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)

1 STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.1.0 release[edit]

  • The STM32MP1 OpenSTLinux distribution is delivered through a manifest repository location and a manifest revision (openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-10-09).
  • 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-v1.1.0 release
Installation
$ cd <working directory path>/Distribution-Package
  • Create the OpenSTLinux distribution installation sub-directory:
$ mkdir openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-10-09 
$ cd openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-10-09
  • Initialize repo in the current directory (More details on 'repo init' here).
$ repo init -u https://github.com/STMicroelectronics/oe-manifest.git -b refs/tags/openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-10-09

Note: "ERROR 404" may appear during "repo init" command without any impact on the process

  • Synchronize the local project directories with the remote repositories specified in the manifest (more details on 'repo sync' here)
$ repo sync

Note: Distribution package needs around 140MB to be installed (and around 25GB once distribution package is compiled).

Release note

Details about the content of this software package are available in the associated STM32MP15 ecosystem release note.
