Yocto build using bitbake

currentlly I am able to build yocto using:

python3 ~/.bin/repo init -u ssh://git@github.com/legatoproject/manifest -m mdm9x28/tags/SWI9X07Y_03.01.07.00/linux.xml -g default,-cache,proprietary ; python3 ~/.bin/repo sync

and then running make

the problem is that I do not have bitbake

it means I can not compile packages, clean specific packages etc

this makes the whole yocto development process very complicated, since if I make a change in a recipe I must totaly remove the build and rebuilt for the change to take effect

please advice how can I use bitbake

  1. if you think bitbake is the problem, why don’t you install bitbake then?
  2. what happens if you modify a recipe, and then type make to build the yocto image?
