[Developer] Tizen Common Running on the HummingBoard-i2eX (Freescale i.MX6 ARM SoC)

Development board lovers, some news for you today. Our friend Leon, with the assistance of his colleagues in the Konsulko Group, has successfully built Tizen:Common with Linux kernel 3.14.14 using Yocto. The target dev board is the HummingBoard-i2eX (Freescale i.MX6 SoC) and interestingly hardware accelerated graphics is supported in Wayland/Weston 1.6.
He used the existing fixes at the tizen-distro for Raspberry Pi 2 and we applied several changes:

  • EGL support was enabled in Wayland/Weston recipes
  • Vivante EGL and GAL2D compositor support was added
  • Systemd services were modified to launch Weston with hardware graphics acceleration



Information about the procedure can be found at the HummingBoard Building Tizen:Common with Yocto Wiki.
