Who This Book Is For
If you are an embedded systems enthusiast and willing to learn about compelling features offered by the Yocto Project, then this book is for you. With prior experience in the embedded Linux domain, you can make the most of this book to efficiently create custom Linux-based systems.
What You Will Learn
- Differentiate between OpenEmbedded, Yocto Project, Poky, and BitBake
- Understand the BitBake metadata syntax
- Customize an application development environment
- Debug your application in a cross-compiled environment
- Add and remove features in the Linux kernel configuration
- Meet your project's license compliance requirements with less hassle
- Make embedded Linux systems using Yocto Project
Starting with the very basics of the Yocto Project tools, this book will provide you with all the knowledge you need to work on real Linux-based hardware.
With emphasis on practical implementation, this book starts by helping you set up and configure the Yocto Project tools. It then explains the Hob interface for BitBake in detail. You will explore different directory layouts and learn to maximize the use of the Poky build system.
Compliance is always a hassle, so you will learn the methods to share source code and modifications, and how to fulfill open source license compliance effectively and convincingly. You will then gain experience in the use and construction of layers.
This tutorial guide will teach you everything you need to know to get up and running with Yocto Project and develop amazing Linux-based projects.
Biographie de l'auteur
Otavio Salvador loves to play video games and started his free software activities in 1999. In 2002, he founded O.S. Systems, a company focused on embedded system development services and consultancy worldwide, creating and maintaining customized BSPs and helping companies with their release management challenges. This resulted in him joining the OpenEmbedded community in 2008, when he became an active contributor to the OpenEmbedded project, culminating in his attribution as the maintainer of the Freescale ARM BSP layer in the Yocto Project in 2011.
Daiane Angolini has been focusing on embedded technologies for the past 8 years. Since 2008, she has been working on Freescale Semiconductors as an application engineer, on internal development and porting custom applications from Android to Freescale architectures, and on customer support for ARM processors of the i.MX family, while also participating in Freescale forums. She has been working with the Yocto Project tools through meta-fsl-arm, the BSP meta layer that provides board support for Freescale ARM machines, since 2012. The desire to become an expert in ice cream making has been keeping her busy in her spare time for the past year.
