Sorry, I searched several hours on this topic, but still no result, can I ask here?
Is it possible to create my own .ipk binary package on my Intel Edison to port on another Intel Edison? I installed edison-image-ww25.5-15.zip
For example now I have some source tar which I can build
tar -xf source.tar
and it works perfectly, but it is not convenient way to make it if I will have several Edison devices. So I need some easy way to detect/pack all installed files to some ipk package or at least to some tar which I will unpack with tar -xf -C / . On Fedora linux it was easy with rpmbuild tool, is there something same here on yocto?
In in section 4.4 ofEdison's BSP User Guide it is explained how to build a recipe from scratch and add it to Edison's image. You can build only the recipe you are interested and then you can find the ipk in build/tmp/deploy/ipk/edison. That ipk can be installed on any Edison. I'd suggest you to also read BitBake User Manual and in the general all the Yocto's Mega-Manual so you can learn more about this subject.
