'I'm a developer, is there any technical info available from the PLi® team?


Welcome and tell your developer friends about us

Yes and welcome aboard! If you have specific question, you can use our 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.

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 prerequisite 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
