Designing a distro from scratch using OpenEmbedded - Part 2 (Koen Kooi, Linaro) - OpenEmbedded makes building a distro really easy, but there are no examples of how to design and build a general purpose distro from scratch. This presentation is continuation of the one given and ELC 2016 in San Diego. That presentation dealt with getting the metadata into place where this presentation will focus on the actual distribution configuration.

There are a number of obvious knobs a distribution can turn, like selecting the init system, C library and package manager. OE has a lot of not so well known option that a distribution developer can change, like forcing static linking, having no /usr or disallowing GPLv3 software.

During this presentation different OE derived distributions will be compared to see what they view as value added differentation and sane defaults.
