STM32MP1 Distribution Package - OpenSTLinux distribution
This article aims to give the following information:
- How to download and install the latest OpenSTLinux distribution for the STM32 microprocessors Series
- Where to find the associated release note
- Where to find the previous releases (archives)
|For more specific information, go through the Distribution Package article relative to your STM32 microprocessors Series: Category:Distribution Package|
- The STM32MP1 OpenSTLinux distribution is delivered through a manifest repository location and a manifest revision (openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-02-20).
- The installation relies on the repo command. In case the Repo tool (a Google-built repository management tool that runs on top of Git) is not yet installed and configured on the host PC, refer to the PC prerequisites article.
- The OpenSTLinux distribution is massively using open source software (OSS) packages that are downloaded from a variety of open source repositories; so it is required that the IT infrastructure proxies do not forbid such accesses. If some proxy-related issues are suspected, refer to the How to avoid proxy issues article.
- Install the STM32MP1 OpenSTLinux distribution
|STM32MP1 Distribution Package OpenSTLinux distribution - STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0 release|
$ cd <working directory path>/Distribution-Package
$ mkdir openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-02-20 $ cd openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-02-20
The below command downloads (in the .repo directory) the latest repo source code and a manifest file (default.xml)) that describes the directory structure of the repositories for OpenSTLinux.
The -u option specifies the manifest repository location, while the -b option specifies its branch.
Note1: "ERROR 404" may appear during "repo init" command without any impact on the process
machine github.com login "github login" password "github password"
If a local project does not yet exist, the command clones a new local directory from the remote repository and sets up tracking branches as specified in the manifest.
If the local project already exists, the command updates the remote branches and rebases any new local changes on top of the new remote changes.
$ repo sync
Details about the content of this software package are available in the associated STM32MP15 ecosystem release note.
If interested in previous releases, go through the archives of the ecosystem release note.
- The OpenSTLinux distribution installation directory is in the <Distribution Package installation directory>, and is named openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-02-20:
