Re: Documenting YP Development Environment in more detail - user configuration


Rifenbark, Scott M <scott.m.rifenbark@...>
 

Here is a link to draft section on the user configuration block of the YP Development Environment work. Check this out and provide feedback for appropriate level of detail, usefulness, missing info, ect. This draft section, once we settle on it, will set the tone and level for the remaining detailed sections that make up the general environment diagram.

Thanks,
Scott

I totally agree we drifted way beyond the initial discussion of the
figure. The key thought here is understanding how Poky differs from a
typical use of oe-core + other layers.
Is there such a thing as a "typical" use of oe-core + layers? Poky
uses a custom tool (combo-layer, in oe-core/scripts) to merge the
layers into a single repo. You could also use git submodules to make
a single repo (such as Guacamayo), or git subtree merges, or use repo
(gumstix), or have a script that manages the fetching of multiple
layers (Angstrom).
