PetaLinux 2014.2 - Can I Control the Compile Order of User Applications, Libraries, or Modules ?


I would like to control the compile order of my user-created content in my Linux system. 

Is this possible?


Yes, this is possible.

The compile order is controlled by a numeric suffix to the KConfig file:


n is an integer where 1 is highest priority.
<type> is one of the valid types (eg, "apps","libs","modules").


The overall compile order is as follows:

  1. Pre-built rootFS packages from the PetaLinux repository.
  2. Libraries.
  3. Applications.
  4. Modules.
