Install gstreamer in WP8548



I want to install the gstreamer in WP8548. When I tried with opkg, I got the error as seen in the screenshot. Please let me know how to put the lock file in place.

Also let me know if there is any other way of compiling gstreamer source and installing it.


I was surprised to learn that opkg is in the root file system since it was my understanding that we don’t currently have any package management on our version of yocto (other than what is provided by the legato framework). I checked with the person who maintains these sorts of things and he confirmed that opkg shouldn’t be in the root filesystem and isn’t supported.

So if you want to install gstreamer, you will have to build it from source unfortunately.
