We are using tdx-reference-multimedia-image for Apalis iMX8. We are using Yocto Project dunfell to build this image.
Here I’m looking to add packages to support "apt install " utility tool to support on Target board.
Please suggest how to add “apt install” packages on apalis imx8 .
Apt is a Debian based tool, it will only be available on Debian based images, which our image is not. You can use Debian based containers that be able to have apt on them if needed. My suggestion is to go this route and develop inside a container.
Please suggest the link /step to create a container to add apt support.
Are you set on using yocto to build your image? This is a more in-dept solution that requires more know-how with yocto.
Is it possible for you to use TorizonCore OS? We have quite a bite more guides with TorizonCore.
Here is one for containers with docker.
And here is the overview for TorizonCore.
Thanks for your suggestion.
We have moved our development with yocto build image. If any helpful links to add apt install will be helpful.
Here is a similar question to yours that suggests you can add packages via your local.conf
I’ve built my own Linux image using the “Build a Reference Image with Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded” guide.
I added apt as a package using the provided recipe as explained in the guide and the webinar on that page, and I manage to install it on my Colibri imx6ull using the Easy Installer. However, now when I try to use apt-get it cannot find any packages. The /etc/apt/source.list file doesn’t exist and when I run apt-get update and upgrade nothing happens.
Does anyone know how to solve this? …
