Generating .sdcard image as part of bitbake (Apalis iMX8)


I am using Apalis iMX8 SOM and Ixora carrier board.

I would like to generate .sdcard image as part of bitbake command. So I have modified oe-core/layers/meta-toradex-nxp/conf/machine/apalis-imx8.conf file and added IMAGE_FSTYPES += " sdcard" to produce .sdcard image file.

However, Bitbake throws an error because the supported bbclass file is missing.

Can you please guide us steps/procedures to generate .sdcard image as part of bitbake command?


Hi @Dhanyakumar,

Toradex does not support distro booting from external media, such as USB and SD Card. That said you can still place kernel and filesystem from SD CARD if that is your goal.

Please check below link for more details

Let me know if this not what you are looking for or have any query.
