Galileo Build Appliance - Gnome

Published by AlexT
Based on openSUSE 12.3 64-bit x86

Update 02-11-2014: As there’s no longer that much interest for this sort of a solution from the Galileo Community,I’m no longer updating the appliance. Feel free to clone it for your needs or contact me through the forum thread mentioned below.

This is a VM equipped for building the Intel® Galileo-related software, such as Linux images and firmware.

It also contains three BSP versions right away, 0.7.5 (previous official), 1.0.0 (current official) and 1.0.1 (current latest), see /home/galileo/bsp.
Empty directory is created for you to use as a Linux compilation playground. Just unpack the respective BSP package, then change dir to /home/galileo/yocto and unpack the meta_clanton_* file using "tar xzvf ".

Upon first boot the VM will ask you for your timezone. There may be some glitch with GNOME Terminal looking strange after first boot – just reboot the VM if you face that, after that if will be ok for good.

I recommend allocating at least 2GB RAM and at least 2 vCPU for the VM + setting the values for both “BB_NUMBER_THREADS” and “PARALLEL_MAKE” variables to “2” in your Yocto conf/local.conf file created by the BSP’s script to avoid resource starvation and possible build failures.

Please share your feedback in the Galileo community forum thread here:
