Thanks Alex,

I successfully  " $ bitbake omap3-console-image" using the given
instructions from:
gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embedded-build-system.html

Should I also:
bitbake x-load     MLO (OMAP3 bootstrap loader)?
bitbake u-boot     u-boot (boot loader)?
bitbake virtual/kernel     linux kernel?

Since I would like to install the kernel & file-system to NFS or the
MMC/microSD card, would the console image be the perfect candidate
instead of the desktop image??

NB: My application (Project) consists of "Image Compression <=> Image
Processing" .

Thank you and I'm looking forward for your suggestion,
Gutembert.
