Vmware Player Oe Build Environment
« on: November 30, 2005, 09:50:14 am »
In June, I put out a QEMU image for building OE ( https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13311 ).  

The idea being that one could unzip the image, install the emulator, fire it up and start a  build of OE/OZ by invoking 3 or so quick shell scripts.

The June image has been obsolete since July or so when the devs finally switched over to monotone.

Recently, I picked up on this again and started updating it...  got things going with monotone and ported the set-up to run under VMware Player to try to boost speed.

Last night I managed to complete a build for Collie on this set-up, it still needs some polish.

I'm wondering if there is general interest in this type of roll-your-own set-up...  If so I'll put the effort into cleaning it up for consumption.

Cheers,

-G

This is about ready to go...

I'm hoping offroadgeek will mirror the image file, it's about 290MB compressed.

You'll need VMware Player to use it and something in the area of 10GB of free space to build an opie-image for collie.

I'll start a new topic when it's ready to be downloaded...
