This might be a dumb question as, of course, the needed software strongly depends on the project that is going to be carried out However, does someone have any suggestion about any packages? Of course, it can be explained with the project.
The idea behing this is to be able to build different light images for different projects, just with the needed.
@Iker , i would say images as slim as possible. That the omega works with the hardware on it. The rest doing with small scripts.
For example if you want a samba server, a script who installs you the correct packages and goes thru a basic config with input it writes direct to the config files.
If you want to personalize, you can deactivate the questions, to set variables and reconfigure them to your own values before running the script.
Organizing all the scripts on a pen-drive would help to reconfigure a new updated firmware. For example if we use a pivot-root and have to reconfigure everything manually.
To comment the whole scripts would simplify to use them.
There is a set I installed on mine (every time I wiped them) that I use all the time. But it really depends on what you want to do with it. I have a 1GB swap file on the SD card, and I have the OS copied and booting from the SD card as well. I connect via samba and ftp and mess with php, python and the oled and gps extensions.
