Here is the content from the old wiki main page
= User manual =
There is the work in progress [http://www.openembedded.org/user-manual reference manual for OE] available in the following formats: <a href="/user-manual">HTML</a>.
Please check it, as it is updated often. It needs your contribution, too.
= OpenEmbedded Wiki =
This wiki contains various topics of relevance to OpenEmbedded.
== OE Developer Wiki ==
=== Getting started with OE and bitbake===
* [[Required software]] - Software you'll need on your system to use OE
* [[Getting started]] - Instructions on setting up and using OpenEmbedded
* [[MonotonePhraseBook]] - We use Monotone for version control. Right now, monotone is not really fast especially if you have a lot of revisions to incorporate, but its performance increases with each new version released. So, if you tried mtn a few months ago, try the latest version now - you will be amazed how it is progressed.
* [[OEandYourDistro|OpenEmbedded and your distribution]] - Instructions on using OE with specific base systems/distributions
* [[UsefulConfigurations|Useful configurations]] - Details of some of the more common/useful configuration options
* [[UsefulTargets|Useful targets]] - Details of some of the commonly used and more useful OE targets
* [[OeFaq]] - Questions, answers, and solutions to problems
* [[IceCC]] - Compiling on a cluster of machines
