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.
