This page describes how to install yocto images.
The provided images target 2GiB sdcards.
- Download the relevant image for you device
- Extract it by using the xz utility :
xz -dv image_name.bin.xz
- Burn it on a sdcard by using
- Whether win32 disk imager on Windows
- whether the dd command on linux :
dd if=image_name.bin of=/dev/sdx bs=4M
With /dev/sdx being the sdcard device (for instance /dev/sdd)
Optionally, you can use gparted to resize the second partition/FS and benefit from all the available space on your card.
Utilite SSD installation
If you have a utilite pro and wish to install the image on the SSD, you can do so by following the instructions of this paragraph.
First, you have to follow compulab wiki to create a SDcard.
Here is a quick summary (You need a Linux host) :
- Download Utilite Linux Image, the utilite_ubuntu-12.04.3_2013-12-11.tar.bz2 was successfully used for my own tests.
- Download the installation script
- Insert the SDcard and launch the script that way :
chmod +x ./dep-procedure.sh sudo SD=/dev/sdX ROOTFS_IMAGE=./utilite_ubuntu-12.04.3_2013-12-11.tar.bz2 ./dep-procedure.sh
with /dev/sdX being the SDCard device.
- Insert the SDcard in utilite and boot your device with this fresh image
- Configure Network and download my SSD XBMC image on the utilite.
- Download again the installation script
- And launch it that way :
chmod +x ./dep-procedure.sh sudo SSD=/dev/sda ROOTFS_IMAGE=./xbmc-image-utilite_ssd.tar.bz2 ./dep-procedure.sh
- When the script is finished, turn off the utilite, remove the sdcard and you are done !
You can now power on the device and enjoy your SSD…
How to use
At startup, XBMC is automatically launched, just have fun…
Be aware that :
- login is root and password is empty
- You have a shell on the serial line interface (115200n8)
- A ssh/scp server is up and running
- Your wired Ethernet (in case of utilite, the default Ethernet port is the one in the middle of the rear panel) will be configured by DHCP and you can setup wifi thanks to the XBMC nm addon
