Angstrom Build Instructions
All Angstrom binaries are built using OpenEmbedded. This document described the steps necessary to setup an environment where you can build images and packages yourself.
The OE host distributions wiki has information about needed packages on your host and possible tweaks for e.g. SElinux. Step 1
get the setup scripts: Go to the the setup-scripts repository and clone it, the URLS are on top of that page. You should end up doing something like:
git clone https://github.com/Angstrom-distribution/setup-scripts
If you are behind a firewalling proxy, have a look at the oebb.sh file, it has built-in proxy handling.
MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh config beaglebone MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh update MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh bitbake virtual/kernel
The complete image is the cloud9-gnome-image that for legacy reasons lives in the Angstrom fork of meta-ti.
MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh bitbake cloud9-gnome-image
Debian Build Instructions
You'll want a fairly beefy ARM system to run this script.
git clone git://github.com/beagleboard/image-builder.git && cd image-builder ./beagleboard.org_image.sh
