25poky-depends deb is also available from this source which will install
26all the dependencies mentioned above for you.

28Alternatively poky can build qemu itself, but for this you need the
29following packages installed;
30
31gcc-3.4
32libsdl1.2-dev
33zlib1g-dev
34
35You will also need to comment out ASSUME_PROVIDED += "qemu-native"' in
36build/conf/local.conf.

44Simply run;
45
46% source poky-init-build-env
47% bitbake poky-image-sato
48
49This will result in an ext2 image and kernel for qemu arm (see scripts dir).
50
51To build for other machine types see MACHINE in build/conf/local.conf
52
53Other image targets such as poky-image-sdk or poky-image-minimal are available,
