Hi there, I am working towards finding the best starting place for a minimal fastboot linux image on Apalis T30 with support for graphics, networking, Wifi, LVDS, touchscreen, USB storage, and sound.
I’ve tried 3 approaches so far:
- building LXDE image and removing the extras
- building poky and adding a window manager or lightweight UI
- rolling our own with the toradex kernel, latest busybox, and maintaining a root file system
The instructions for openembeeded build and poky build for toradex were good, so I have no problem there setting up the build, and I was able to try each of those out. I was able to try all three approaches, and all had drawbacks.
In the process of trying out the builds, I noticed that the toradex easy installer is actually much closer to the starting point we want (GitHub - toradex/meta-toradex-tezi: Meta layer to build Toradex Easy Installer images ). I found the github for that, but was unable to build. Is the Apalis T30 checked in there, or is it just an internal build? If so, would I be able to get that without the easy installer app or wec image tool? Or maybe I checked out the wrong branch or missed something?
Also, what else needs to be done to get to a QT “hello world” with that build? I realise a couple portions are internal use to Toradex, I just want to be able to see how close that build is to what we need? Do I need to use a specific Toradex branch to match up with morty or morty-next of tezi and what do you recommend?
Any help on which branches to use or build tweaks to make that work would be appreciated. I am fine with steps to setup open embedded tools and environment, adding layers, and setting the build target. If there is anything more than that, I may need some tips.
