Quick Start How To

This sections describes steps that are necessary to run a "Hello, World!" application using Yocto build. Wayland are supported.

Connect Evaluation board and Debug Board

This section explains how to connect flexible cable between boards.

  1. Lift up stopper as depicted on figure 4-1,then insert cable between connector and stopper as shown in Figure 4-2.
  2. Push both ends of stopper to lock the cable.
  3. Finally, cable and connector are become as Figure 4-3.

Build Yocto image

Refer to Yocto for steps necessary for making a Yocto image.

Connect to serial console

Use a miniUSB cable to connect the PC to R-Car V2H Wheat Debug board. CN4 must be used on Wheat side. On Linux, CP2102 driver is included with kernel versions >=2.6.12. Windows driver and sources can be found on Silicon Labs website.

Serial settings are 38400 8N1. Any standard terminal emulator program can be used.

On Linux:

sudo picocom -b 38400 DEVICE

replace DEVICE with the proper tty device name, for example /dev/ttyUSB0. Running dmesg | tail can help locating proper device.
After the successful connection, picocom should display:

picocom v1.7

port is        : /dev/ttyUSB0
flowcontrol    : none
baudrate is    : 38400
parity is      : none
databits are   : 8
escape is      : C-a
local echo is  : no
noinit is      : no
noreset is     : no
nolock is      : no
send_cmd is    : sz -vv
receive_cmd is : rz -vv
imap is        : 
omap is        : 
emap is        : crcrlf,delbs,

Terminal ready

Use Ctrl+A, Ctrl+Q to exit picocom.

sudo minicom -b 38400 -D DEVICE

replace DEVICE with the proper tty device name, for example /dev/ttyUSB0. Running dmesg | tail can help locating proper device.
After the successful connection, minicom should display:

Welcome to minicom 2.6.2

Compiled on Aug  7 2013, 13:32:48.
Port /dev/ttyUSB0

Press CTRL-A Z for help on special keys

Use Ctrl+A, Q to exit minicom.

Power on

Use 12 V power supply with a 5.5 mm barrel plug.

Configure U-Boot to boot over TFTP + NFS or from a micro SD card

Refer to R-Car/Boards/Yocto-Wheat for steps necessary for running Yocto.
