Torizon build fails mkimage_uboot


I’m trying to build TorizonCore from a crops container.

mkimage_uboot fails because it cannot load
Is this a known issue? Any workaround?

Greetings @klausci,

Yes it seems for the Verdin build requires a newer version of libssl. The container ships with 1.0.0 libssl I believe. Unfortunately, it appears you’ll have to rebuild this container since the default user in this build-container doesn’t have the root permissions to use apt-get. I’ll see about make this easier in the future.

For now you’ll need to copy the container source files from here:

Then in the Dockerfile file you’ll want to add this line: RUN apt-get update && apt-get upgrade openssl libssl-dev -y. It’d be best if you added it right after the USER root line. Like so:

diff --git a/Dockerfile b/Dockerfile
index 75ae512..ae79ebd 100644
--- a/Dockerfile
+++ b/Dockerfile
@@ -2,6 +2,7 @@ FROM crops/poky
 USER root
+RUN apt-get update && apt-get upgrade openssl libssl-dev -y
 # Repo for setup
 # JDK for OSTree push
 # Vim for convenience

Finally you can build this new container image with: docker build -t (whatever name you want) .

Now this new container image should have

Please let me know if you have any further difficulties. The Verdin platform is rather new so we haven’t tested it as well on all of our tools like this build container. Any feedback like this is greatly appreciated.

By the way, out of curiosity for what purpose are you trying to build the Torizon yocto image for Verdin here?

Best Regards,

Hi Jeremias,

I rebuild the container as proposed, but when I run it it failed immediately. I didn’t dig deeper. Do you have an idea?

The reason why I’m trying to rebuild torizon is that I want to test OTA updates (via OTA connect). I want to add and remove packages to see if they get deployed on the target.

It seems the that base crops container image that we base our crops container off of has updated their setup scripts since the last time we built our container.

We’ll have to do some retesting/syncing of the containers on our side.

In the meantime, a colleague shared another workaround with me. Instead of re-building the container you can continue to use our original default build container.

While the default container is running open another terminal to the and run: docker exec -it --user root {container id} bash

This should give you a terminal in the build container itself that has root access allowing you to do the apt-get upgrade process manually. Do note that this change will not be persistent and needs to be done on every new instance of this container. But this is a simple workaround until we can properly fix this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Hi Jeremias,

There seems a problem in your Dockerfile (which appears also if I don’t apply the libssl change).
I made the following changes in Dockerfile and now I can build again. Seems that the autoremove/purge deletes something we need (e.g. python3 seems not to be completely installed). Is it possible that your Dockerfile doesn’t work with the latest crops/poky container?

But good point is: I can now compile mkimage_uboot.

FROM crops/poky

USER root

# Update libssl otherwise ./mkimage_uboot fails
RUN apt-get update && apt-get upgrade openssl libssl-dev -y

# Repo for setup
# JDK for OSTree push
# Vim for convenience
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install --no-install-recommends --no-install-suggests -y repo default-jre
#RUN apt-get update && apt-get install --no-install-recommends --no-install-suggests -y \
#    repo \
#    default-jre \
#    vim-tiny \
#    && apt-get autoremove -y \
#       && apt-get purge -y --auto-remove \
##      && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

# Script to automate env setup
COPY /usr/bin/
RUN chmod 755 \
    /usr/bin/ \

# JSON file for Toradex Easy Installer server over HTTP
COPY image_list.json /etc/

USER usersetup

Yes I was able to confirm after my own testing that our crops container image has fallen out of sync and with the base crops/poky container image. This will require some internal investigation in order for us to update and continually maintain this, so this issue doesn’t happen again.

For the meantime did you see the comment above? Could you try the docker exec method on our default crops container and try to update libssl that way?

Best Regards,

Hi Jeremias,

sorry, I missed the comment above which describes the workaround for your container. But I stick to my own container, as it works now. Thanks for your help

Glad to hear that, and thank you for your feedback we’re in the process to make sure the crops build container stays continually updated and better maintained across all our modules.
