meta-virtualization =================== This layer provides support for building Xen, KVM, Libvirt, and associated packages necessary for constructing OE-based virtualized solutions. The bbappend files for some recipes (e.g. linux-yocto) in this layer need to have 'virtualization' in DISTRO_FEATURES to have effect. To enable them, add in configuration file the following line. DISTRO_FEATURES_append = " virtualization" If meta-virtualization is included, but virtualization is not enabled as a distro feature a warning is printed at parse time: You have included the meta-virtualization layer, but 'virtualization' has not been enabled in your DISTRO_FEATURES. Some bbappend files may not take effect. See the meta-virtualization README for details on enabling virtualization support. If you know what you are doing, this warning can be disabled by setting the following variable in your configuration: SKIP_META_VIRT_SANITY_CHECK = 1 Depending on your use case, there are other distro features in meta-virtualization that may also be enabled: - xen: enables xen functionality in various packages (kernel, libvirt, etc) - kvm: enables KVM configurations in the kernel and autoloads modules - aufs: enables aufs support in docker and linux-yocto - x11: enable xen and libvirt functionality related to x11 - selinux: enables functionality in libvirt and lxc - systemd: enable systemd services and unit files (for recipes for support) - sysvinit: enable sysvinit scripts (for recipes with support) Dependencies ------------ This layer depends on: URI: git://github.com/openembedded/openembedded-core.git branch: master revision: HEAD prio: default URI: git://github.com/openembedded/meta-openembedded.git branch: master revision: HEAD layers: meta-oe meta-networking meta-filesystems meta-python BBFILE_PRIORITY_openembedded-layer = "4" Required for Xen XSM policy: URI: git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-selinux branch: master revision: HEAD prio: default Required for Ceph: URI: git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-cloud-services branch: master revision: HEAD prio: default Maintenance ----------- Send pull requests, patches, comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Maintainer: Bruce Ashfield
