BitBake also follows the standard of the
--help option. So, anytime, we can list all the available options by running BitBake with any of these options. Thus, we won't get into their details. We will try to discuss only those options that we will encounter most, or we need the most. Another standard or generic option is to get the
--version version of BitBake, which is also available. We used the simplest form of BitBake in the previous chapter to build our images:
$ bitbake core-image-sato
core-image-sato was the name of the image recipe we were building.
The format of
bitbake command as inferred from
bitbake -h is as follows:
Usage: bitbake [options] [recipe name/target …]
In the preceding example, we did not provide any option, as it was not required in the scenario we were building.
Now, issue BitBake with
-h, as shown here from the build directory that we created in the first chapter:
$ bitbake -h
