Additional software installation

Does the installation of software that does not come pre-built into the Yocto 1.6 image require rebuilding the Yocto image with that software built into the layers, or is it possible to add the software (which may need to be built from source) after the image is in Flash memory?

In particular, I am interested in supporting an application that is written in Golang.

    You can add packages usuing yum.

    As a followup, is it possible to add a Go application that is not packaged with YUM? In this case, the application would need to be compiled from source.

    If such an application can be added, would it need to be compiled into the Yocto image, or can it be built on the board and installed?

    If it needs to be compiled into the Yocto image, does Samsung support users doing Yocto builds?

    Thanks!

    If the software to be added is not managed by YUM (i.e., it is either custom software, or is otherwise compiled), how is this software incorporated into the image? Would the Yocto image need to be rebuilt in this case?

    In the general case, if Yocto image rebuilding is required, are tools available to enable makers to execute image builds?
