Where to get edison-src-ww*-*.tgz for Release 3.0 Yocto* complete image

Jump to solution

Previously I used edison-src-ww05-15.tgz for building yocto image, which was placed on page:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24909/Intel-Edison-OS-Image-release-2-0 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24909/Intel-Edison-OS-Image-release-2-0

I navigated to this page from page

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=edison Drivers & Software

Is there bundle edison-src-ww*-*.tgz for Release 3.0. Download page only have reference to this http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/sources/ sources/ . But I can't find there package with edison-src folder which I need for building manual.

One more question - will it be possible to add meta openembedded layers from https://github.com/openembedded/meta-openembedded GitHub - openembedded/meta-openembedded? What brunch I need to checkout? (What release name will be for 3.0? It is not listed on this page https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Releases https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Releases yet )

Hi,

My 2 eurocents,

I failed to build the 'latest' edison-src-weekly-68.tgz? out of the box for the IOT roadshow, i went hunting but got nowhere. I asked the event organisers (Thanks for all your help!) but like me, all of the links and support documentation points to a support page that does not have anything - possibly that could also be updated with this news?

How close is it to the yocto 3.0 to the http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-intel-edison/ meta-intel-edison - Layer for the Intel Edison Development Platform bitbake recipies?

Regards,

Tim.

Hi TimOC,

 

 

The new image includes some fixes and additional packages, but there is not difference in the kernel and Uboot. You can check the release notes for additional details in the following site: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2016/03/30/intel-iot-developer-kit-30-release-notes https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2016/03/30/intel-iot-developer-kit-30-release-notes

And what about SPI driver? Isn't it in kernel? I tested 3.0 Complete Image and seems like SPI was fixed in 3.0.

Hi nsrb,

 

 

The only updates in the 3.0 version are the ones mentioned in the release notes, there were no updates to the kernel nor the U-Boot.

Answer looks strange becouse if we go to the 4th comment of ChrisIntel says:

... That is correct, the Kernel is being updated publically. If you want more information please take a look here:

https://github.com/01org/edison-linux/commits/wip-edison-3.19.5 https://github.com/01org/edison-linux/commits/wip-edison-3.19.5

If we go to github there are relly some things related to SPI. So if you now say that "there were no updates to the kernel" it means that kernel not included in image but on each yocto building last commit cloned from git? Is it correct? If yes so now 2.1 release also will have fixed SPI because it also will have updated kernel?

If yes it is also strange - if I will build image today and tomorrow somebody will make new commit to kernel which will break some kernel drivers it will be very hard to find reason of issue.

I am a little bit confused with such terminology.

I think it is not correct to say "there were no updates to the kernel" if there were because many people now think that 2.1 had SPI issue, and they wait next release with update.
