About yocto for jetson nano

Hello,

Announcing Yocto support for Jetson Boards

The author is www.ridgerun.com.
Is yocto officially supported for jetson nano?

Actually, I don’t know yocto itself
Can you briefly explain it?

Thank you.

Hi neuezeal,

That’s not supported by NVIDIA, but created by partner.
You may need to do more study, see https://www.yoctoproject.org/

Hello,

What do you mean by’y partner’?

Thank you.

@neuezeal

Jetson support for Yocto/OpenEmbedded is a community project, not directly supported by NVIDIA (although RidgeRun is one of NVIDIA’s official partners and can provide support). Visit https://github.com/OE4T/meta-tegra for more information on the BSP layer for Jetsons; for more information on the Yocto Project itself, take a look at the documentation on their website, which kayccc mentioned.

Hello @neuezeal,

The Yocto support on Jetson devices is possible thanks to the amazing effort made by @madisox and the community to contributions to meta-tegra layer.

RidgeRun is a NVIDIA’s official partners and we provide professional support. You can find more information in our wiki page: https://developer.ridgerun.com/wiki/index.php?title=Yocto_Support_for_NVIDIA_Jetson_Platforms

Hello,

I don’t know more about Yocto
It is known to provide shortened development time, stability, and robustness.

What are the advantages of using yocto to build jetson nano?

Thank you.
