Improving the flexibility of your entire stack can be frustrating
Yocto Project offers great value by enabling highly customized operating systems, free of bulk, and specifically configured to your target hardware. We understand it’s not the easiest tool to master, so we’ve put something together that should help you out.
This series of free resources will guide you through building a custom operating system (OS) with Yocto Project, so your platform has the flexibility to scale.
You’ll learn how to:
✔ Download Yocto and configure it to your hardware
✔ Build a Linux image with Yocto
✔ Include custom executables and libraries in your image
What you need to know when building a custom OS with Yocto Project
The good news
Building an embedded Linux system image with Yocto Project is an open source and cost-effective solution to your specific operating system needs.
The bad news
Active development in Yocto can be difficult, as operations sometimes corrupt files or ignore changes to them. It is often wiser to work on developing changes to components outside of Yocto, and integrate them into your image, merging updates with the Yocto-connected branch at regular intervals.
All that said, Yocto is an incredibly flexible, and incredibly powerful tool. It is not for everyone, but if you have read this far and are still interested, it may be for you.
Guidance from Yocto experts
Improve your products’ flexibility and efficiency through custom Yocto development with engineering support from DornerWorks.
We’ve helped companies in aerospace and defense build the systems their hardware needed to operate correctly. We’ve guided industrial applications, building flexible foundations for a fleet of IoT connected machines. We can do the same for you, or help you innovate in an entirely new direction.
