Help Day recap


On 28 November we had Help Day at our training building, we got dozen of visitors!

Radoslav Kolev and Leon Anavi made talk about OpenEmbedded, Yocto, Poky:



They had the same talk at OpenFest but due to the limited time there they couldn’t show all demos, here they had plenty of time to show how core-minimal distribution is made, and how you can add your own programs to the distro.

What are the good practices when you build Linux with Yocto and why it’s choosen de-facto for Industry standard by all big players working for industrial and automotive applications.

We show H3-OLinuXino and A33-OLinuXino and of course the new DIY Laptop plastic parts:


Everyone was able to touch and feel the different parts and plastics and to see the quality.


The LCD is special laptop edition very thin and light with just 2.8 mm thickness.


The battery is 8000mAh also very thin.


you can see the laptop size compared with A20-OLinuXino-MICRO


Total dimensions are 29 x 20 x 1 cm with final weight less 1 kg – a bit less the size of A4 paper.

    Could you post the presentation about Yocto? It would be interesting 🙂

    @Vincenzo, the slides are available in slideshare but they are in Bulgarian:

    You can easily find a lot of similar and even much better presentations about Yocto/OE and Poky in English.
    During the demo we used meta-sunxi and a meta layer meta-openfest which we created to show a Yocto recipe for “Hello World” + a bbapend file for it 🙂 Here is the source:

    I would find it a lot more interesting if you would fit it for a 96boards consumer edition board.

    Hmm, I just came up with a new name for one of the next boards of Olimex – OlinuXino FROST 🙂 What do you think?

    Will TrustZone be available for tinkering with on this notebook? It might be a great device for security conscious people who don’t trust intel

    Hopefully this can be FSF endorsed and runs *BSD…
