Re: Yocto Linux Project Sync notes

I thought the plan was to do BOTH a QEMU demo and a demo on real
hardware? If that's not the plan, it should be the plan.

that maybe getting all the pieces running on one hardware might be a
good way to try it out just in case.
I can try getting everything running on one machine too - would it
make sense to try that all on e.g. emenlow, or all on a laptop using
qemu, or both?
Everything on One machine doesn't make a lot of sense to me, for two

1) This is heavily network dependent, making sure the machines can find
eachother is a critical aspect of testing this.
2) Qemu does some magic with tun/tap devices, you have to configure
things to get multicast working between guests. I've tested the
mediatomb image in qemu, it works. We need to test on real hardware.
3) We don't an image that will install everything on the same machine,
and making one doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
4) Running a NAS to serve up media to itself doesn't test the networking
side of things as well.

I'd rather use 3 real devices (even if they are all emenlow or
blacksand) rather than qemu or all on one.
