Bitbake: .tar.bz2 not created


I have been following these guides:

Here are the commands I have run:

mkdir ~/bin

export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

curl > ~/bin/repo

chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

cd ~/bin

repo init -u -b LinuxImage3.0 -m default.xml

repo sync

. export

sudo nano conf/local.conf ← uncommented MACHINE for apalis iMX6

cd ..

mkdir stuff

git clone -b toradex_4.14-2.3.x-imx git://

cd linux-toradex

sudo patch -p1 < ~/patch/seventhTry.path ← applying my patch, only edits /drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-imx.c and /drivers/i2c/busses/Kconfig

cd ../build

bitbake linux-toradex ← screenshot of build configuration is as followsalt text

When I run ls /deply/images/apalis-imx6, there is not a tar.bz2 file. This is what is inside that directory:alt text

Is there another place I can look for the .tar.bz2 file in order to flash my iMX6? Did I happen to configure it not to make the .tar.bz2 file?

Thanks for helping out!

Hi @samantha!

According to this:

repo init -u -b LinuxImage3.0 -m default.xml

you’re actually using our BSP 3.0. From that version on, we do not support the “legacy” flashing method anymore. Upon building, you’ll see a tarball with “Tezi” on its name (e.g. Apalis-iMX6_Console-Image-Tezi_3.0b4-20200516.tar). You can use that and the Toradex Easy Installer - which comes pre-installed on the module - to flash the image to your board.

Also, when you bitbake linux-toradex you’re only building the Linux kernel itself. This won’t generate the full Toradex Easy Installer image as mentioned above. To build a full image, you must use one of the targets such as console-tdx-image:

$ bitbake console-tdx-image

Thank you so much @gustavo.tx!
