The following list shows the required packages by function
given a supported CentOS Linux distribution:
<note>Depending on the CentOS version you are using, other requirements
and dependencies might exist.
For details, you should look at the CentOS sections on the
<ulink url='https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Poky/GettingStarted/Dependencies'>Poky/GettingStarted/Dependencies</ulink>
wiki page.
<note>
For CentOS 6.x, some of the versions of the components
provided by the distribution are too old (e.g. Git, Python,
and tar).
It is recommended that you install the buildtools in order
to provide versions that will work with the OpenEmbedded
build system.
For information on how to install the buildtools tarball,
see the
"<link linkend='required-git-tar-and-python-versions'>Required Git, Tar, and Python Versions</link>"
section.
