This talk introduces "simplest-yocto-setup", a practical and working example of how a Yocto layer implementing a final product should be written: simple, stupid, hassle-free, understandable and maintainable.
While working as consultants on several customer Yocto/OpenEmbedded setups we have seen all sorts of problems caused by all sorts of complicated code in their layers. We have spent a lot of time in educating them to writing clean layers, which often involved fixing their problems by removing a lot of the code they had written.
simplest-yocto-setup is an example OpenEmbedded setup that implements a working layer, the way we think it should be.
- machine configurations for widely available development boards
- an example distro
- recipes to build boot components (firmware, bootloader, kernel)
- recipes for some userspace applications
- an image recipe
The goal is to provide an example that Yocto/OpenEmbedded users can use as a starting point to write their own layers and live happy.
Luca is an Embedded Linux engineer at Bootlin, working on kernel, device drivers, bootloaders and build system integration, and on upstreaming on all the above.
He is a teacher of the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded development training and contributes to the Yocto Project SWAT Team.
Luca has been a speaker at ELCE and FOSDEM.
