[edit] Intention

This page is intended to make the life of new developers easier. Feel free to add all your usual bitbake commands to this page

[edit] Start a build

To get a package build just type

 bitbake foo

where foo is the name of the package without any extension or version number.

[edit] Clean up

 bitbake -c clean foo

This command will clean up your tmp dir for the given package. It is very useful if you work on a new .bb recipe. Without it your changes to the recipe may not work.
