opkg setup on base-rootfs-am335x-evm
I'm getting an error from "opkg update" when I'm using the base image base-rootfs-am335x-evm.tar.gz from AM335X-LINUX-PSP-04.06.00.03 on my Beaglebone board (see below). How should the config file look for the Beaglebone ?

I believe those feeds were removed from the latest SDK because they are not updated. In fact we don't have any real package feeds published for Arago.
I'm using base-rootfs (from SDK 05.05.00.00) on am335x-evm too, but I would like to add some packages already in tisdk-rootfs.
Would it be possible using opkg? How do I have to configure it? I've found several .conf.sample files in /etc/opkg but they seems wrong.
Or can I manually download packages used to build tisdk-rootfs from somewhere, and then install them?
Sorry but I'm not familiar with opkg.
Unfortunately you would need to rebuild the packages you want and create a package feed to install them. If you are already re-building the packages it would likely just be easier to add those packages to the list of packages to install into your file system and not even bother with a package feed.
Finally I've just copied the files I need from tisdk-rootfs to base-rootfs, looking at opkg info and dependencies to do the right thing. Not really elegant but quick and works.
SDK 05.06 release notes state that: Migrated to OE-Core based build system. Does it mean Sitara SDK is not based on Arago project any more? Which are the changes, essentially?
The SDK is still using Arago, but OE moved from what is now called OE-Classic to OE-Core. Arago is now available as meta-arago which sits on top of oe-core much like arago sat on top of oe-classic. There may be some package version changes, but the fundamentals are the same including the use of opkg.
