Building Yocto Project Image for i.MX 8QuadMax Problem (do_fetch)


I’m trying to build a yocto image (imx-4.9.51-8qm_beta2). I followed the guide:

and this one:

All recipes seem to be executed successfully except one which is the where I get an error on the task do_fetch:

ERROR: firmware-imx-1_7.3-r0 do_fetch: Fetcher failure for URL: 'git://;protocol=git;branch=master;destsuffix=/home/mansour/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp/build_imx8/tmp/work/all-poky-linux/firmware-imx/1_7.3-r0/firmware-imx-7.3/git'. Unable to fetch URL from any source.

I tried to change the URL to GitHub - NXP/imx-firmware but then i got compiling errors.

Best regards,


Hi @majd.m

The version V1.0A of Apalis iMX8QM is not supported any more, as this was an early Access Product.
Please upgrade to the version 1.0B.

Best regards,


Looks like git:// is up again.
Otherwise you might have success with using github:

IMX_FIRMWARE_SRC ?= “git://;protocol=https”
