Q: How do I add package XYZ to an image I compile?


In brief

  • check (OE_DIR)/recepies/image directory for the image recepies
  • edit/create your new image recepie

For exampe create 'minimal-image-wiki.bb' receipie with the content:

require minimal-image.bb
IMAGE_INSTALL += "nano mtd-utils"

export IMAGE_BASENAME = "minimalist-wiki"

This image will consist of all program from 'minimal-image' plus 'nano' and 'mtd-utils'. To build: bitbake minimal-image-wiki
