when asked “what is the yoe distribution,” the following is the response:
Yoe (Yocto/OpenEmbedded) is a Linux distribution built using the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded build systems. Yoe aims to provide a lightweight and customizable Linux distribution for embedded devices, IoT devices, and other systems.
Yoe leverages the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded build systems to provide a highly customizable Linux distribution that can be tailored to specific requirements. It includes many open-source components, such as the Linux kernel, systemd, and various libraries and applications.
Yoe offers several advantages over other Linux distributions:
- Flexibility: Yoe can be customized to meet specific requirements, including support for various hardware platforms, package selections, and kernel configurations.
- Modularity: Yoe uses a modular architecture, where software components are built as separate packages and can be added or removed as needed.
- Security: Yoe provides security features, such as support for signed packages, secure boot, and remote attestation.
- Upgradability: Yoe supports over-the-air (OTA) upgrades, allowing devices to receive updates remotely.
- Community: Yoe is an open-source project with an active community that provides support, bug fixes, and new features.
Yoe is suitable for a wide range of embedded and IoT devices, such as industrial automation systems, routers, gateways, and more. It provides a stable and customizable Linux distribution that can be tailored to meet specific requirements.
The odd thing is that much of the above is not directly listed on the Yoe website or github README, so interesting how it is putting all this together …
