Poky platform builder is a combined cross build system and development
environment. It features support for building X11/Matchbox/GTK based
filesystem images for various embedded devices and boards. It also
supports cross-architecture application development using QEMU emulation
and a standalone toolchain and SDK with IDE integration.
Poky has an extensive handbook, the source of which is contained in
the handbook directory. For compiled HTML or pdf versions of this,
see the Poky website http://pokylinux.org.
Required Packages
===
Running Poky on Debian based distributions requires the following
extra packages be installed;
build-essential
diffstat
texinfo
texi2html
cvs
subversion
gawk
bochsbios (to run qemux86 images)
You also need to install the qemu from http://debian.o-hand.com/. A
poky-depends deb is also available from this source which will install
all the dependencies mentioned above for you.
Alternatively poky can build qemu itself, but for this you need the
following packages installed;
gcc-3.4
libsdl1.2-dev
zlib1g-dev
You will also need to comment out ASSUME_PROVIDED += "qemu-native"' in
build/conf/local.conf.
Building under other distro's such as Fedora is known to work. Use the above
package names as a guide for dependencies.
Building An Image
===
Simply run;
% source poky-init-build-env
% bitbake poky-image-sato
This will result in an ext2 image and kernel for qemu arm (see scripts dir).
To build for other machine types see MACHINE in build/conf/local.conf
Other image targets such as poky-image-sdk or poky-image-minimal are available,
see meta/packages/images/*.
