     19== FSL Community BSP ==
     20The [http://freescale.github.io FSL Community BSP] is a community driven project to provide and maintain a Board Support Package meta layer to be used with [http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/OpenEmbedded-Core OpenEmbedded-Core] and [https://www.yoctoproject.org/tools-resources/projects/poky Poky].
     21
     22It is comprised of three layers on top of [http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/OpenEmbedded-Core OpenEmbedded-Core] and [https://www.yoctoproject.org/tools-resources/projects/poky Poky]:
     23- [http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-freescale meta-freescale] - provides the base BSP support and the board support for Freescale i.MX and QorIQ reference boards;
     24- [https://github.com/Freescale/meta-freescale-3rdparty meta-freescale-3rdparty] - provides support for 3rd party and partner boards;
     25- [https://github.com/Freescale/meta-freescale-distro meta-freescale-distro] - provides images recipes, demo recipes, and packagegroups used to ease the development with Yocto Project.
     26
     27These layers take priority over (via layer configuration):
     28- [http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky poky]
     29- [http://cgit.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded/ OE core]
     30
     31The Gateworks Yocto BSP utilizes the FSL Community BSP layers but adds two more layers:
     32- [https://github.com/dv1/meta-gstreamer1.0 meta-gstreamer1.0]:
     33 * Gstreamer package backports
     34- [https://github.com/Gateworks/meta-gateworks meta-gateworks]:
     35 - changes to recipes in other layers (bbappends) suitable for pushing upstream:
     36  * gstreamer1.0-plugins-imx - add patch to support tw6869 PCIe capture device used on avc8000nano ''(submitted upstream)''
     37  * imx-kobs - add a patch to support split MTD partitions ''(submitted upstream)''
     38  * init-ifupdown - use nl80211 for wpa_supplicant driver instead of deprecated wext  ''(submitted upstream)''
     39  * hostapd - add AC support to hostapd-2.2 (alterred defconfig)  ''(submitted upstream)''
     40 - changes to recipes in other layers (bbappends) not suitable to push upstream
     41  * u-boot-fw-utils - add install script that configures fw-utils dynamically per board (nand vs microSD/MMC)
     42  * gpsd - disable startup on boot (by removing initscript)
     43  * cryptodev - load cryptodev module on boot
     44 - Gateworks contributed packages:
     45  * hostapd-conf - script for easily generating hostapd.conf file
     46  * gateworks-test - test script for simple loopback of audio and video
     47  * gsc-update - GSC firmware update utility
     48  * gst-gateworks-apps - example gstreamer RTSP server application
     49  * gwsoc - utility for GW16113 PSoC I/O expansion card
     50  * compat-wireless - updated wireless drivers for iwlwifi/ath9k/ath10k/ar3k/intel-ibt
     51  * gateworks-image-minimal - core-image-base + a bunch of basic test tools and wireless/networking
     52  * gateworks-image-test - gateworks-image-minimal + gateworks-test gstreamer1.0-plugins-imx
     53  * gateworks-image-multimedia - gateworks-image-multimedia + imx-test, alsa-utils, alsa-lib, alsa-state and gstreamer
