Modify Emulator Image
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 http://download.tizen.org/snapshots/tizen/ivi/ivi/latest/images/emulator/ivi-mbr-i586-emul/
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]
