I’m trying to get started using the openembedded environment.  I followed the instructions for setting up the build environment on gumstix.net and built the omap3-console-image.  This process took almost 12 hours.  Is that typical?  It also took ~22 GB when the web site said 10GB.  Is this typical as well?


I would like to add some recipes to the omap3-console-image.  In order to do this, do I have to change the omap3-console-image bb file, or can I just bitbake the extra recipes and they will get installed in my image?  If it is the former, does that mean I need another 12 hour build process to re-bake that image?
