How to include linux utilities in the Digi Yocto 1.6 image

By default the Digi Embedded Yocto DEY-1.6 image does not have linux utilities, e.g. taskset command. To use this command, we need to build a new root file system image by adding:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " util-linux"   to local.conf

in your project directory of your workspace.

once added the above append, now create the new image with:

# bitbake dey-image-graphical
 
after deploying the new rootfs image to your device, you can use the taskset command.
To use the taskset command properly, please check below posts.
