Hi Bruce,

I am trying to understand the best way to make a development station
(for application staff), so that the application can be compiled and
debugged on target using that host development station.

I have the following ideas:
1. use the exact  target iso in virtualbox (in my case the target is
intel i7, so it should work)
2. create sdk with yocto:
But then I see in /opt/poky/2.1.2 2 folders:
1. corei7-64-poky-linux
2. x86_64-pokysdk-linux
I don't understand what's each of them actually contain.
Then I can probably use this toolchain from any development (even windows?) .

Please tell me what do you think of the above, and if there is any
better solution.
