Classic OE recipes

May 07, 2017 — BarryK
I have struck gold!

I want to add more packages to my "core-image-quirky" build in OpenEmbedded. For example, JWM, ROX-Filer, Minimum-Profit and Dia.

Today I discovered a treasure trove of old recipes:
http://cgit.openembedded.org/openembedded/

I downloaded the whole lot:
# git clone git://cgit.openembedded.org/openembedded oe-classic --depth 1

There is a recipe in there named "mped", which is the Minimum Profit text editor (executable name is "mp").
Yes, it is old and broken. A great starting point, and I fixed it.

In OE, I have a new layer, named "meta-quirky", and new recipes such as "mped" go in here, as well as fixes for existing recipes and other configuration.

Comments

Tried for some time, was unable to compile ROX-Filer, have put it aside for now.

Success with the window manager JWM, I adapted the recipe from here:
https://github.com/watatuki/meta-lightwm

mp
jwm
rox-filer
dia
didiwiki
dvd+rw-tools
gpicview


rox-filer took a long time to figure out, ditto dia. Gradually learning the tricks of the trade with OE.
