Hi community,

I'd like to create a Linux for my brand new x86 Intel Galileo board. The installed Linux is based on a Yocto-build, which is source-code available.

Has anyone got experience on how to package ROS with Yocto? I found only a year old thread on this topic, where it has been discussed for ARM devices. State back then was more or less, no further info available (yet)...

Best regards Christoph

Since beginning of this year there is a project that provides a build-layer for Yocto:

Stumbled over it by pure luck, but initial installation worked ok, so I can recommend it as a good starting Point :-)

Meanwhile I switched to Intel Edison (as Galileo turned out to be quite on the lowest possible edge of what is still doable for ROS). I have good experiences with meta-ros.

Good luck everyone! :-)
