Known Issues
- --------------------

- Bug 2256 - kernel menuconfig confusion with sstate.

If you change the config during a build, bitbake may not detect the change
and will not rebuild the kernel. After changing the config, be sure to
force a kernel recompile:

$ bitbake virtual/kernel -c menuconfig

$ bitbake virtual/kernel -c compile -f; bitbake virtual/kernel

- Bug 1858 - Rootfs creation broken when using package_deb as primary
PACKAGE_CLASSES with non Debian-OS build system.

This is a known issue that rootfs creation is broken when using package_deb
as primary PACKAGE_CLASSES with non Debian-OS build system. The work around
is to use a Debian system to create the rootfs if you need to using
as primary PACKAGE_CLASSES. But for package generation e.g. for
package feed,
etc. it works fine on both Debian-OS or non Debian-OS.

- Due to production processes, the Yocto Project documentation
extracted from the
Yocto Project 1.2 Release tarball is not as up-to-date as the documentation
cloned from the poky source Git repository and the Yocto Project's
website. If you want the most up-to-date documentation for the
Yocto Project 1.2
Release, do one of the following:

* git clone git://
