I'm trying to build IoTivity for Edison.
Part of the instructions require the Yocto Edison source. If I go to the downloads section for the Edison board (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone) and try to download the Linux Source Files all I get is a 194-byte tarball with a folder in it named "patches". No other files or folders inside it. This doesn't seem like the intent of the file.
I also found this out today.
If it helps, you can download the previous version from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24910/Intel-Edison-Software-Release-2-1 Download Intel Edison Software Release 2.1
Look for edison-src-ww18-15.tgz in the long list of downloads.
I just downloaded it - a few minutes ago - and it all seems to be there.
I haven't installed it yet.
I can't get at the release notes however - just asked to sign in and then after wasting time with a password change it just says I'm not authorised to view it.
I just reported the Linux source files issue, thank you for letting us now this. Regarding the Release Notes, this is now being worked on, the link to the document is not broken but it has an access restriction. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Mike, we apologize for making you follow a process that didn't solve the problem.
What should be the expected purpose for the edison-image-1.0-r0-patched.tar.gz downloaded at Source - Linux Source File link below
BTW I would like to download the new updated edison-src.tar supporting the updated Yocto Dizzy 1.7.3 image build as described on User Guide pdf
Regarding the Linux Source File, as you can see in my post above this is being worked on now. Hopefully it will be fixed quickly.
Now, for your other question, I just checked the documents that you shared, the Intel Edison Board Support Package, and I'm not able to find anything related to Dizzy 1.7.3 being supported. Could you please be more specific? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong document.
Intel Edison 3.0 image is 1.7.3 (cat /etc/issue) also if not mentioned in the release note.
Intel might prefer to deliver just pre-built image version and then via iotdk repos providing any packaging updates? hopefully not.
The Intel BSP pdf I was referring is Yocto generic and still building sources for 2.1 is not anymore downloadable (like it was some days ago).
I can find a meta-intel-edison on git.yoctoproject but it is not the 3.0 (but also not 2.1 and using another kernel release) .
As reported, the linux source files for Release 3.0 is still blank as of now. Does the Release 3.0 allows us to finally use the MCU SPI bus?
We appreciate your patience on this, the people in charge is now working on having everything as it should be.
D.Sync, regarding your question about the MCU SPI bus, the MCU hasn't been updated in this release.
I'm also searching to download the new version of edison-src.tar... But on this link: https://software.intel.com/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone I'm just finding files: http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/sources/i586-poky-linux/edison-image-1.0-r0/edison-image-1.0-r0-pat... edison-image-1.0-r0-patched.tar.gz or http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-GPL_LGPL-sources-ww25.5-15%20(1).zip edison-GPL_LGPL-sources-ww25.5-15%20(1).zip. But none of these 2 seems to be the equivalent to edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz.
So, my questions are:
1-How can I download the new version of: edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz?
2-Or even how can I find the edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz?'
I'm luck that I had saved the edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz and I'm working on that to create my custom image. But I would love to have access to the new version.
Thanks a lot in advance,
About the latest image source code, we are aware that the current download file is not the actual source for the 3.0 image and we're now working on this, it should be fixed and available soon.
Regarding your second question, you can use this link to download the source code for the previous image http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-src-ww25.5-15.tgz.
I'm in the same problem too. I'm trying to build Edison v.3.0. the instructions require the Yocto Edison source. If I go to the downloads section for the Edison board (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone) and try to download the Linux Source Files all I get is at http:// http:// iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/sources/i586-poky-linux/edison-image-1.0-r0/edison-image-1.0-r0-patched.ta...
is :404 Not Found
When it's planned to fix this ?
We are working to fix this as soon as possible, but we don't have a fixed date yet. We'll let you know if we have any updates on this.
If this is not going to be fixed at least update https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone and mention that sources are not available or use previous version, this way people don't lose time trying to find an inexistent tarball through a bunch of packages.
Yes, it makes you wonder..
Would it be an idea to distribute sources in one fashion only, for instance I have been using git from http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-intel-edison/ meta-intel-edison - Layer for the Intel Edison Development Platform which allows working on my project while updating kernel, yocto or iot-middleware when I choose.
this is the way Intel works since when move to China the open source software development for Yocto
some quality also at professional level.. very sad!
for who interested in communication and IoT stack the meta-eca layer (not from Intel) is usable also on Texas BBB and on the Edison (and others boards)
It is truly ashame that Intel has so little pride in their products as to leave developers hanging. This whole Intel / Yocto problem is in definite need of some leadership from Intel management. This looks like a hackers world of the blind instead of a world class processor company. I've been using Intel products for 40 years and have been working on a new embedded book using the edison. I throwing the edison in the garbage, and shifting to the ARM processor, since Intel can't seem to figure out how to update their kernel or even provide good CURRENT documentation on where the files are located, what they are named, and where the current Yocto poky base is located.
I sent an email yesterday and got an email from a nameless tech support to call a 916 number. Not happening! I think it is terrible that so little effort is being put forward by Intel when it comes to useful current documentation for the edison. Not the company it use to be, that's for sure.
We need the pointer to the correct kernel sources so that we can update our Yocto build to the 3.0 release, and also does anyone know the process for updating the git repository URL in yocto to pull new kernel sources? Please advise.
Hi, Is there some progress on 3.0 sources? Or at least some very rough estimated time when sources will be? Are there some problems with preparing bundle? Can community help in any way to make it faster?
