2014-05-06linux-yocto-custom: provide defconfig guidanceBruce Ashfield
As reported by Andrea, defconfigs created with savedefconfig should specify their expansion mode as "--alldefconfig' for custom yocto recipes. To ensure that this is documented, we can add a comment in the skeleton recipe.

2014-03-17linux-yocto-custom: Use SRCREV_machineDarren Hart
The Yocto kernel tools look for SRCREV_machine in do_validate_branches, if it's empty, it just returns and silently continues. This likely needs at least a warning. However, this recipe should be using SRCREV_machine, and not just SRCREV.

2014-01-02Replace one-line DESCRIPTION with SUMMARYPaul Eggleton
A lot of our recipes had short one-line DESCRIPTION values and no SUMMARY value set. In this case it's much better to just set SUMMARY since DESCRIPTION is defaulted from SUMMARY anyway and then the SUMMARY is at least useful. I also took the opportunity to fix up a lot of the new SUMMARY values, making them concisely explain the function of the recipe / package where possible.

2013-08-13meta-skeleton: Add busybox config fragment exampleSaul Wold
This shows an example of the config fragment support that both the linux-yocto and busybox recipes use. This example is specific to busybox. By adding busybox CONFIG options into a .cfg file and then adding that .cfg file to SRC_URI the script will correctly handle these CONFIG options during the do_configure task. The script uses a last-in wins method.

2012-08-07linux-yocto-custom: Clarify usage and clear COMPATIBLE_MACHINEDarren Hart
There has been some confusion over proper use of the linux-yocto-custom recipe. It is not intended to build as is from meta-skeleton. It should be modified via a bbappend file to provide a Linux kernel config at the very least. Update the commentary to make this requirement more explicit. Add some additional detail about how to create a bbappend file and how and when to modify the various variables. Clear COMPATIBLE_MACHINE so bitbake will not attempt to build the recipe unless the user explicitly adds there machine to the variable, which should encourage them to read the recipe comments before attempting to build it.

2012-06-18meta-skeleton: add linux-yocto-custom reference recipeBruce Ashfield
Adding a skeleton/refrence recipe for using a subset of the yocto kernel tools against kernel git repositories. Sample/reference configuration fragments, features and a patch are provided and documented in the recipe. From the recipe itself: Provides an example/minimal kernel recipe that uses the linux-yocto and oe-core kernel classes to apply a subset of yocto kernel management to git managed kernel repositories. Notes: kconfig(s): the kernel must be configured with a defconfig, or via configuration fragment(s). Either of these can be added via bbappend. patches: patches can be merged into to the source git tree itself, added using standard bbappend syntax or controlled via .scc feature descriptions (also via bbappends) example configuration addition: SRC_URI += "file://smp.cfg" example patch addition (for kernel v3.4 only): SRC_URI += "file://0001-linux-version-tweak.patch example feature addition (for kernel v3.4 only): SRC_URI += "file://feature.scc" Warning: Building the sample kernel tree ( without providing any configuration will result in build or boot errors. This is not a bug it is a required element for creating a valid kernel.

Modified the original skeleton a lot to make it as easy as possible, just use posix shell command, and have tested it with core-image-minimal. * The skeleton implements the following actions: - start, stop, restart, status, try-restart and force-reload. # force-reload is a alias of try-restart. - not implements reload, since only a few programs have it, just leave it as placeholder. * Add /usr/sbin/skeleton-test to test /etc/init.d/skeleton * The /etc/init.d/skeleton can be run and output the example messages: 1) #./skeleton start (test start) Starting skeleton ... 2) #./skeleton start (test start again when running) skeleton already running (1078). 3) #./skeleton status (test status when running) skeleton is running (1078). 4) #./skeleton stop (test stop) Stopped skeleton (1078). 5) #./skeleton stop (test stop again) skeleton is not running; none killed. 6) #./skeleton status (test status when stopped) skeleton is not running. 7) #./skeleton restart (test restart when running) Stopped skeleton (1128).
