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.

If you just want a simple toolchain, please read our simplified development setup instructions

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

Step 2

If you are behind a firewalling proxy, have a look at the oebb.sh file, it has built-in proxy handling.

Start building:

MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh config beaglebone
MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh update 
MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh bitbake virtual/kernel
