand-alone mobile webkit browser? Isn't the Mozilla's work
more important than supporting webkit now, at all?

The gecko's memory consumption has been stretched for the mobiles,
adding the UX efforts, extensions, and that Firefox Mobile is almost
the only floss mobile browser, i can't understand why not to try with
it now.

You'll need to customise an image to include the web browser:

2) If the Web-browser build succeeds, how can I install this on the

Alternatively you can scp the built package (probably
build/tmp/deploy/rpm/ARCH/packagename if you're using the default

management tools.

It does, are you asking this question because you've built an image that
isn't producing sound?

If so which version have you built and which revision is the target
board?

We did have a fix 4 days ago for audio on the beagleboard:
http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/poky/commit/?id=b0403ff4cbcc6d472c69d44106dff551374076b6

Do you have this change in the version you're building from?

Yocto webbrowser ?

Noel_V
 


Hi all,

I've been building the current-release of yocto (which succeeds) [ sato-qemu-arm build]


1) At this time I would like to 'include' the web-browser (webkit-web-browser)  into this build but I can not find any doc's on how to do this?

Any pointers ?

2) If the Web-browser build succeeds, how can I install this on the target ?

Yes, jasperforest works. So should romley, since like jasperforest,
it's derived from common-pc-64. I'm guessing if you updated your kernel
SRCREVs, it would also work.

Yocto Project 1.2 features planning session at ELCE

Jeff Osier-Mixon <jefro@...>
 

The Yocto Project invites you to participate in a planning session for the 1.2 release. This meeting will take place on Saturday, 29 October, after the Embedded Linux Conference Europe in Prague, CZ. Time and location are yet to be determined, but it is highly likely that the meeting will be from 9am to 12pm in the Clarion Congress hotel, Prague.

If you will be in Prague following ELCE, please consider joining us for a discussion about upcoming features in the Yocto Project.  For more information, keep an eye on the Yocto Project wiki page at https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_1.2_Features_ELCE.  

A working page about 1.2 features is on the Yocto Project wiki at https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Yocto_1.2_Features. Version 1.2 is currently scheduled to be released in April, 2012.

Hope to see you there

We have a couple options on how to fix this.

1) Set PREFERRED_PROVIDER_grub="0.97" in all 32b x86 machine configs

3) Some alternate approach which would be the equivalent of
DEFAULT_PREFERENCE, but only for meta-yocto BSPs or the poky

Given the time frame, I'd prefer to agree on the approach before writing
and testing patches. Preferences?
I thought I'd been assured grub2 worked fine for our 32 and 64 bit
platforms? :/.

The correct question here is why doesn't grub2 work on 32 bit platforms?
I did test it with both 32-bit and 64-bit BSPs in meta-intel, so it
should work for the n450 too.
I checked out edison in poky in meta-intel and built core-image-minimal
for n450. By default it builds GRUB 2, which after install boots to a
GRUB prompt with no menu.
I'm not even getting that far with edison - it fails at 'Searching for a
hard drive'. I'd be happy to have it fail with no menu.

Can you send me the commit ids for meta-intel and poky that actually got
you that far, and if you could a serial capture of the install?
Never mind, I actually didn't have a hard drive (wrong power source).
Once I changed that, I got a good install (on crownbay).

It would still be useful to have the serial capture for the n450
though...

Tom


Thanks,

Tom

Using the PREFERRED_PROVIDER method above with the edison branches
results in a GRUB 1 menu after install.

Bodke, Kishore K <kishore.k.bodke@...>
 

Hi All ,

 

I tried booting Yocto ISO image for Romley.  It crashed .

 

Attached is the screen shot .

 

Does anybody booted the yocto Image on meta-intel, other than USB?

 

 

Thanks

Kishore.

When grub2 was merged int oe-core, it became the default (rather than
being explicitly requested by the 64b meta-intel BSPs). This breaks the
live install on 32b systems, like the n450 - installing grub v1.99 with
a grub v1 config.

We have a couple options on how to fix this.

1) Set PREFERRED_PROVIDER_grub="0.97" in all 32b x86 machine configs
2) Set DEFAULT_PREFERENCE="-1" in the grub_1.99.bb recipe which would
affect all of oe-core.
3) Some alternate approach which would be the equivalent of
DEFAULT_PREFERENCE, but only for meta-yocto BSPs or the poky
"distro".

Given the time frame, I'd prefer to agree on the approach before writing
and testing patches. Preferences?
I thought I'd been assured grub2 worked fine for our 32 and 64 bit
platforms? :/.

The correct question here is why doesn't grub2 work on 32 bit platforms?
I did test it with both 32-bit and 64-bit BSPs in meta-intel, so it
should work for the n450 too.
I checked out edison in poky in meta-intel and built core-image-minimal
for n450. By default it builds GRUB 2, which after install boots to a
GRUB prompt with no menu.

Using the PREFERRED_PROVIDER method above with the edison branches
results in a GRUB 1 menu after install.

The answer might be "we need for time than is available in the 1.1
release to fix it" but I'd at least like to see the answer to the
question before we start with workarounds.

Cheers,

Richard
