Embedded Linux Development Using Yocto Project - Third Edition

By: Otavio Salvador, Daiane Angolini

Overview of this book

The Yocto Project is the industry standard for developing dependable embedded Linux projects. It stands out from other frameworks by offering time-efficient development with enhanced reliability and robustness. With Embedded Linux Development Using Yocto Project, you’ll acquire an understanding of Yocto Project tools, helping you perform different Linux-based tasks. You’ll gain a deep understanding of Poky and BitBake, explore practical use cases for building a Linux subsystem project, employ Yocto Project tools available for embedded Linux, and uncover the secrets of SDK, recipe tool, and others. This new edition is aligned with the latest long-term support release of the aforementioned technologies and introduces two new chapters, covering optimal emulation in QEMU for faster product development and best practices. By the end of this book, you’ll be well-equipped to generate and run an image for real hardware boards. You’ll gain hands-on experience in building efficient Linux systems using the Yocto Project.

Booting Our Custom Embedded Linux

It’s time! We are ready to boot our custom-made embedded Linux, as we have learned the required concepts and gained enough knowledge about the Yocto Project and Poky. In this chapter, we will practice what we have learned so far about using Poky with external BSP layers to generate an image for use with the following machines and boot it using the SD card:

  • BeagleBone Black
  • Raspberry Pi 4
  • VisionFive

The concepts in this chapter can be applied to every other board as long as the vendor provides a BSP layer to use with the Yocto Project.
