Enlarge the image root partition size and convert format

You can find emulator image at:

[sdk install directory]/platforms/ivi-3.0/emulator-images/x86-standard/emulimg-3.0.x86

Download the IVI Emulator image at this link

You need to enlarge the loop image root partition size by:

$ e2fsck -f platform.img
$ resize2fs platform.img 3900M

You can mount it by:

# sudo mount -o loop platform.img /mnt/[mount_directory]

And you can also chroot into it by:

# sudo chroot /mnt/[mount_directory]

You can use "rpm" and other command now.

After that, you can exit from it and umount it:

# exit
# sudo umount /mnt/[mount_directory]

Then you need to convert the loop image to QCOW2 format by:

$ ~/tizen-sdk/tools/emulator/bin/qemu-img convert -O qcow2 platform.img emulimg-3.0.x86

Install the new packages from within the emulator when it's running

You can also use zypper to install packages:

# zypper install [PACKAGE_NAME]

Or you can upload rpm files to emulator by:

$ sdb push [FILE_NAME] [DIRECTORY]

And then you can use sdb tool to login to emulator from console and install rpms within it

$ sdb shell
$ su 
# rpm -i [RPM_FILE_NAME]
