Build from Source

Download and Test Build SDK

The following instructions assume you are running Linux and are well versed in using a terminal. On any other operating system we recommend installing VirtualBox from or any other virtualization system that lets you run a Linux distribution.

  • Download, unpack and install the NXP-QoriQ Linux SDK v2.0 source.
  • Download and install the NXP-QoriQ Linux SDK v2.0 17.03 Upgrade.
  • Change into your SDK directory using the linux console.
  • Run . ./fsl-setup-env -m ls1012frdm
  • Accept the EULA, you should now have been transferred into a directory called build_ls1012afrdm.
  • Verify your installation state by running bitbake fsl-image-core (This will take a long time, depending on your system)

If bitbake runs through without major errors, your installation of the Yocto SDK has been successful.

Note: The image that resulted from this test-build carries no Oxalis specific customizations but might be bootable on your board (not supported).

Get Oxalis Specific SDK

  • Execute the following:
    $ cd <sdk-install-dir>/
    $ mkdir systart
    $ cd systart
    $ git clone
    $ source meta-systart-oxalis/scripts/oxalis-setup-env
  • You should now have been switched into a new build directory ie <build-dri>
    $ <sdk-install-dir>/build_oxalisls1012a


  • From here bitbake should be able to build these images:
    • oxalis-image-kernelitb: Kernel, U-Boot and minimal Linux environment (BusyBox) ramdisk in U-Boot loadable format. Recomended Target.
    • oxalis-image-core: RootFS image with core components
    • oxalis-image-full: RootFS with full content of the yocto distribution, including GUI (very large, extreme build times, not supported).
  • To start build, run $ bitbake oxalis-image-kernelitb

  • After the build you can find the images in: <sdk-install-dir>/<build-dir>/tmp/deploy/images/ls1012aoxalis/
