 +====== OpenEmbedded ======
 +===== Installing/​Building =====
 +This pages descibes how to install the OpenEmbedded environment for building Netbook images. ​
 +  - Check out the tools and the package metadata: ​
 +  $ cvs -d :​pserver:​​cvs co -ko -roe-vendor oe
 +The password is '​anoncvs'​. If you have a BitKeeper licence, you can use that instead. See http://​​oe_wiki/​index.php/​BitKeeper for instructions in that case.
 +  * Check http://​​oe_wiki/​index.php/​RequiredSoftware and make sure you have all the required software installed. You don't need to install a cross-compiler,​ since OE builds its own.
 +  * Unordered List Item
 +  * Download http://​​~pb/​ and save it somewhere handy. Edit the top of the script so that OEDIR and PKGDIR reflect where you checked out the code. 
 +  * Copy netbook.conf into oe/​conf. ​
 +  * Copy local.conf into oe-packages/​conf. ​
 +  * Source the script. It will change your current directory to be oe-packages.
 +Now you should be all set. Try "​oemake gpe-image"​ to compile an image. It will probably take a couple of hours and a few gigs of disk. Assuming all goes well, look in tmp/deploy/ for the results.
