Yocto Build Chromium browser

  • I followed the instructions in the iMX 6 First Steps document to add the Chromium browser,
    however the version it pulls in is 48.0.2548.0 which is far too old.


    Are there any plans to pull in a more up-to-date version of the browser?


    The meta-browser master branch contains 68.0.3440.106 which is far more suitable.

  • The next release will use a newer Yocto version (most probably 2.4) which also contains a newer Chromium. However it will still take a few weeks until release.

  • Hi everyone,


    I tried to build chromium within yocto and I followed the steps as in the Efus First steps guide, but in the middle of the build process bitbake can not find this file "file://include.gypi".


    in summary I did the following:

    - I downloaded "fsimx6ul-Y1.0.tar.bz2"

    - ./setup-yocto

    - DISTRO=fus-imx-x11 MACHINE=fsimx6ul source ./fsl-setup-release.sh -b build

    - I added the chromium package as in section 9.2.7

    - bitbake fus-image-std


    only in middle of the build process, I hit exactly this error -->



    Thanks

    kind regards

    Ahmed
