It is true that the beagleboard is a hardware reference board in the
yocto consolidated kernel tree and meta-yocto layers. That means
that it gets the yocto standard QA builds and boot testing.

That being said, if you are looking for the latest + specific
features then you've been pointed in a good direction .. meta-ti
will meet your needs.

As for disentangling and reducing questions in this area .. rest
assured, we are working on it.
ok, that's perfectly reasonable -- meta-yocto provides a generic,
well-tested product, while the meta-ti layer provides more
leading-edge content, correct? which is a perfectly respectable

but the impression i got from koen is that this wasn't even the
right forum to ask such a question. so i'm a bit confused -- can i
just use the combination of yocto + meta-ti to build a fairly
up-to-date image for my beagle xM or not?
I'm not 100% up on the progress on the TI layers, but as far as
I know, your description above is a goal. meta-ti works on top of
oe-core and with other layers (i.e. angstrom) to produce what you
describe. I've also heard that there's a variant that works with
(just) oe-core (I'm not recalling all the details and can't look
them up right now) to produce an image. The READMEs in the various
layers should spell out the dependencies.

If you are still working on this, and it isn't making sense, drop
another email and someone can help translate!
