OpenCV causes bitbake failure for dey-image-qt : ConnectCore 8X SBC Pro

Several times, different people and different build hosts, we have failed to successfully follow the instructions presented on this page:

always the opencv portion fails with the error:

I was able to get around, finally, by commenting out the line
PACKAGECONFIG_append_mx8 = " opencv kms tinycompress"
from the file

but I’m curious as to how the initial/default firmware image was created
(i.e. the ones available here:

Many thanks

This looks like a network error:
ERROR: opencv-4.2.0.imx-r0 do_fetch: Fetcher failure for URL: ‘git://;protocol=https;branch=4.2.0_imx;name=opencv’. Unable to fetch URL from any source.

can be temporary. Are you able to access
from a web browser on the development machine?

This has been going on for weeks. New guy started on the project and even from his home office the same error. No other sources fail to load, and the link above shows “No repositories found” from the dev machine.

please update your yocto tree, the version of the opencv you are trying to pull is pretty old. Here is the line I see when I bitbake the latest dey-3.0r4:
0: opencv-4.4.0.imx-r0 do_package_write_rpm_setscene - 10s (pid 450)

please do
~$ cd /usr/local/dey-3.0
~$ repo init -u -b zeus
~$ repo sync -j8 --no-repo-verify

and then bitbake again
I’ve just done
bitbake opencv -c clean
bitbake opencv
and the build completed successfully
Currently 1 running tasks (0 of 0) 100% | |
0: opencv-4.4.0.imx-r0 do_packagedata_setscene - 0s (pid 2664)

Thanks for that. I was initally using the stable release but switched to the zeus branch after your suggestion.
in this case opencv at least downloads, but fails to build.

so one step further but not complete yet. I must be missing something obvious, or there could not be a precompiled option built to have available for download.

it builds here. What error do you see?

Apologies - PICNIC. It succeeded after undoing something stupid.

Good news! if your problem is resolved, please click the “Select answer” checkbox.
