Recipe editing/modification in Yocto build system

Hi buddies~

Would you guys guide me to the quickest/easiest way to modify/customize recipes in Yocto distirubution?

  1. I do not want to change original .bb file and sources.
  2. Can I simply override everythings in previous .bb file by creating one more recipe with the same name under my own layer?
  3. After editing/modifying sources, do I have to generate diff file and put it into under files/ folder and add it to SRC_URI ? Hey… man it’s too bunch of finger sliding over keyboard…

Any your nice handling for source modification of each recipe/packages?


You can check this guide in the developer portal which gives an overview of how to include custom layers
