Chromium on TX8M¶
You are able to integrate Chromium into your image to get a graphics-accelerated browser on your StarterKit.
Set up your build-directory with these settings:
DISTRO=fsl-imx-xwayland MACHINE=tx8m-xxxx source karo-nxp-release.sh -b <build-dir>
Inside your build directory add this to conf/local.conf:
CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "chromium-ozone-wayland"
Build the QT5.9 image:
Before starting a build, you should consider enabling the SSTATE CACHE to speedup the build process.
When your build has finished, flash your module with the image. See flashing-images.
When booting your previously flashed module, the Weston desktop should come up.
Plug a USB-hub into your StarterKit’s USB host port and insert keyboard, mouse and/or touchscreen. Open the terminal (icon in top-left corner), or connect via the Terminal from your host computer. The desktop comes up as user root, so you have to start Chromium with an extra argument.
