Adding A SSH Server

A SSH server can be a very useful thing to have in a embedded Linux build. It enables things such as scp (secure copy, allowing you to copy files between the embedded device to a development computer over the internet).

You should be able to add a SSH server by adding the following line to your build/conf/local.conf file.

 1  EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "ssh-server-openssh" 

Add Python To A Build

Add the following line of code to your build/conf/local.conf file:

 1  IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " python-core" 

Add Boost To A Build

Add the following line of code to your build/conf/local.conf file:

 1  IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " boost" 

When adding boost, it is work recreating the SDK so that you have the available libraries for cross-compiling.

Adding Valgrind To Build

Valgrind is provided under meta/recipes-devtools/valgrind. As of Nov 2017, Valgrind v3.12.0 is supported. Valgrind can be added to your Yocto image by adding the following line of code to your build/conf/local.conf file:

 1  IMAGE_INSTALL += " valgrind"
