A x86 computer which runs Ubuntu 22.04


1. Install Docker

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install

2. Build Docker image

git clone
cd build
sudo docker build -t blade3-debian-env ./
# View the built docker image
blade3:mixtile~/build$ sudo docker images
REPOSITORY          TAG       IMAGE ID       CREATED         SIZE
blade3-debian-env   latest    ad587023e07a   3 minutes ago   1.7GB
ubuntu              20.04     83a4bf3bb050   2 weeks ago     72.8MB

3. Install Repo

# repo depends on python3, make sure you have a python3 environment before using it
# sudo apt-get install -y python3 && sudo ln -snf /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python
mkdir -p ~/.bin
curl > ~/.bin/repo
chmod a+rx ~/.bin/repo

4. Download code

# Before downloading git, install git tool and configure Git information
# sudo apt-get install -y git git-lfs
# git config --global ""
# git config --global "Your Name"
# You can create a new blade3 directory and do the following
mkdir blade3 && cd blade3
repo init -u -b master -m rk3588_linux_release.xml
repo sync

5. Build using Docker

# You need to execute the following command in the source directory, the blade3 directory
sudo docker run --privileged -u root -it --rm -v $PWD:/build blade3-debian-env
cd /build
./ chip    # Follow the prompts to select rk3588 and rockchip_rk3588_blade3_v101_defconfig
./ all

6. Build output
