OpenEmbedded-Core is a base layer of recipes, classes and associated files that is meant to be common among many different OpenEmbedded-derived systems and forms the basis of the new structure for OpenEmbedded. See the OpenEmbedded-Core page for more information.

Getting started

1) Clone the repositories for OE-Core (the core metadata) and BitBake (the build tool):

git clone git:// oe-core
cd oe-core
git clone git:// bitbake

2) Set up the environment and build directory:

. ./oe-init-build-env [<build directory>]

The optional build directory may be specified, otherwise it is assumed you want to use the directory named "build".

3) First time configuration

The first time you run oe-init-build-env, it will setup the directory for you and create the configuration files conf/bblayers.conf and conf/local.conf. You should at least review the settings within the conf/local.conf file.

4) Build something:

bitbake <target>

A good simple place to start is bitbake core-image-minimal. This will do basic system sanity checks and build a small but practical image. If your system needs additional software installed, or other environment settings it will tell you what is needed.
