Rather than Git repositories, these files are tarballs that represent snapshots in time of a given component.
The recommended method for accessing Yocto Project components is to use Git to clone the upstream repository and work from within that locally cloned repository.
With CROPS, which leverages Docker Containers, you can create a Yocto Project development environment that is operating system agnostic.
See the following references for information on how to prepare for Board Support Package (BSP) development, kernel development, and development using the If your build host does not meet any of these three listed version requirements, you can take steps to prepare the system so that you can still use the Yocto Project.
See the "Required Git, tar, and Python Versions" section in the Yocto Project Reference Manual for information. If you are going to use the Extensible SDK, see the "Using the Extensible SDK" Chapter in the Yocto Project Application Development and the Extensible Software Development Kit (e SDK) manual.
Welcome to the Yocto Project Development Tasks Manual!
This manual provides relevant procedures necessary for developing in the Yocto Project environment (i.e.
Procedures can consist of high-level steps or low-level steps depending on the topic.
The following list describes what you can get from this manual: Because this manual presents information for many different topics, supplemental information is recommended for full comprehension.
You can build off it and customize it to fit any particular working environment and set of practices.
This section provides procedures to set up your development host to use the Yocto Project.
