I am using oe-core to build a custom firmware for my TK1 based on BSP 2.7.1b. Each generated .ipk package includes some kind of meta information which can be get by opkg info XXX. Is there a way to strip this information?
I wouldn’t know.
Why do you want to remove the meta-data the package manger needs to do its job?
One thing one could do is removing package-management from EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES in conf/local.conf. That way you do not deploy the packagemanager opkg and all the meta-data into the image.
The metadata contains information about the sources together with the username and password to access this data.
