To install a Digi Embedded Yocto toolchain, you need a development machine with at least:
Linux 64-bit system (Ubuntu 14.04 or Ubuntu 16.04)
4 CPU cores
4 GB of RAM
Between 2 GB and 10 GB of free disk space, depending on platform
|Before starting development for your ConnectCore platform, make sure your device is correctly connected, powered, and running. See Step 2 - Set up the hardware and Step 3 - Program the Yocto firmware.|
Download and install the toolchain
|If you already installed a toolchain with the Digi Application Development Environment, you do not need to download and install it again.|
Digi Embedded Yocto provides a pre-compiled C/C++ toolchain that matches the default image artifact. You can use it to cross-compile applications to run on Digi embedded platforms, including graphical GTK or QT5 applications.
To install new Digi Embedded Yocto toolchains in your system, follow these steps:
Download the toolchain installer from the Digi support page. (You can also use your own pre-compiled toolchains.)
Give execution permission to the installer and install the toolchain on your host PC.
