Adding Recipies / Layer to ref-os-iot

Good evening,

I have successfully pulled & built the most recent ref-iot-source, using bitbake, from GitHub - 01org/ref-os-iot: This is the official distribution of the Intel(R) Reference Operating System for the Internet…

I would like to know how I can add a recipie / layer to my build, as the Joule does not come with the packages I need with the default image. I am looking for IW, tcpdump, and a few others. I have attempted to follow the guide outlined here: , but I cannot seem to locate the ../machine/local.conf file in order to add the recipie. Would you happen to know what file I would add the necessary recipies to, or provide an example for how I would add IW? I plan to pull the recipes from here: OpenEmbedded Layer Index - layers

Thank you as always.

I have figured out which files to edit:


add the following line to the bottom: CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += ""


Nagivate to and open the following file in a text editor: ~/work/ref-os-iot/meta-ref-os-iot/conf/distro/ref-os-iot.conf

Find the line that says "SUPPORTED_RECIPIES_CHECK = "warn" and uncomment it (ie, remove the # )
