The OpenBMC project can be described as a Linux distribution for embedded devices that have a BMC; typically, but not limited to, things like servers, top of rack switches or RAID appliances. The OpenBMC stack uses technologies such as Yocto, OpenEmbedded, systemd, and D-Bus to allow easy customization for your server platform.

Any build requires an environment variable known as
TEMPLATECONF to be set to a hardware target. You can see all of the known targets with
find meta-* -name local.conf.sample. Choose the hardware target and then move to the next step. Additional examples can be found in the OpenBMC Cheatsheet
As an example target Romulus
. openbmc-env bitbake obmc-phosphor-image
Additional details can be found in the docs repository.
The OpenBMC community maintains a set of tutorials new users can go through to get up to speed on OpenBMC development out here
Commits submitted by members of the OpenBMC GitHub community are compiled and tested via our Jenkins server. Commits are run through two levels of testing. At the repository level the makefile
make check directive is run. At the system level, the commit is built into a firmware image and run with an arm-softmmu QEMU model against a barrage of CI tests.
Commits submitted by non-members do not automatically proceed through CI testing. After visual inspection of the commit, a CI run can be manually performed by the reviewer.
Support of additional hardware and software packages is always welcome. Please follow the contributing guidelines when making a submission. It is expected that contributions contain test cases.
Issues are managed on GitHub. It is recommended you search through the issues before opening a new one.
