Git for Edison/Yocto

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there a Git repository for Edison/Yocto?

I tried to build Git from source but ran into a few issues: missing certain Perl module for ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm. When I tried to install the module from CPAN, I found that the Perl installation in Yocto is non-standard. When I tried to rebuild Perl from source, I discovered a few more missing modules from Yocto.

Rather than spending any more time, I'm looking to see if there is a pre-built Git package for Yocto.

Hello Tuan_Bui,

There are no official repositories right now, but AlexT created this amazing unofficial repo: http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/ Index of /edison/repo, and here: http://alextgalileo.altervista.org/edison-package-repo-configuration-instructions.html Edison Package Repo Configuration Instructions you will find an explanation on how to install packages from this repo.

However I suggest you to use "opkg install" instead of "opkg upgrade" because if you use the later the Edison will upgrade all upgradable packages, this could lead to your Edison's memory to be filled up very quickly. I suggest you to only install the packages you need in order to avoid what I explained before.

So, the commands you use should look like this:

opkg update

opkg install perl

Peter.
