Integrating Bluedroid stack to the board


#1

Hi,

I am using WP76xx as the processor and using Legato 17.09 with related toolchain.

I am trying to integrate Bluedroid stack to the board so that I can start using it for some BT development. I was planning to use BlueZ but some changes from higher ups reccomended using Bluedroid.

How practical is this ?

Anyways, I have gone ahead with trying. I downloaded Bluedroid fro Linux, a project from GIT, and created a WLP18xx sub-folder in the devices folder, put in my own makefile and libbt-vendor-ti.c[The second one from online] and cross-compiled the same using the toolchain associated to Legato 17.09.
It compiled without issue and I placed executables in /tmp folder of the target and associated libraries in /usr/lib[using overlayfs].

When I run the bdt app I am getting “Bluetooth not enabled. Plz enable it” message. Using rfkill didnot reveal any bluetooth devices.

I downloaded and ran the BluetoothUtil app; hoping it will bring up the drivers and associated processes. I am met with the error ::

Did you rebuild the kernel with bluetooth support?


#3

Hi,

I was using a Kernel provided by the offshore guys. So no; I am trying to build the kernel as stated in:

I have downloaded the Legato distribution: Legato-Dist-Source-mdm9x28-SWI9X07Y_02.11.00.00.tar.bz2
And I am following the steps as mentioned in the GIT page above.

Now; I am faced with:
./tmp/log/cooker/swi-mdm9x28/20180220124554.log:ERROR: linux-yocto was skipped: incompatible with machine swi-mdm9x28 (not in COMPATIBLE_MACHINE)

PS: I am new to building kernels and Yocto recipes and all, so IF my question is about something way too obvious please dont be cross and all.

@dfrey

It turns out I had to use linux-quic instead of linux-yocto and menuconfig instead of kernel_configme
in:
bitbake linux-yocto -c kernel_configme -f

Is this fine ?


#5

I have completed the build, and have populated the tmp/deploy/images/swi-mdm9x28 folder.

Using the final command, fdt yocto_wp76xx.4k.cwe seems to fail:
