Hello Steve,

Is the approach where you remove the recipes from the image an option?
Is there a reason why you want to build the recipes that you do not want to appear in your image?

If I am building an image “image-ABC”, and it is composed of a number
recipes, and for some of these recipes I may NOT want to install their
final components within my image…

Which is the best place to modify the build with bbappend ?

Would I modify a recipe’s do_install (do_install_append-recipe_xyz) ?, or would I modify the image recipe (do_install_append-image_ABC) I am leaning this way to avoid cases where the component recipes might have bbappends in place already ?

Looking for the proper Yocto way…
