1OE-Core aims to be able to provide basic LSB compatible images. There
2are some challenges for OE as LSB isn't always 100% relevant to its
3target embedded and IoT audiences.
4
5One challenge is that the LSB spec is no longer being actively
6developed [https://github.com/LinuxStandardBase/lsb] and has
7components which are end of life or significantly dated. OE
8therefore provides compatibility with the following caveats:
9
10* Qt4 is provided by the separate meta-qt4 layer. Its noted that Qt4
11 is end of life and this isn't something the core project regularly
12 tests any longer. Users are recommended to group together to support
13 maintenance of that layer. [http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-qt4/]
14
15* mailx has been dropped since its no longer being developed upstream
16 and there are better, more modern replacements such as s-nail
17 (http://sdaoden.eu/code.html) or mailutils (http://mailutils.org/).
18
19* A few perl modules that were required by LSB 4.x aren't provided:
20 libclass-isa, libenv, libdumpvalue, libfile-checktree,
21 libi18n-collate, libpod-plainer.
22
23* libpng 1.2 isn't provided; oe-core includes the latest release of libpng
24 instead.
