yes, i know it's an editable wiki but i'd rather someone else make

there's only decaf in the place. this is bad.

anyway, using this page as grist for discussion:

"To build and run a meta-intel BSP, you need to check out a local copy
of the poky repo ..."

i think that sentence demonstrates the yocto vs poky confusion koen
was talking about -- a regular waffling between "yocto" sources and
"poky" repos.
Yeah, just because poky appears in the URL doesn't mean we need to
reference it beyond that.

below that, there are references to
git:// -- should those references be updated
to refer to the repos?

there's a reference to "poky-qemu qemux86" -- change to "runqemu
qemux86"? or is that the correct name in the last released version?
(i rarely look at released versions.)

and i'm pretty sure that there's a missing reference to the
meta-yocto layer here:

/usr/local/src/Yocto/meta \
/usr/local/src/Yocto/meta-intel/meta-fishriver \

unless that's also correct for the last released version.

further down,

$ bitbake poky-image-sato-live

there's no such bitbake target these days.

anyway, that was about 60 seconds worth of perusing. if some
meta-intel person wants to mess with that page, it's all yours.
Yeah, definitely, I need to update these pages for for edison, which
I'll do now that I know somebody's actually making use of them.

Thanks for your comments...
