Yes and welcome aboard! If you have specific question, you can use our [[http://openpli.org/forums/forum/39-en-third-party-development/ PLi® Third Party Development forum]] to ask it. You will find we are most accommodating.

This page is about software development using OpenEmbedded-core. If you're looking for the text that used to be on the this page, it's now called [[developer-information-old]].

=====Create your own build=====

See also this forum post on setting up a development environment: [[http://openpli.org/forums/topic/18806-openpli-quick-setup-ubuntudebian/]]

Basically, it boils down to this:

Run Linux. Most of use use the latest Ubuntu desktop release, I suggest you do the same if you don't know what to pick.

Install prerquisite packages, as described here: http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/OEandYourDistro
For Ubuntu, that's:

sudo apt-get install sed wget cvs subversion git-core \
coreutils unzip texi2html texinfo docbook-utils \
gawk python-pysqlite2 diffstat help2man make gcc build-essential g++ \
desktop-file-utils chrpath

Clone the openpli repository:
git clone git://...

Setup the environment
cd openpli-oe-core
MACHINE=xxXXXX make

Build your first image
MACHINE=xxXXXX make image
