can i use OE to build for BBB without meta-angstrom layer?

wanting to build the artifacts for the BBB using openembedded, and
it *appears* that i can build, say, a core-image-minimal using a
bblayers.conf file containing this:

BBLAYERS ?= " \
  /home/rpjday/oe/dist/layers/oe-core/meta \
  /home/rpjday/oe/dist/layers/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
  /home/rpjday/oe/dist/layers/meta-beagleboard/common-bsp \
  "

does that look reasonable? anyone else done it? i'm not looking to
reproduce exactly what's in the current flasher images -- in fact, i'd
prefer the simplest bootable system that i can use as the basis for a
class in which students will *add* stuff as they need it.

I do this for the BBW, and I see no reason why it wouldn't work for the BBB as they use the same kernel and bootloader.

You may need to add a bbclass file that is found in meta-angstrom, I can't remember the name from the top of my head but it will flag up if it's not found.

machine_kernel_pr.bbclass

i'm pretty sure i'm picking up that class file from meta-oe ... yup,
there it is, under meta-oe, so it doesn't appear i need the
meta-angstrom layer unless i want the angstrom-specific goodies.

Ah, yes, I don't include meta-oe in my build; that's why I have to keep a manual copy. I knew it was in some layer, somewhere :wink:

Have you looked at the README in the meta-beagle repository?

ah, that does answer my question, yes.
