OE and SGX


I'm new to Beagleboard and want to get a development environment
where I can create 3D apps only with the framebuffer (no X11).
It got the demos working when I download a precomiled (unstable)
angstrom image.
Now I try to install openembedded (OE). The unstable of angstrom fails
to compile,
therefore I switched to the stable/2009 as recommended
(git checkout origin/stable/2009 -b stable/2009).
Does anybody know if the stable version is sufficient for getting 3D
to work?
I ask because compiling OE lasts at least a day if it does not fail.
I already obtained OMAP35x_Graphics_SDK_setuplinux_3_01_00_02.bin
for compiling the kernel drivers later on.
