I wondered about that, but I get confused about the MACHINE concept in
1. If I define a new machine, but I have a lot of recipes conditioned
on the old machine, how do I say "This is the same as machine A, but
with these differences"? I have defined a machine now ("mymachine")
and have recipes and .bbappend files with things like this in them:
SRC_URI_mymachine += "file:/blah/blah/blah"
Do I have to replicate (and maintain) all of the references to
mymachine to also refer to my newly defined "installationmachine"? Or
can I tell Bitbake that "installationmachine" is the same as
"mymachine", and just add/change new stuff for "installationmachine"?
I hope my confusion here makes sense, but since it's confusion, it's
tough to tell :-)
2. My new image going to be used as an installation image for my
production image. So I need to include the production image (for
MACHINE="mymachine")) deploy products in the image for my installation
image. How can I do that if I define a new MACHINE for the production
Thank you so much for the suggestion... it confirms that I am looking
in the right places and thinking about the right things... I just
don't know how to solve this problem.
I'm also surprised that it's not a more general problem... which leads
me to believe that I must be thinking about this the wrong way.
