Tcl/Tk for the Beagle Board

Building Tcl/Tk packages for the Beagle Board with the Open Embedded build environment.

The Pure Data GUI is based on Tcl/Tk, so I built according packages for the Beagle Board with the Open Embedded build environment. The only build I had done before was the package for the nano text editor. However, I found that there was bitbake recipes for Tcl and Tk readily available in my Open Embedded build environment, under <my_open_embedded_dir>/openembedded/packages/tcltk.

I did a Git update beforehand:

cd <my_open_embedded_dir>
source beagleboard/beagleboard/profile.sh
cd openembedded
git pull
git checkout
cd ..

and then went on to build the packages:

bitbake tcl
bitbake tk

All seems to have gone fine.
