Linux/TDA2EVM5777: Compiling Kernel with packages, and applying changes to .config file

Part Number: TDA2EVM5777

Tool/software: Linux

Hello,

I downloaded the TDAx Linux and RTOS PROCESSOR_SDK for Vision SDK V_03_01_00_00 and compiled for linux. I would like to add packages to the rootfs and make changes to the .config file.

1. I would like to add packages like openvpn or minicom to the linux filesystem. Where can I add these packages to the rootfs?


2. I tried to manually make changes to the .config file using the command make menuconfig in the directiory <PROCESSOR_SDK>/ti_components/os_tools/linux/kernel/omap/
. When I would run the command to recompile the linux rootfs using the command make linux in the directory <PROCESSOR_SDK>/vision_sdk/build/ the .config file, in <PROCESSOR_SDK>/ti_components/os_tools/linux/kernel/omap/, would be restored to default.

Thank you,
iFer

  • Hi,

    You can try the workaround

    1. “make menuconfig” under /ti_components/os_tools/linux/kernel/omap to get your .config
    2. Use the generated .config to override original defconfig (like arch/arm/configs/ti_sdk_dra7x_release_defconfig)

  • In reply to Luke Lin:

    Hello Luke,

    Thank you for your help. I will try running "make linux" in the directory /vision_sdk/build/ and assume that will recompile the rootfs with the corret/modified .config file. (Is that correct?)

    Secondly, do you know of a way to install packages, like minicom, within the rootfs in the compile process?

    Thank you for your help,

    IFer,

    You may refer Processor SDK Linux Software Developers Guide (link below), see the chapter "Building Yocto Filesystem"

    processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php

    Thank you,

    I have downloaded and am building it now, but I noticed that the documentation in step 5 (Booting the board, under Starting your software development) pointed me to a set of different EVMs than the tda2evm5777 (link).

    How can I configure the build for tda2evm5777?

  • In reply to Luke Lin:

    Hello Luke,

    I followed the link that you sent me and in step 4 (Prepare SD card), I was able to use the prebuilt SDK and was able to get it to boot on the TDA2EVM5777.

    Unfortunately I ran into an issue when I get to the part where I am building the Yocto Filesystem. When I run the command "./build-core-sdk.sh dra7xx-evm", I get the error:

    You may use DRA746 instead. Kernel is the same for DRA746 and TDA2x
