1 Disclaimers[edit]

STMicroelectronics packages repository service is provided for evaluation purpose only, and therefore not approved for use in production.
The package licenses hosted in these repositories can be found here: OpenSTLinux licenses.
Command outputs described in this document may slightly vary depending on tools version.

1.1 Description[edit]

OpenSTLinux provides a package repository service hosted at the non-browsable URL http://packages.openstlinux.st.com. The package repository service is designed for STM32MP157C-DK2 STM32MP157x-DKx More info green.png, STM32MP157x-EV1 More info green.png and STM32MP135F-DK Warning.png boards and is enabled by default in the Starter Package.

Warning white.png Warning
Some packages provided in the OpenSTLinux distribution can't be installed or run onto the STM32MP135F-DK Warning.png board. This mainly concerns graphical and related packages because of hardware technical characteristics which differ from STM32MP157x-DKx More info green.png and STM32MP157x-EV1 More info green.png boards.

1.2 Organization[edit]

Within each repository, packages are organized in two three groups (a.k.a components in the APT terminology):

  • the main group contains a wide selection of packages whose installation is automatically tested by STMicroelectronics
  • the untested group contains all the other packages that can be built using the bitbake world command. However their installation is not guaranteed.
A third group named updates is reserved for future use.

1.3 Limitations[edit]

Packages repository service doesn't include the packages that are shipped in the rootfs image, nor the BSP components (TF-A, U-Boot, Linux and OP-TEE). They can be installed only from the Starter Package using the STM32CubeProgrammer.

rootfs available space is about 60MB by default. For a better experience it is recommended to flash the Starter Package using the "extensible" flashlayout (*-extensible.tsv).
Extensible flashlayout does not flash userfs partition to extend the rootfs partition to the size of the sdcard.

2 Usage[edit]

2.1 Prequisite[edit]

We assume your board has an internet connection either through the network cable or through a WiFi connection.


2.2 Apt[edit]

OpenSTLinux packages can be handled using apt-* utilities, which are the same utilities used on a Debian system. The first apt-* command that must be run before any other is:

 
 apt-get update
 The software package is provided AS IS, and by downloading it, you agree to be

3 How to activate a local package repository[edit]

3.1 Prerequisite[edit]

Even if Package repository for OpenSTLinux offers lots of and various packages, you may need to use a local and personnal package repository. To use Using a local and personnal personal package repository is a 'smart' and 'quick' way to update the STM32MP15_Discovery_kits_-_Starter _ Package with your developments.

A local package repository is a collection of *.deb organized such apt needs it. The local repository should provide Packages metafiles.

Natively OpenEmbedded/Yocto build system is able to generate a valid package repository (by using bitbake package-index command listed below). So first Install the STM32MP1 OpenSTLinux distribution.

3.2 Update the repo package indexes[edit]

Execute the bitbake package-index command:

 
 cd [your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>
  bitbake package-index

3.3 HTTP server execution on the computer[edit]

SimpleHTTPserver python application is already installed on the board with the OpenSTLinux distribution. You just need to launch this application on your host computer, in the "[your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>/tmp-glibc/deploy/deb" folder:

 cd [your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>/tmp-glibc/deploy/deb
 python -m SimpleHTTPServer&

3.4 How to use the local OpenSTLinux Distribution[edit]

We use the physical IP address of the HTTP server we launched above to configure APT. That means this {{<IP>}} address should be defined as static on the host computer.
You can now configure the APT tool directly on the target via a Linux console:

 echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/stm32mp1 /" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
 echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/all /" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
 echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/cortexa7t2hf-neon-vfpv4 /" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
 echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/cortexa7hf-neon-vfpv4 /"  >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list

In the above example, [trusted=yes] has been specified because the package manifest Release is not signed.

Then you can run the command to synchronize the local packages index:

 
 apt-get update
 The software package is provided AS IS, and by downloading it, you agree to be
 bound to the terms of the software license agreement (SLA).

===Description===
OpenSTLinux provides a package repository service hosted at the non-browsable URL <nowiki>http://packages.openstlinux.st.com</nowiki>.
The package repository service is designed for ''STM32MP157C-DK2'' {{Board | type=157x-DKx | name=short}}'', ''{{Board | type=157x-EV1 | name=short}}'' and {{Board | type=135F-DK | name=short}} boards and is enabled by default in the [[STM32MP15_Discovery_kits_-_:Category:Starter_Package|Starter Package]].

* the '''untested''' group contains all the other packages that can be built using the <code>bitbake world</code> command. However their installation is not guaranteed.

A third group named '''updates''' is reserved for future use.
* the '''updates''' group contains additional packages not included in the [[OpenSTLinux_distribution|OpenSTLinux distribution releases]] and updated packages. This group is managed by a dedicated layer available through github®. Further details are available by following the github® link: https://github.com/STMicroelectronics/meta-st-pkgrepo-updates.

We assume your board has an internet connection either through the network cable or through a WiFi connection.

== How to activate a local package repository ==
===Prerequisite===
Even if ''Package repository for OpenSTLinux'' offers lots of and various packages, you may need to use a local and personnal package repository. To use Using a local and personnalpersonal package repository is a 'smart' and 'quick' way to update the [[STM32MP15_Discovery_kits_-_Starter_Package:Category:Starter_Package|Starter Package]] with your developments.

A local package repository is a collection of *.deb organized such <code>apt</code> needs it. The local repository should provide ''Packages'' metafiles.

Natively OpenEmbedded/Yocto build system is able to generate a valid package repository (by using <code>bitbake package-index</code> command listed below). 
So first [[STM32MP1 Distribution Package - OpenSTLinux distribution#Download|Install the STM32MP1 OpenSTLinux distribution]].

===Update the repo package indexes===
Execute the <code>bitbake package-index</code> command:

  {{PC$}} cd [your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>

  {{PC$}} bitbake package-index

===HTTP server execution on the computer===
'''SimpleHTTPserver''' python application is already installed on the board with the OpenSTLinux distribution. You just need to launch this application on your host computer, in the "[your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>/tmp-glibc/deploy/deb" folder:

 {{PC$}} cd [your STM32MP1 Distribution path]/build-<DISTRO>-<MACHINE>/tmp-glibc/deploy/deb
 {{PC$}} python -m SimpleHTTPServer&

===How to use the local OpenSTLinux Distribution===
We use the physical IP address of the HTTP server we launched above to configure APT. That means this {{<IP>}} address should be defined as static on the host computer.<br/>

You can now configure the APT tool directly on the target via a Linux console:

 {{Board$}} echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/stm32mp1 /" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
 {{Board$}} echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/all /" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
 {{Board$}} echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/cortexa7t2hf-neon-vfpv4 /" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list{{Board$}} echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://<IP>:8000/cortexa7hf-neon-vfpv4 /"  >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/my_custom.list
In the above example, '''[trusted=yes]''' has been specified because the package manifest '''Release''' is not signed.<br/>


Then you can run the command to synchronize the local packages index:

  {{Board$}} apt-get update
