Eagle on Jessie

I use Eagle 7.4 in a Jessie chroot (on a Wheezy system).

In your Jessie, install the following things:

sudo apt-get install libx11-6 libxrender1 libxrandr2 libxcursor1 libfreetype6 \
  libfontconfig1 libxext6 libxi6 libssl1.0.0 libcups2 libx11-xcb1

Some Notes on Using AWS as a "Fast" Computer


I'm cheap. My personal computer is a Dell Latitude D620 with a Core2Duo processor and a few years old consumer grade SSD. It cannot do much very quickly and I would like to be able to have a machine which can build software much faster.

I've written about using AWS as a workstation computer before on my blog, so I figured I mind as well actually try and do that.

I want to have a tool like Google's repo but which is specific (or generic, but specific at first sounds easier) to managing OpenEmbedded development for product development. Basically, I want to have a two step process where you write a set of metadata that describes how to layout a directory structure of OE layers/bitbake/etc given a set of git repos and directories which exist alongside the metadata (and maybe perforce, ew, depot directories, via git-p4), and then a second step where those directories/repos are setup for you and everything gets checked out to the right state so that you can simply source oe-init-build-env and then run your bitbake.
