INdT and Mamona31 Mar 2007 08:52 am

We are changing Mamona starting to use OpenEmbedded (OE – http://www.openembedded.org/) that is a great build system.

There are at least 4 good reasons to use openembedded:

- Avoiding monkey work – OE uses bitbake to build the packages. BitBake is a simple tool for the execution of tasks. It is derived from Portage.

- Avoiding monkey work – OE already has a lot of package descriptions.

- Community interaction – OE has a great and active community.

- Open Source.

Our plan is to use OE as a build system to build .deb packages and then setup a repository with these packages. Then, using a debootstrap script, the final user will be able to easily install the Mamona.
