Hi Tiny Human - Welcome to LQ.

I had to do a quick search to even find out what yocto was.

2 suggestions:

- Provide a bit more information and context when asking questions - It will attract more members who may be able to help and will help all members better understand your situation.

- My above-mentioned quick search has left me with the understanding that the Yocto Project is a framework (for lack of a better word) for compiling linux for embedded systems. You may have more luck posting this to the Embedded Systems sub-forum on Linux - Hardware.

Cheers and best of luck !

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Might start at the source.

"Welcome to the Yocto Project! The Yocto Project is an open-source collaboration project whose focus is developers of embedded Linux systems. Among other things, the Yocto Project uses a build host based on the OpenEmbedded (OE) project, which uses the BitBake tool, to construct complete Linux images. The BitBake and OE components are combined together to form a reference build host, historically known as Poky (Pah-key).

If you do not have a system that runs Linux and you want to give the Yocto Project a test run, you might consider using the Yocto Project Build Appliance. The Build Appliance allows you to build and boot a custom embedded Linux image with the Yocto Project using a non-Linux development system. See the Yocto Project Build Appliance for more information."
