Hi, I've just started making use of the CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL variable in my local.conf. I'm really confused about where everyone is finding valid names for the packages? I though maybe it was the recipe names in meta but I've run into build errors if I add something like "dhcp" to the list for example. I looked it up in the yocto manual and it just basically restates what I already know but without telling me how to find package names. When I search around on google all I find are examples of people adding packages to it and having some issue, but I haven't seen any reference to where those names come from. Could someone please point me to the documentation, or point me where to look for a list of valid names?
Well for the most of us its pure experience and knowledge -most
package names actually match the recipe name, its a somewhat rough
best practise. However, to get a list of packages available in a
specific build, you can use

oe-pkgdata-util list-pkgs

... and pipe it trough your most loved pager/searcher :)
