OE Pyro with meta-quirky

Here is all that is needed to compile most of the packages used in Quirky Linux. It is a tarball with a snapshot of OpenEmbedded "pyro" branch, and my customization "meta-quirky" layer.

Create a folder in a partition with a Linux filesystem, at least 150GB free space, and expand the tarball inside the folder, it will expand as folder "oe-qky-src".

Inside oe-qky-src, you will find a readme file that explains what to do next.

Just a few commands to execute, and off you go! Need a fast Internet connection, as over 515 source packages have to be downloaded.

Download oe-qky-src from here:

Fast mirror:

I also uploaded a tarball of woofQ. Once you have all the binary packages, they can be imported into woofQ (see script 0pre-oe), and Quirky Pyro built.

Some notes there about making the host system compatible for OE.

You will need python3 and its deps. Also see notes about some groups (see /etc/groups) that OE expects to exist.
