research Clarify build parameters

Recommended Posts

I have a supported build host running, and successfully building and testing  kernels for a few targets that I have examples of.


I'm looking to extend my repertoire to building complete armbian images. 

I think I also want to use EXTERNAL and/or  EXTERNAL_NEW to configure additional packages into the image.


This has led me to this stanza:



set to “yes” to build bare CLI image suitable for application deployment. This option is not compatible with BUILD_DESKTOP=”yes” and BUILD_EXTERNAL=”yes”


I can find no BUILD_EXTERNAL referenced elsewhere, should this be simply EXTERNAL ? or have I missed something.


Is there documentation on how EXTERNAL and EXTERNAL_NEW  parameters are invoked?
