Porting OpenEmbedded Thud release

March 21, 2019 — BarryK

The packages used in EasyOS 0.9.x - 1.0.x were compiled by "oe-qky-src", which is a port of the "Pyro" release of Yocto/OpenEmbedded:

The Yocto/OpenEmbedded release schedule is here:

...Pyro was released in May 2017, and EasyOS is showing its age a bit. Nothing really wrong with the older glibc, gcc, etc., but EasyOS is probably due for a freshen-up with later packages.

I did do a partial upgrade of the Xorg and some multimedia packages, from the "Sumo" release awhile back.

Anyway, now having a go at a complete upgrade, to the latest stable release, codenamed "Thud", version 2.6.1.

Intention is, there will be a new repository, probably at, named "oe-easy-src".

It is doing a compile right now, with the Thud package recipes as-is, just to see if it will compile. If that succeeds, I will port some recipe modifications that were applied in oe-qky-src, and about a hundred extra packages that are not in Yocto/OpenEmbedded -- for which I created recipes.
