Create a Yocto* Image with OpenVINO™ toolkit¶
This document provides instructions for creating a Yocto* image with OpenVINO™ toolkit.
Instructions were validated and tested for Yocto OpenVINO 2020.4 release.
Use the Yocto Project* official documentation to set up and configure your host machine to be compatible with BitBake*.
Set up Git repositories¶
The following Git repositories are required to build a Yocto image:
Clone these Git repositories to your host machine:
git clone https://git.yoctoproject.org/git/poky git clone https://git.yoctoproject.org/git/meta-intel git clone https://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded git clone https://github.com/kraj/meta-clang.git
Set up BitBake* Layers¶
source poky/oe-init-build-env bitbake-layers add-layer ../meta-intel bitbake-layers add-layer ../meta-openembedded/meta-oe bitbake-layers add-layer ../meta-openembedded/meta-python bitbake-layers add-layer ../meta-clang
Set up BitBake Configurations¶
Include extra configuration in conf/local.conf in your build directory as required.
# Build with SSE4.2, AVX2 etc. extensions MACHINE = "intel-skylake-64" # Enable clDNN GPU plugin when needed. # This requires meta-clang and meta-oe layers to be included in bblayers.conf # and is not enabled by default. PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-openvino-inference-engine = " opencl" # Enable building inference engine python API. # This requires meta-python layer to be included in bblayers.conf. PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-openvino-inference-engine = " python3" # This adds inference engine related libraries in the target image. CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL_append = " openvino-inference-engine" # This adds inference engine samples in the target image. CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL_append = " openvino-inference-engine-samples" # Include inference engine python API package in the target image. CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL_append = " openvino-inference-engine-python3" # Enable MYRIAD plugin CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL_append = " openvino-inference-engine-vpu-firmware" # Include model optimizer in the target image. CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL_append = " openvino-model-optimizer"
Build a Yocto Image with OpenVINO Packages¶
Run BitBake to build the minimal image with OpenVINO packages:
Verify the Created Yocto Image with OpenVINO Packages¶
Verify that OpenVINO packages were built successfully. Run ‘oe-pkgdata-util list-pkgs | grep openvino’ command.
oe-pkgdata-util list-pkgs | grep openvino
Verify that it returns the list of packages below:
openvino-inference-engine openvino-inference-engine-dbg openvino-inference-engine-dev openvino-inference-engine-python3 openvino-inference-engine-samples openvino-inference-engine-src openvino-inference-engine-staticdev openvino-inference-engine-vpu-firmware openvino-model-optimizer openvino-model-optimizer-dbg openvino-model-optimizer-dev
