Dear OE developers,
I like to make an announcement on the VDR list. Could you please check
my draft for it, that I did not mess up any terminology (framework,
distribution) and that I gave correct credit to everyone.
If you would change something to promote OpenEmbedded or the embedded
world better or from a different point of view please tell me.
Thanks and sorry to bother you with this,
Dear VDR users,
VDR 1.7.10 is now also available as a package in OpenEmbedded (OE), a
build framework for embedded Linux . I thank Henning Heinold who
did most of the work to get VDR included and the OE developers to answer
my questions on the openembedded-devel mailing list .
Around 30 hours ago, Koen Kooi added VDR also to Ångström , a
distribution using OE heavily.
With `opkg install vdr` it is now as easy as on other systems to install
VDR and get it running on embedded devices which because of their energy
efficiency and form factors, e. g. BeagleBoard , are predestined for
use as a server.
The next steps are going to be to improve the packaging in OE and to
send some patches to upstream VDR to adapt it for cross compilation .
As always especially the developers do not have much time, so help with
testing and writing patches is very welcomed.
Instructions will also be posted in the VDR Wiki  on how to get this
Thanks again to everyone and happy testing,
