-It is recommended to follow the instructions at http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/building-angstrom
+Currently meta-ti only works with the Angstrom distribution and hence
+requires the meta-angstrom layer. There are known issues when using
+gcc-4.6 based toolchain from OpenEmbedded-Core, thus gcc-4.5 toolchain,
+provided by meta-openembedded, is needed. It is planned to fix these
+shortcomings in the near future and allow building the base BSP part
+of meta-ti with different distributions and layer stacks, such as:
+distro-less (only with OE-Core), with Yocto/Poky, with Angstrom or
+Arago.
+
+Due to the above, it is now recommended to follow the instructions at
+http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/building-angstrom
 
-This will set it up for the OpenEmbedded-core layout instead of the old
-OpenEmbedded-dev layout. You can optionally tweak sources/layers.txt and conf/bblayers.conf to (de)select BSP layers.
