I. Adding the meta-google layer to your build

In order to use this layer, you need to make the build system aware of it.

Assuming the meta-google layer exists at the top-level of your yocto build tree, you can add it to the build system by adding the location of the meta-google layer to bblayers.conf, along with any other layers needed. e.g.:


II. Purpose

Including this layer adds the following packages to your obmc-phosphor-image:

  • google-ipmi-sys: OEM IPMI Handler for providing specific information to the host.
  • phosphor-ipmi-blobs: OEM IPMI Blobs Handler for providing the framework for specific blob handlers.
  • phosphor-ipmi-ethstats: OEM IPMI Handler for reporting ethernet device statistics from the BMCs ethernet devices.

III. Customizations

Presently, this layer also enables the Google Iana for registering phosphor-ipmi-ethstats in addition to the OpenBMC one.
