    Hi Stephan,

    I tried your latest image and it works very well on my WB Quad.

    I also tried to make my own yocto image following your build environment post from december, and I have some questions about it.

    First, I was able to build an image with your instructions, one issue I have: when I start playback of a h264/ac3 mkv, I hear sound, but no video, the screen shows something resembling a gui skin (like a grey wall). Those videos play flawless with your provided image. When I have time I am going to look through logs and provide some if possible.

    But my other issue with your build environment instructions: you obviously polish the yocto image with additional stuff like automount/splash screen and other things that go beyond your build instructions.

    As far as I understand yocto so far, I edited the local.conf in ~/xbmc-bsp/build/conf/local.conf like the following:

    MACHINE = 'wandboard-quad'
    DISTRO ?= 'poky'
    DISTRO_FEATURES_DEFAULT="alsa argp bluetooth ext2 irda largefile pcmcia usbgadget usbhost wifi xattr nfs zeroconf pci smbfs"
                        multiarch systemd"
    PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_deb"
    EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "debug-tweaks"
    USER_CLASSES ?= "buildstats image-mklibs image-prelink"
    PATCHRESOLVE = "noop"
        STOPTASKS,${TMPDIR},1G,100K \
        STOPTASKS,${DL_DIR},1G,100K \
        STOPTASKS,${SSTATE_DIR},1G,100K \
        ABORT,${TMPDIR},100M,1K \
        ABORT,${DL_DIR},100M,1K \
    CONF_VERSION = "1"
    DEFAULTTUNE ?= "cortexa9thf-neon"
    EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "package-management dev-pkgs splash"
    IMAGE_INSTALL += "dpkg apt"
    do_rootfs[depends] += "u-boot:do_deploy"
    BOOT_SCRIPTS = "bootscript-${MACHINE}:boot.scr"
    PARALLEL_MAKE = '-j 4'

    It would be helpful to also have those steps and .conf’s to make an image equivalent of your polished image, to make a more customized build with added packages and things like that.

    Unless your build environment instruction is supposed to make an exact image like yours and I made an error, do point it out please. 🙂

    Thank you.


    Hi hendrack

    Have you exactly followed the instructions from this post ?
    I ask because you should really get the same image as the one I provide.
    The only operation I perform out of yocto build is the sdcard partition resizing…
    Should not be a big deal we will find out the issue…
