I have been searching and keep running into dead-ends, so I'm hoping that you can help?
What is the proper way to replace specific packages in Petalinux with the newest versions?
e.g. Let's say that a newer version of OpenSSL was out than was in Petalinux recipes... I would want to replace or patch the existing.
Could you point me in the right direction?
You need to overwrite recipe variable as described in the wiki
