Re: IMAGE_INSTALL_append workflow

Trevor Woerner

Thank you so much for having a crack at this. Your results have allowed me to dig a bit deeper into this issue.

I'm still trying to narrow down the exact issue but here's what I have so far.

I'm working with the git repository, but I've been playing around with this for about a week, so I'm not 100% up to date. Specifically I'm using:


Starting with that repository I follow the regular steps:

$ poky/oe-init-build qemux86

then I edit the conf/local.conf to end up with the following (virtually no changes, just the lines at the end):

MACHINE ??= "qemux86"
DISTRO ?= "poky"
PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_rpm"
EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "debug-tweaks"
USER_CLASSES ?= "buildstats image-mklibs image-prelink"

PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel = "linux-yocto-rt"

then I perform

$ bitbake core-image-minimal

everything goes well. I then add the following line to the end of my conf/local.conf

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " trace-cmd"

and run

$ bitbake core-image-minimal

everything builds just fine.

Then I modify that last line as follows:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " trace-cmd bash"

now when I try to build I get:

Build Configuration:
BB_VERSION        = "1.16.0"
TARGET_ARCH       = "i586"
TARGET_OS         = "linux"
MACHINE           = "qemux86"
DISTRO            = "poky"
DISTRO_VERSION    = "1.3+snapshot-20121126"
TUNE_FEATURES     = "m32 i586"
TARGET_FPU        = ""
meta-yocto-bsp    = "master:c206007235df3e00c21a1cbf30e8a1bccc07a9e5"

Can anyone reproduce this? It doesn't make sense.

Initially when I first saw this problem, I had been using building "core-image-rt" so I thought it had something to do with that image. But my tests from today seem to indicate that it doesn't since I was able to reproduce my problem with "core-image-minimal" too.

I haven't yet figured out if the "PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel = "linux-yocto-rt"" line might be the culprit.
