OpenEmbedded (core) libcrypto++9v5:i386

I am trying to recreate a BSP with OpenEmbedded core and I was following the tutorial, in the prerequisites part I have an issue with the line:

sudo apt-get install curl dosfstools gawk g++-multilib gcc-multilib lib32z1-dev libcrypto++9v5:i386 libcrypto++-dev:i386 liblzo2-dev:i386 lzop libsdl1.2-dev libstdc++-5-dev:i386 libusb-1.0-0:i386 libusb-1.0-0-dev:i386 uuid-dev:i386 texinfo chrpath

The issue is with the libcrypto++9v5:i386 I have the error:

E: Unable to locate package libcrypto++9v5:i386
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libcrypto++9v5'

Note: I want to create an image of a linux distro (centOS) with yocto/OpenEmbedded (core) and then burn it on the embedded system so if you have any tutorial this would be very interesting.

What exact development workstation environment (distro and flavor thereof e.g. 32 v.s. 64-bit) are you talking about?

BTW: I do not quite understand your note as OpenEmbedded/Yocto Projet can only ever be used to create Open Embedded/Yocto Project images.

developement workstation environment ( ubuntu 18.04 64 bit).
I don’t get why this package in particular is causing trouble.

Concernining oe/yocto, I am new to OpenEmbedded/yocto maybe I didn’t understand correctly. In the yocto docs it said: it’s not an embedded linux distro. So on which distro is yocto based to create image? From what I understood, given a linux distro ( exemple centOS) we can customize it with yocto.

Unfortunately Ubuntu 18.04 is not supported by Yocto Build System as described here. Please switch to Ubuntu 16.04 or a different Linux.

If you prefer, you can also do a container approach and install also an Ubuntu 16.04 container.

What exact build are you attempting? Most likely Ubuntu 18.04 is not suitable to build whatever older OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project version. I recommend using a stable Debian container instead.

I don’t think your current understanding of OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project is correct. It may only be used to build custom OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project images, nothing more and nothing less, sorry.
