Development time under yocto

Hi all,


We're using yocto to develop for a few weeks and find it very cumbersome. No trouble with the patch process and the general scheme of development. No, the problem is working with yocto is blatantly time-consuming... for nothing, spending time to compile and compile again full modules whereas only one file has been touched .

Yocto doesn't see a modified file and thus, the whole module has to be recompiled at each time. As it is often the kernel, it's very long. And seemingly, it's not possible to change this fact.


I'm very upset with this behaviour, and i wonder how to bypass it, if possible.


Some people suggest to develop elsewhere than in yocto. So, is there an obvious solution, that would be linked with yocto ? Or do we need to roughly copy sources into another development environment like Ltib ? Buildroot ? Other ?
