I've looked throught the forumns, documents, and the wiki's but it does't appear obvious to me on how one would build an image using openembedded to only build the image from a realease/unstable ipkg feed e.g. angstroms ustable feed. Is there a special task like 'opie-image' or something that builds images from a feed without building everything from source?

I originally posted this in the general discussion area, but I've re-posted here which seems to be the better location.

Thanks,
Jim

I guess, either you build from source or you don't. Why go through all the trouble? Just compile your stuff and be happy. I think you are creating a problem that was not there in the first place.

It ought to be possible to build an image from the ipks (rather than source), but this is a question for the oe mailing list. Take a look at the archives first though.

I am assuming you mean the OE mailing list archives? I'll head over there to checkout that out. It's definitely not in the wiki or the documentation though.

Thank you for the response,
Jim

I feel it would be extremely useful and allow faster development if i
was able to for example $bitbake nano, work on nano, and then build most
of the image from the feed which included my modified nano. Also, I
can't seem to find the mailing list archives or at least an easly searchable one. Could someone kindly point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Jim

This already happens. Nano won't be re-built just to satisfy "bitbake gpe-image", it will be installed from the ipk.
