Create custom package in Yocto, without compiling Yocto?

Jump to solution

Sorry, I searched several hours on this topic, but still no result, can I ask here?

Is it possible to create my own .ipk binary package on my Intel Edison to port on another Intel Edison? I installed edison-image-ww25.5-15.zip

For example now I have some source tar which I can build

tar -xf source.tar

cd source

make

make install

and it works perfectly, but it is not convenient way to make it if I will have several Edison devices. So I need some easy way to detect/pack all installed files to some ipk package or at least to some tar which I will unpack with tar -xf -C / . On Fedora linux it was easy with rpmbuild tool, is there something same here on yocto?

Hello nsrb,

In in section 4.4 of http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005616.html Edison's BSP User Guide it is explained how to build a recipe from scratch and add it to Edison's image. You can build only the recipe you are interested and then you can find the ipk in build/tmp/deploy/ipk/edison. That ipk can be installed on any Edison. I'd suggest you to also read http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/1.8/bitbake-user-manual/bitbake-user-manual.html# bitbake-user-manual-command BitBake User Manual and in the general all the http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/1.8/mega-manual/mega-manual.html Yocto's Mega-Manual so you can learn more about this subject.

Peter.
