  1. proposal for first try integration of meta-qt5 layer
  2. use a dizzy branch of meta-qt5 to correspond with poky and meta-oe dizzy branches from agl
  3. branch: dizzy
  4. revision: adeca0db212d61a933d7952ad44ea1064cfca747
  5. add the qt5 components with own packagegroups under /meta-agl/meta-agl/recipes-ivi

readme meta-qt5 integration

1. for the first try of integration of qt5 into agl-image-ivi we take:

get git url for agl from here and see the how to use:;a=blob;;h=a92dfe8de4e6614a8d4dbbaaddbccaa06f1e4c75;hb=4e6823fb7a9763715fb554cfb0df2dc318d741a7 URI: branch: dizzy revision: 5f0d25152bac2d3798663a4ebfdd2df24060f153

URI: layer: meta-oe branch: dizzy revision: 853dcfa0d618dc26bd27b3a1b49494b98d6eee97 ## The Renesas R-Car Gen2 (Porter) board depends in addition on: ## URI: branch: agl-1.0-bsp-1.8.0 revision: 0a69b07cfca17d1435f2bc7bf779139c5fac09a3 URI: branch: dizzy revision: adeca0db212d61a933d7952ad44ea1064cfca747 —————————————————————————————————————- 2. modify the bblayers.conf and the local.conf in your build/conf directory to set the build config 2.1 in bblayers.conf, add the additional layers for qt: these are: -meta-openembedded/meta-ruby -meta-qt5 so your bblayers.conf might look like: # LAYER_CONF_VERSION is increased each time build/conf/bblayers.conf # changes incompatibly LCONF_VERSION = “6” BBPATH = “${TOPDIR}” BBFILES ?= “” BBLAYERS ?= “ \ /your/path/to/project/poky/meta \ /your/path/to/project/poky/meta-yocto \ /your/path/to/project/poky/meta-yocto-bsp \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-openembedded/meta-oe \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-openembedded/meta-ruby \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-qt5 \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-agl/meta-agl \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-agl/meta-agl-bsp \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-renesas \ /your/path/to/project/poky/../meta-renesas/meta-rcar-gen2 \ ” BBLAYERS_NON_REMOVABLE ?= “ \ /your/path/to/project/poky/meta \ /your/path/to/project/poky/meta-yocto \ /your/path/to/project/meta-agl/meta-agl \ ” 2.2 local.conf, set the machine to “porter”: #MACHINE ?= “beaglebone” #MACHINE ?= “genericx86” #MACHINE ?= “genericx86-64” #MACHINE ?= “mpc8315e-rdb” #MACHINE ?= “edgerouter” MACHINE ?= “porter” 2.3 for the integration of qt and qt examples i have added two packagegroups add new packagegroups for qt5 integration

  1. …../meta-agl/meta-agl/recipes-ivi/packagegroups/
    1. which contains the qt5 packages to be used for agl


  1. which contains the qt5 examples packages to be used for agl

to make qt and qt examples part of your image, add the two new packagegroup files to -…../meta-agl/meta-agl/recipes-ivi/packagegroups/ -which includes all the ivi packagegroup files ————————————————————————————————————– 3. to run a successful build you also might have to fix the following build problems 3.1 with the version i have used for qt integration i had the following build problem /fix the build problem of gstreamer bbappend version in meta renesas


I solved the problem of using the component version XXX_1.2.3.bbappend by changing it to wildcard format XXX_%.bbappend. The problem originally occured by using the new poky version. For the future we have to see if this fix is applicable

3.2 modified file for gstreamer1.0-plugins-base problem

in file:  ...../meta-renesas/meta-rcar-gen2/recipes-multimedia/gstreamer/gstreamer1.0-plugins-base_%.bbappend
change do_configure
do_configure() {
  ./ --noconfigure
do_configure() {
  (cd ${S} && ./ --noconfigure)

3.3 add some config options in

add icu in, because its necessary to have qtwebkit … PACKAGECONFIG_ICU ?= “icu” … PACKAGECONFIG ?= “ \ … ${PACKAGECONFIG_ICU} \ ” add examples in, because its necessary to have qt examples in rootfs



4. to build the agl-image-ivi use the following command bitbake agl-image-ivi

5. run qt examples

to run a qt example you have to use a command like:

./analogclock -platform wayland-egl

where you have also have to pass the platform to be used

check platforms available ls /usr/lib/qt5/plugins/platforms/ ————————————————————————————————————— 6. known issues 6.1 with the first integration qtwebkit example applications do crash with seg fault. this seems to be a problem in qtwebkit!! to be investigated later!! ==== Maintainer(s) ==== ^ Name ^ Email ^ Area of Interest ^ | | | None | ==== Contributors ==== ^ Name ^ Email ^ Area of Interest ^ | | | None |
