meta-teapot

The meta-teapot distribution is a yocto/openembedded layer for serveral boards of different kind of platforms. The focus is on mainline kernels and bootloaders rather than using outdated or stucked vendor blobs. This layer also provides some small images for different use-cases.

Setup Instructions

Setup OE:

$ git clone git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core oe-core
$ cd oe-core
$ git clone git://git.openembedded.org/bitbake bitbake
$ git clone git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded

Setup Teapot:

$ git clone https://github.com/shagu/meta-teapot.git

Prepare for the first build:

$ source ./oe-init-build-env

Configure local.conf (conf/local.conf):

DISTRO ?= "teapot"

Configure bblayers.conf (conf/bblayers.conf):

LCONF_VERSION = "5"

BBPATH = "${TOPDIR}"
BBFILES ?= ""

BBLAYERS ?= " \
