The documentation for the Yocto project is very good, make sure you checkit:



The folder it's asking for is the location of the toolchain. If you are starting, I would recommend to install it from the script. http://downloads.yoctoproject.org/releases/yocto/yocto-2.3/toolchain/

The default location is /opt/poky/2.3. If you accept that, your settings for the plugin will be:

  • Select Standalone pre-built toolchain
  • Toolchain Root Location: /opt/poky/2.3
  • Sysroot Location: /opt/poky/2.3/sysroots
  • Target Architecture: armvahf-neon-poky-linux-genueabi (this is the one I use, it can change for you depending of the toolchain that you install)
  • Thanks, the yocto is installed in my VM of Centos 7. The problem that I don't find the default directory and /opt/ – YAcaCsh Sep 15 '17 at 14:23
  • The poky folder contains all the necessary contents, but I cannot find the toolchain directory. How can I do this? – YAcaCsh Sep 15 '17 at 14:38
  • Also, how can I install SDK. I used the command runqemu but does not work to install it in /poky folder. – YAcaCsh Sep 15 '17 at 14:48
  • @YAcaCsh I think you still have some Yocto concepts unclear. Yocto is powerful and well documented but it takes time to learn. I would read the getting started guide if you haven't already. The poky folder that you install with metadata and you use to compile and OS is different to the /opt/poky that you create when you install the toolchain with the script. – Katu Sep 15 '17 at 15:24
  • thank you, I got your point, but I don't know exactly how to install the SDK. I followed the SDK installation but the problem that I tried to run script in Centos7 and still not working. – YAcaCsh Sep 18 '17 at 14:08
