I've built the gumstix-console-image with deb packages and the
PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_deb"
IMAGE_FEATURES += "package-management"
IMAGE_INSTALL += "apt apt-utils"
I'm using a Tobi expansion board and the Overo Earth Storm.
- I had to manually set the IP because the network started down by default.
- I had to create the folder #mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial
- Apt-get install never finds the packages to install and the file
/etc/apt/sources.list doesn't exist.
Do I need to add the repositories?
If anyone has experience with this I would really appreciate some help,
when you have time to.
Is it a bad idea to use debian?

I don't think package_deb is the best choice if you are looking for help.
Rpm and ipk are more popular for Gumstix.
FWIW, we've gone back to ipk after a six months or so with rpm.
I haven't seen a benefit to rpm that compensates for the additional build
times it incurs.
Admittedly the systems I work on tend to be small with a dedicated
function. They are not designed to be updated from public repos.
