Hello list,

Is there a interactive menu-based configuration for yocto/poky builds
similar to that provided in Buildroot? Or is someone working on this?
At present there is not any interactive menu based configuration but
there is work ongoing on a UI called hob which allows you to select
packages and construct images of those packages so its a graphical front
end to the system.

We're also in the process of starting to better markup configuration
variables in the metadata so that writing some kind of menu based
configuration system would be easier in the future.

We're certainly open to any help in those areas too!


Are there any docs for hob at this point?
Not specifically. "bitbake -u hob" should let you see where things are
at. Please keep in mind that its under active development at the moment
and can be considered "alpha" quality but feedback is welcome.
Are they thread of email discussion or anything. I tried playing with it, but a little confused on exactly what its trying to accomplish and what the 'cfg' that is saved off ends up being.
If you have questions please ask them. The saved file should be a recipe
for building a custom image. The purpose of the tool is to help you put
together a custom image and build it.
