BitBake and Omap3-desktop-image

Hey all.

I've been out of the loop for quite a while and now looking to come
back in. I went to build an up to date build of the latest kernel.

So I got the latest from org.openembedded.dev and went to build... and
it seems that my recipes not longer work as the omap3-desktop-image.bb
is gone!?

What did I miss!?

Hi,

I'd like to do exactly the same thing, i.e. build the kernel on it's
own, so it's compatible with the Angstrom demo image. I found that
:> bitbake -b openembedded/recipes/linux/linux-omap_2.6.29.bb
builds the console image only.

Can anyone tell me what the recipe is to build the kernel with the
appropriate configurations to allow the X11 file system to run?

Many thanks,
Tim

1) You don't have to specify the complete path. Use
bitbake linux-omap
to build the preferred a Linux kernel.
2) You will use the same kernel for both console image and X11
3) To build an X11 file system do the following:
bitbake beagleboard-demo-image
This will take many hours to complete, depending on the speed of your PC.
Copy mlo first and then u-boot.bin and uImage.bin from the OE deploy folder
to the fat32 partition of your sdcard and untar the filesystem to the ext3
partition. Update your boot environment on your beagleboard and you are good
to go.

The omap3-desktop-image is part of Gumstix Overo Branch -- based on
OE / Angstrom. It works for Beagleboard too. Just set
MACHINE=beagleboard in the .conf file.

Take a look at http://www.gumstix.net/Overo/view/Overo-Setup-and-Programming/Setting-up-a-build-environment/115.html

for more info.
