Proprietary libraries for meta-rcar-gen3

The meta-rcar-gen3 layer of meta-renesas is supported Graphic GLES(GSX) libraries, proprietary library of multimedia, and ICCOM software. This README describes how to use these features and setting to local.conf.

There are 2 main paths: I/ Board configuration II/ Build with GLES III/ Build with Renesas multimedia libraries

Please check section II to config for GLES. Please check section III to enable Multimedia functions.

If you would like to use Linux ICCOM driver and Linux ICCOM library, please check section IV.

However, to have a completed local.conf, please also refer to Build Instruction in meta-renesas/meta-rcar-gen3/README.

In addition, these libraries are not provided with recipes. If you would like to use, you will need to get them from Renesas.

I/ Board configuration

  • Add this line to local.conf For Salvator-X board MACHINE = “salvator-x” For R-Car Starter Kit Premier(H3ULCB) board MACHINE = “h3ulcb” For R-Car Starter Kit Pro(M3ULCB) board MACHINE = “m3ulcb”

  • Set SOC family name: For H3: r8a7795 SOC_FAMILY = “r8a7795” For M3: r8a7796 SOC_FAMILY = “r8a7796” For M3N: r8a77965 SOC_FAMILY = “r8a77965”

II/ Build with GLES

    * For wayland with GSX

    1. Please copy proprietary libraries to the directory of recipes.
    2. Set local.conf the following.

            # Enable Gfx Pkgs
            MACHINE_FEATURES_append = " gsx"
            MULTI_PROVIDER_WHITELIST += "virtual/libgl virtual/egl virtual/libgles1 virtual/libgles2"

            # for Wayland/Weston
            DISTRO_FEATURES_NATIVESDK_append = " wayland"
            DISTRO_FEATURES_append = " pam"
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/libgles1 = ""
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/libgles2 = "gles-user-module"
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/egl = "libegl"
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/libgl = ""
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/mesa = ""
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_libgbm = "libgbm"
            PREFERRED_PROVIDER_libgbm-dev = "libgbm"
            BBMASK = "mesa-gl"

    3. Run 'bitbake core-image-weston'
