I am using raspberry Pi 3 running a poky image built using the Yocto project. Is there any possible solution to add gcc compiler to the image? I found the cross-compilation very complicated and unfeasible for me (No possible ssh or wired connection between my laptop and the raspberry).

I tried adding features under EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES in the local.conf file like tools-sdkand tools-debugs as a solution proposed here but the new image doesn't boot.


Is there a solution to add gcc to the poky image or to poky?

I guess you already have an image made in the /tmp folder.You need to delete the /tmp folder and run the bitbake again in order to create a new image.
