I am using Yocto daisy for imx6sabrelite.


I want to know if I can use a package manager and point to a specific repo for "armv7a-vfp-neon" binaries. Currently, by using "package-management" as an extra_image_feature, I have rpm (by default) in my rootfs. I could use apt or opkg instead of rpm as my package manager for the Yocto build as well.


Since this is for an educational purpose, I would want to get a build in place and have students use a package manager to get basic packages installed on the system such as nano or emacs or vim or anything else.


Has anyone had success in finding a repository that enlists either rpm or deb packages, which the package manager can point to and get "armv7a-vfp-neon" binaries from?


Please help!
