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.

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
