This page is intended as a brief introduction on creating your own base images. The target image will boot in to an instance of the Qt QML Viewer application running as the X Session, which is a good starting point when trying to build your own products. Following this article you should be able to build your own images, boot them on a device, and be prepared for the next stage in product creation, User:TomSwindell/Building Custom Images.


In order to build your own product images, you will need the meego-image-creator (mic2) package for your host GNU/Linux distribution. Unfortunately using Microsoft Windows is not supported for building images. If Microsoft Windows is your preferred development environment then we suggest you install a modern GNU/Linux system in a virtual machine to follow the image creation procedure.
