bitbake/openembedded

Post by jeroen » Thu Nov 10, 2005 5:11 pm

Hi,

Has there been an effort to add minimyth to the openembedded build system ? It look http://freepia.org/ is.
Openembedded (actually bitbake) is a build tool for (cross) building complete systems, including tooling kernels and filesystems.
I'm using bitbake for building filesystems for some arm platform like the Sharp Zaurus ect.
I think it would be a big win to build minimyth with bitbake, you can then easily build extra packages (1000+) supported by openembedded allready in a blink of the eye (or maybe a little nap).
I'm getting quite familiar with openembedded and with the contribution of freepia I think it's not too much effort to build minimyth with openembedded.
Let me know what your thoughts are, if you have questions feel free to ask.

Other than the availability of extra packages, does using OpenEmbedded offer anything over using GAR (which is what MiniMyth uses currently)?

I quess I have to check out GAR first to answer this question... I'm just very enthiousiast about openembedded since I work with it almost on daily basis and it's really flexible compared to other build systems I've used before. Unfortunatly I never used/seen/heard of GAR before.
Hope I find some time to check it out,

Jeroen.
