Hi Christoph, I am starting a project do just this. I am trying to get the install working now, what procedure did you follow? I am mostly seeing folks migrate to ubilinix, did you have to do anything special to get it working with yocto?
I am basically using the meta-ros driven by Lukas Bulwahn: bmwcarit/meta-ros · GitHub. Unfortunately I have no detailled instructions online yet, but it was not too complicated. In a nutshell: You need to add this layer to the Edison distro, so yocto knows where to find the recipes. Afterwards you have to adapt the image recipe adding the basic ros recipes, so ROS is compiled.
Not sure when I manage to put something more detailled up, but if you have any questions on each step, just write me a message. :-)
Thanks, I was able to get up and running with the ubilinux configuration. I will check out meta-ros as well.
Do you intend to publish your node code?
Definetively! It's just a matter of time...
If you are interested in the code of the nodes upfront, you can also send me your mail address via private message, and I will zip them for you.
When I started programming for the Intel Maker (first Galileo and later Edison) modules there was no ubilinux implementation yet, so I started with Yocto. First steps are a bit pain in the a**, but once you get the hang of it, it's quite impressive and simple to use.
