Sorry trying to do to many things at once
fogot to say save it as

name.bb in your equivalent of /user/overo/user.collection/recipes/images

then bitbake name


see http://bec-systems.com/web/content/view/79/9/
http://uma-wiki.network-mobility.org/index.php5?title=Custom_images_for_Gumstix_Overo

task-base  may still to to large for you.

Make a custom image with just the exact packages you need.

There was an interesting thread on this list about a month back on making a minimal image for overo.

Think this is Scott Ellis' site
http://www.jumpnowtek.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=65:gumstix-quick-boot&catid=35:gumstix&Itemid=67

His pages on pwm, spi and i2c are very useful.

Yes make your own custom image recipe

quick example below
(may want to switch to minimal image as the depends)

put it in
/user/overo/user.collection/recipes/images

check what packages / base tasks you need via the package browser
http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/repo/


If you are using other similar boards (beagle , panda etc)
you may want to use the angstrom/oe version rather than gumstix version
as they can build for multiple boards from the one toolchain and
Koens latest setup script is a bit easier than setting up gumstix tools.
see http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/simplified-development-setup
and their online builder is good if you need a new image to test with in a hurry
