I have an Ubuntu 14.04 build machine (a virtual private server). I’ve cloned Yocto and was able to build their default Intel image to run on QEMU.
I then cloned meta-altera in to the poky directory and edited
conf/local.conf to select the kernel (ltsi-rt 4.2) and tried to set
MACHINE = "de0-nano-soc" but the build system didn’t recognize that machine. I changed it to
cyclonev and tried to
bitbake virtual/bootloader which largely behaved itself before failing.
Before I start digging in to errors I’d rather get myself building for my board.
Also I’m trying not to use the EDSSoc provided by Altera if possible. For one I could not install on my VPS because it needed XTERM and some other graphical dependency. I’m on the software side and don’t need the hardware tools nor will I use Eclipse. I had the impression I could build the kernel, bootloader, filesystem, and cross toolchain using Yocto.
