Just make a thread about it, and you get help.

The current build process is a bit awkward in general.
After sourcing the config, you can build inside a module. Prerequisite I think is that you
build in the beginning the other modules. Thus you must have an initial successfully build
OO once before you can test you own work by not building every thing.

Maybe it is also possible to build a single module within Eclipse, but I have not figured
out what needs to be configured in eclipse so the outcome is the same.

Please note: Damian is changing the build tool from dmesg + to gmake.
If you build from trunc the module could already support the new toolset.

All the best
