Hi there,I added in my build/conf/local.conf the following:
EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "dbg-pkgs dev-pkgs tools-debug tools-profile tools-sdk debug-tweaks"
I can not seem to come across the information regarding how to re-bitbake my target (fsl-image-test).should I clear the whole image? or just clear something (everything & how) ? or simply just rerun "bitbake fsl-image-test" and everything that needs to be re-bitbaked will be re-done?
Thank you for your help

(EXTRA_)IMAGE_FEATURES seems to be what I needed indeed.
I am reading upon it and modify my builds so as to include debug symbols in the target rootfs.

A few questions:

- for feature "tools-profile" it includes valgrind in arch "x86" only. Why Is that? I am sure I have seen people compiling valgring for arm.  Is there another application I can use with yocto to check for memory leaks?

Presumably at one point it needed patches for those archs, I'm not sure as to its current state, but I'm sure the yocto folks would love a patch for oe-core to address any such issues.

I am still a little fuzzy about the folder "sysroot" as opposed to the rootfs folder.

The sysroot is used during the build so that a recipe can find files from its dependencies. You should never touch it yourself.
