 +===== Preface =====
 +<WRAP info round>
 +The instructions on this page have been tested on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit in a VMWare virtual machine.
 +The //meta-tq// layer extends the //Yocto Project'​s//​ reference system //Poky// to provide support for a selection of TQ Embedded CPU Modules, including the TQMa8Xx.
 +The instructions on this page refer to the BSP and ancillary tools listed in the following table:
 +^ BSP Revision ​ ^  0001  ^
 +^ ++ci-meta-tq release|\\ [[https://​​tq-systems/​ci-meta-tq]]++ ​ |  [[https://​​tq-systems/​ci-meta-tq/​tree/​rocko-tqma8x]] ​ |
 +^ Yocto Project / Poky Release ​ |  2.4.4 - Rocko  | 
 +^ Target machine((i.e. value for [[https://​​docs/​2.4.4/​ref-manual/​ref-manual.html#​var-MACHINE|MACHINE]] variable)) ​ |  tqma8qx-mba8qx ​ | 
 +^ U-Boot ​ |  2017.03 ​ |
 +^ Linux Kernel ​ |  4.9.88 ​ |
 +<WRAP important round>​It'​s strongly recommended to use **git** for downloading both the //Yocto Project / Poky// Release as well as //meta-tq// (instead of downloading archives and extracting them).</​WRAP>​
 +<WRAP info round>
 +The goal of these wiki pages is to get you started using //meta-tq// with the STKa8Xx , so instead of reinventing the wheel we will adhere to the very compact [[https://​​docs/​2.4.4/​yocto-project-qs/​yocto-project-qs.html|Yocto Project Quick Start]] and supply details specific to the STKa8Xx where necessary.\\
 +For further details regarding //Yocto Project// 2.4.4 - Rocko please refer to its [[https://​​documentation/​archived|official documentation]].
 +===== Prerequisites ​ =====
 +//Yocto Project / Poky// requires a Linux build host, so first of all you need a development workstation (or a virtual machine((for testing purposes //Yocto Project// provides a ready to use virtual machine called [[https://​​tools-resources/​projects/​build-appliance|Build Appliance]]))) with a (preferably) recent Linux distribution installed.
 +Please refer to section [[https://​​docs/​2.4.4/​yocto-project-qs/​yocto-project-qs.html#​the-linux-distro|The Linux Distribution]] of the //Yocto Project Quick Start// for supported linux distributions and section [[https://​​docs/​2.4.4/​yocto-project-qs/​yocto-project-qs.html#​packages|The Build Host Packages]] for required build host packages for those distributions.
 +Although not required by //Yocto Project / Poky//, we also recommend to configure and run a [[en:​tftp|tftp server]] (for image download / update) and an [[en:​nfs|nfs server]] (for network mounted root filesystem) on your development host.
 +===== Yocto Project / Poky set-up =====
 +The [[https://​​docs/​2.4.4/​yocto-project-qs/​yocto-project-qs.html|Yocto Project Quick Start]] document explains how to set up //Yocto Project / Poky// and how to build images using the //​meta-intel//​ layer.
 +Using this as a guideline, the following table describes how to use the //​ci-meta-tq//​ layer for the STKa8Xx.

 +This section provides step-by-step instructions for Building an Image for STKa8Xx
 +</​WRAP><​WRAP important round>
 +To sucessfully build an image for hardware you have to carry out steps from both subsections((subsection headings may be missing in //Yocto Project Quick Start// (depends on //Poky// version) )) as follows.</​WRAP><​WRAP block>
 +==== Building an Image for Hardware ====
 +1. Create a Local Copy of the //​ci-meta-tq//​ Repository:
 +$ git clone --branch=rocko-tqma8x --recurse-submodules https://​​tq-systems/​ci-meta-tq.git
 +2. Configure the Build:
 +$ cd ci-meta-tq
 +$ source -b tqma8xx_build -e wayland
 +$ echo '​MACHINE = "​tqma8qx-mba8qx"'​ >> conf/​local.conf
 +3. Build an Image for STKa8Xx:
 +$ bitbake tq-image-qt5
 +<wrap help round center 80%>The resulting image is ''​tmp/​deploy/​images/​tqma8qx-mba8qx/​tq-image-qt5-tqma8qx-mba8qx.wic''</​wrap>​\\ ​
 +4. Write the Image((''​TARGET_DEVICE''​ has to be an SD card))
 +$ sudo dd if=tmp/​deploy/​images/​tqma8qx-mba8x/​tq-image-qt5-tqma8qx-mba8qx.wic of=TARGET_DEVICE
 +5. Boot the STKa8Xx from SD card (cf. [[en:​arm:​tqma8xx:​mba8xx:​dip_switches|MBa8Xx DIP switch settings]])
