    Yocto Layer Change Relevant to RIoTboard

    stmorgan

      In the course of doing some RIoTboard research, I discovered something that may be of interest to anyone hoping to use more recent Yocto releases for development.  I have compiled a table of RIoTboard information for BSP versions from the Freescale release notes:

      The crucial thing to note is the change in BSP Version 2.2 in the Layer column where meta-fsl-arm-extra becomes meta-freescale-3rdparty.  This represents a strategic decision that is documented here:

      I have not tested the 2.2 release, but it's worth keeping in mind for this and subsequent releases.
