Hi Thomas,

The recipes of LS1 support have been upstream into community meta-fsl-arm layer(dizzy and master). As a start, I recommend you use QorIQ SDK, since there are detailed documents that introduces Yocto usage, LS1 targets and supported features.

In future, you might switch to use the community fsl-arm layer for your product development, the PPC stuffs will be excluded.

Best Regards,

Subject: [meta-freescale] QorIQ_SDK or Yocto Project with meta-fsl-arm

I recently started to work with the QorIQ LS1021atwr development board. In future I have to build a custom designed hardware, so I try to get as familar as possible with the Yocto Project.
Until now I am still not sure if it is better to start with the QorIQ_SDK or not. I tried to change the remote repository from git.freescale to git.yoctoproject and recogniced a lot of changes that have to be merged. On the other hand I tried to cleanup/remove the PPC stuff from the SDK but then I had some dependency problems that I was not yet able to solve.
As I prefer fetch git-updates I plan to go on with the plain yocto project and the meta-fsl-arm BSP. Are there any drawbacks that I might not realized until now? I am thinking about the cross compile toolchain or similar stuff but not the missing things like fsl-images. Because these tools are handled by bitbake I am not familiar with the toolcahin right now.
