2019.x Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC: Yocto or PetaLinux return warnings when you enable libmali with the fbdev windowing system


In Yocto or PetaLinux 2019.x on Zynq UltraScale+ devices, build returns warnings when you enable libmali with the fbdev windowing system:

WARNING: You have included the meta-gnome layer, but 'x11' has not been enabled in your DISTRO_FEATURES. Some bbappend files may not take effect. See the meta-gnome README for details on enabling meta-gnome support.


These warnings can be safely ignored.

Whenever you select individual backends, as in the case of fbdev, packaging will return a warning to indicate that you have deviated from the default distro settings.

It should still work functionally without any issue. If you want to remove this gnome warning, follow the steps below:


Add the below variable in build/conf/local.conf


Add the below variable in <plnx-proj-root>/project-spec/meta-user/conf/petalinuxbsp.conf
