13extra packages be installed;

22You also need to install the qemu from http://debian.o-hand.com/.
23Alternatively poky can build qemu itself, but for this you need the
24following packages installed;
25
26gcc-3.4
27libsdl1.2-dev
28zlib1g-dev

30You will also need to comment out ASSUME_PROVIDED += "qemu-native"' in
31build/conf/local.conf.

33Building under other distro's such as Fedora is known to work. Use the above
34package names as a guide for dependencies.
