Narcissus updates - we need your feedback
With the change to an oe-core based system a lot of things changed and angstrom itself has gone through some changes as well. One of those changes is that some packages were renamed or deprecated.
To keep narcissus working the decision was made to remove all machines and trim the package lists.
The new machine list matches the autobuilder: qemuarm, qemumips, qemuppc, qemux86, beagleboard and beaglebone. That matches the machines supported in OE-core and the ones I get paid to support for my day job.
The process to add machines is fairly simple:
1) Find the layer for the machine in http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/LayerIndex
2) Check the setup scripts to see if it's already configured
3) Send patch for setupscripts
4) Send patch for narcissus
The process for packages is pretty much the same. They will need review since not every layer plays nice with others. I'm hoping that this process will be easy enough for people to follow while preventing non-working combinations to get added.
As always, feedback appreciated.
