Hi all,

I have playing around with OE and builded some packages ect.
I have a project that I would like to build with OE.
Where and how should I start.

I have a fully working system with rootfs, bootloader, kernel and 
builded with outside OE with crosstools and some scripts.

Have I understand OE correctly if it has fully dependency from a the point
where I issue 'bitbake mysystem'.

My questions are:

1. What 'packages/*/*.bb' file do I need to create.
Do I need one for putting the rootfs/jffs2 toghether, one for tasks, and one 
for the kernel.
Where should they be located.

2. What is the relation beetween packages files.
Looking at opie it seems that
.../images/opie-image.bb <- .../tasks/task-opie.bb <- a huge set of 
'opie-..' pkg

I have read this section and the manual for creating new targets

Should I start doing a copy of opie or?
Have I forgotten anything beside 'local.conf'
