- The filesystem image has two forms.
- One form is an <filename>ext3</filename> filesystem image.
- The other form is a tarball of the filesystem and is booted using user-space NFS.
- Here are the respective forms:
+ The filesystem image has two tarball forms: <filename>ext3</filename> and
+ <filename>tar</filename>.
+ You must use the <filename>ext3</filename> form when booting an image using the
+ QEMU emulator.
+ The <filename>tar</filename> form can be flattened out in your host development system
+ and used for Yocto Project build purposes.
