understanding recipes


Jim Abernathy
 

I'm trying to understand the concept of creating a recipe and having it included in the build I do.

For example, suppose I want to create the meta-intel/meta-cedartrail BSP with the core-image-minimal image, but I wanted to include hello world as shown in 3.1.2 Autotooled Package section of the Poky reference Manual.

Where do I put the recipe file? I'm guessing a recipe-jfa directory at the same level as the meta-cedartrail recipe-core, recipe-kernel, recipe-graphic, recipe-bsp?

I'm also assuming that helloworld.bb file would contain:

DESCRIPTION = "GNU Helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "GPLv2+"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
PR = "r0"

SRC_URI = "${GNU_MIRROR}/hello/hello-${PV}.tar.gz"

inherit autotools gettext


So where do the values of ${GNU_MIRROR|, and ${PV} get set correctly?

And what does the following line do or require me to do:

LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"

Is this all that is needed to get helloworld put into /usr/bin so it can be executed at the command line when the image is booted?

Hi Jim,

The best way to do this is to create your own layer, and keep all of your customizations there.

You'd put this in a directory, say meta-jfa with something like the following:

meta-jfa/
meta-jfa/conf/layer.conf
meta-jfa/recipes-jfa/helloworld/helloworld.bb

where your layer.conf file would look like:

# We have a conf and classes directory, add to BBPATH
BBPATH := "${BBPATH}:${LAYERDIR}"

# We have a packages directory, add to BBFILES
BBFILES := "${BBFILES} ${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bb \
${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bbappend"

BBFILE_COLLECTIONS += "jfa"
BBFILE_PATTERN_jfa := "^${LAYERDIR}/"
BBFILE_PRIORITY_jfa = "5"

Then point your build's bblayers.conf file to include the path to your meta-jfa/ directory.


I'm also assuming that helloworld.bb file would contain:

DESCRIPTION = "GNU Helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "GPLv2+"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
PR = "r0"

SRC_URI = "${GNU_MIRROR}/hello/hello-${PV}.tar.gz"

inherit autotools gettext

Those examples are defined in the bitbake classes you have in your base layers.

And what does the following line do or require me to do:

LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
This was answered in another post.

be executed at the command line when the image is booted?
You'd also need to add the helloworld package to your image file. The simplest way to do this is to add EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "helloworld" in your build's local.conf file.

I think the above should be accurate enough w/o testing it myself.

I got the layer created like you said, but the test had a fetch problem and it just locked up there. Had to control-C out of it.  Console below:

If you look in:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/hello/

you'll see which versions are available. Rename your recipe filename to reflect the version you wish to use, for example helloworld_2.7.bb

The part of the filename after the underscore is what will get interpolated into ${PV}.

If you look in:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/hello/

you'll see which versions are available. Rename your recipe filename to reflect the version you wish to use, for example helloworld_2.7.bb
Duh! Now that makes sense. Sorry for being so dense. That's what happens when your been programing since Fortran was at the 1.0 level. Brain goes soft.

The part of the filename after the underscore is what will get interpolated into ${PV}.

Hi Jim,

You'd put this in a directory, say meta-jfa with something like the
following:

meta-jfa/
meta-jfa/conf/layer.conf
meta-jfa/recipes-jfa/helloworld/helloworld.bb

where your layer.conf file would look like:

# We have a conf and classes directory, add to BBPATH
BBPATH := "${BBPATH}:${LAYERDIR}"

# We have a packages directory, add to BBFILES
BBFILES := "${BBFILES} ${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bb \
${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bbappend"

BBFILE_COLLECTIONS += "jfa"
BBFILE_PATTERN_jfa := "^${LAYERDIR}/"
BBFILE_PRIORITY_jfa = "5"

Then point your build's bblayers.conf file to include the path to your
meta-jfa/ directory.


I'm also assuming that helloworld.bb file would contain:

DESCRIPTION = "GNU Helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "GPLv2+"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"

SRC_URI = "${GNU_MIRROR}/hello/hello-${PV}.tar.gz"

So where do the values of ${GNU_MIRROR|, and ${PV} get set correctly?

In this case, the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is storing the md5sum of the COPYING file, which is stored in the top-level directory of the extracted sources.

So manually download the hello version you are trying to use, extract the tarball locally, and run md5sum against the COPYING file. Then update the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM field with that new md5 checksum.

This is a common process we have to go through when upgrading recipes, so you're getting a taste of what working with the distro/metadata team is like. :)

One more thing - when LIC_FILES_CHKSUM changes, you should always verify that the license for the sources haven't changed (in this case GPL v2 or later). If it did change, you'd also need to change the LICENSE field in the recipe to reflect the new license. LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is a step we added so we don't miss license changes.

Thanks for a clear explanation. This is an area I'm sure my customers will struggle with. I think another problem I was having was the recipe was called helloworld, but the application seems to be just "hello". By making those changes, it helped the License file be found more directly and it passed.

I'm going to do a complete build now and see what happens.

Thanks again,

Then point your build's bblayers.conf file to include the path to your

If you look in:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/hello/

you'll see which versions are available. Rename your recipe filename
to reflect the version you wish to use, for example helloworld_2.7.bb

The part of the filename after the underscore is what will get
interpolated into ${PV}.

Now I have gotten by the fetching but the license file information in
the .bb file from the example is incorrect. I can't see from the
Reference manual License section enough information for me to create
that line in the .bb file. What is the process to figure this out?
In this case, the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is storing the md5sum of the COPYING file, which is stored in the top-level directory of the extracted sources.

So manually download the hello version you are trying to use, extract the tarball locally, and run md5sum against the COPYING file. Then update the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM field with that
new md5 checksum.

This is a common process we have to go through when upgrading recipes, so you're getting a taste of what working with the distro/metadata team is like. :)

One more thing - when LIC_FILES_CHKSUM changes, you should always verify that the license for the sources haven't changed (in this case GPL v2 or later). If it did change, you'd
also need to change the LICENSE field in the recipe to reflect the new license. LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is a step we added so we don't miss license changes.
I use the attached script to automate this - it puts the files
in the correct format (modulo a little path massaging if necessary).

What I do when I run across these problems is this:
% bitbake <recipe>
... fails with LIC_FILES_CHKSUM errors
% make_LIC_FILES_CHECKSUM tmp/work/<path-to-recipe-tree>/<LICENSE_FILES>
e.g.
(cd tmp/work/armv7a-vfp-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi/helloworld-2.7-r0/helloworld-2.7/;make_LIC_FILES_CHECKSUM COPYING)
Cut & paste the output into your recipe and rebuild.

The script makes it much simpler to do this when multiple
files are involved.

Hi Jim,

The best way to do this is to create your own layer, and keep all of
your customizations there.

You'd put this in a directory, say meta-jfa with something like the
following:

meta-jfa/
meta-jfa/conf/layer.conf
meta-jfa/recipes-jfa/helloworld/helloworld.bb

where your layer.conf file would look like:

# We have a conf and classes directory, add to BBPATH
BBPATH := "${BBPATH}:${LAYERDIR}"

# We have a packages directory, add to BBFILES
BBFILES := "${BBFILES} ${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bb \
${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bbappend"

BBFILE_COLLECTIONS += "jfa"
BBFILE_PATTERN_jfa := "^${LAYERDIR}/"
BBFILE_PRIORITY_jfa = "5"

Then point your build's bblayers.conf file to include the path to your
meta-jfa/ directory.


I'm also assuming that helloworld.bb file would contain:

DESCRIPTION = "GNU Helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "GPLv2+"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM =
"file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
PR = "r0"

SRC_URI = "${GNU_MIRROR}/hello/hello-${PV}.tar.gz"

inherit autotools gettext


So where do the values of ${GNU_MIRROR|, and ${PV} get set correctly?

Those examples are defined in the bitbake classes you have in your
base layers.

And what does the following line do or require me to do:

LIC_FILES_CHKSUM =
"file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"

This was answered in another post.

Is this all that is needed to get helloworld put into /usr/bin so
it can
be executed at the command line when the image is booted?

You'd also need to add the helloworld package to your image file. The
simplest way to do this is to add EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "helloworld"
in your build's local.conf file.

I think the above should be accurate enough w/o testing it myself.

I got the layer created like you said, but the test had a fetch problem
and it just locked up there. Had to control-C out of it. Console below:

okay,  I got a clean build, but hello was not in the final image even though I had:

EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "hello"

in the local.conf. I ran hob against this and could see that hello was an option, but it was not selected.  Trying to bake with hob from there didn't work, but that's not as important.

Any ideas as to why EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "hello"  didn't add the hello code to the final image?

EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES enables target *features*, not packages.

To get your package added, use this in local.conf
IMAGE_INSTALL += " hello "

If you look in:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/hello/

you'll see which versions are available. Rename your recipe filename
to reflect the version you wish to use, for example helloworld_2.7.bb

The part of the filename after the underscore is what will get
interpolated into ${PV}.

Now I have gotten by the fetching but the license file information in
the .bb file from the example is incorrect. I can't see from the
Reference manual License section enough information for me to create
that line in the .bb file. What is the process to figure this out?
In this case, the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is storing the md5sum of the COPYING file, which is stored in the top-level directory of the extracted sources.

So manually download the hello version you are trying to use, extract the tarball locally, and run md5sum against the COPYING file. Then update the LIC_FILES_CHKSUM field with that
new md5 checksum.

This is a common process we have to go through when upgrading recipes, so you're getting a taste of what working with the distro/metadata team is like. :)

One more thing - when LIC_FILES_CHKSUM changes, you should always verify that the license for the sources haven't changed (in this case GPL v2 or later). If it did change, you'd
also need to change the LICENSE field in the recipe to reflect the new license. LIC_FILES_CHKSUM is a step we added so we don't miss license changes.
I use the attached script to automate this - it puts the files
in the correct format (modulo a little path massaging if necessary).

What I do when I run across these problems is this:
% bitbake <recipe>
... fails with LIC_FILES_CHKSUM errors
% make_LIC_FILES_CHECKSUM tmp/work/<path-to-recipe-tree>/<LICENSE_FILES>
e.g.
(cd tmp/work/armv7a-vfp-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi/helloworld-2.7-r0/helloworld-2.7/;make_LIC_FILES_CHECKSUM COPYING)
Cut & paste the output into your recipe and rebuild.

The script makes it much simpler to do this when multiple
files are involved.

okay, I got a clean build, but hello was not in the final image even though I had:

EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "hello"

in the local.conf. I ran hob against this and could see that hello was an option, but it was not selected. Trying to bake with hob from there didn't work, but that's not as important.

Any ideas as to why EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "hello" didn't add the hello code to the final image?
EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES enables target *features*, not packages.

To get your package added, use this in local.conf
IMAGE_INSTALL += " hello "
Based on what I've discovered about the use of IMAGE_INSTALL in local.conf, I'll opt for POKY_EXTRA_INSTALL += "hello"

That option worked. So now I can better understand this. Thanks all.

Would the make a good example for the How Do I section on the wiki? I can write it up if someone will review and post.

I'm trying to understand the concept of creating a recipe and
having it
included in the build I do.

For example, suppose I want to create the
meta-intel/meta-cedartrail BSP
with the core-image-minimal image, but I wanted to include
hello world
as shown in 3.1.2 Autotooled Package section of the Poky
reference
Manual.

Where do I put the recipe file? I'm guessing a recipe-jfa
directory at
the same level as the meta-cedartrail recipe-core, recipe-kernel,
recipe-graphic, recipe-bsp?
Hi Jim,

The best way to do this is to create your own layer, and keep
all of
your customizations there.

You'd put this in a directory, say meta-jfa with something like
the
following:

meta-jfa/
meta-jfa/conf/layer.conf
meta-jfa/recipes-jfa/helloworld/helloworld.bb

where your layer.conf file would look like:

# We have a conf and classes directory, add to BBPATH
BBPATH := "${BBPATH}:${LAYERDIR}"

# We have a packages directory, add to BBFILES
BBFILES := "${BBFILES} ${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bb \
${LAYERDIR}/recipes-*/*/*.bbappend"

BBFILE_COLLECTIONS += "jfa"
BBFILE_PATTERN_jfa := "^${LAYERDIR}/"
BBFILE_PRIORITY_jfa = "5"

Then point your build's bblayers.conf file to include the path
to your
meta-jfa/ directory.


I'm also assuming that helloworld.bb file would contain:

DESCRIPTION = "GNU Helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "GPLv2+"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM =
"file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
PR = "r0"

SRC_URI = "${GNU_MIRROR}/hello/hello-${PV}.tar.gz"

inherit autotools gettext


So where do the values of ${GNU_MIRROR|, and ${PV} get set
correctly?
Those examples are defined in the bitbake classes you have in your
base layers.

And what does the following line do or require me to do:

LIC_FILES_CHKSUM =
"file://COPYING;md5=751419260aa954499f7abaabaa882bbe"
This was answered in another post.

Is this all that is needed to get helloworld put into /usr/bin so
it can
be executed at the command line when the image is booted?
You'd also need to add the helloworld package to your image
file. The
simplest way to do this is to add EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES +=
"helloworld"
in your build's local.conf file.

I think the above should be accurate enough w/o testing it myself.
I got the layer created like you said, but the test had a fetch
problem
and it just locked up there. Had to control-C out of it. Console
below:

Or if you're lazy, like me, you can just run the build and let it fail then run md5sum on the extracted source in the work directory.

i.e. for qemux86 hello world I could bitbake helloworld then:

md5sum tmp/work/i586-poky-linux/hello-world-2.7-r0/hello-world-2.7/COPYING

I think it even tells you what it should be, so you don't even need to
do this step. Just set the right file and the correct lines within the
file and run until failure.

Not quite; bitbake will tell you what the correct MD5 and SHA checksums
are for the source package, but it has ho idea what file(s) contain
license information so there's little it can do to guide you on that front.
