When specifying a target for bitbake you can't include the version (the
underscore _ and everything after it). Poky will take care of selecting the
version for you; in this case there is only one. So you should run the
following instead:

$ bitbake u-boot

FYI for future reference if you do have multiple version choices and want to
force one of them to be selected that is not the default, you need to add this
somewhere (initially local.conf, but it may become part of your custom distro
if you later create one):

PREFERRED_VERSION_packagename = "1.0"

(Assuming packagename is the name of the package and 1.0 is the version you
want to select.)

Paul is correct in all the above. However, u-boot is very
machine-specific, and there is no qemuarm u-boot configuration. In order
to build u-boot, you must define:


In bernard and older releases, the first is usally defined in the as a machine override:

UBOOT_MACHINE_your-machine = "uboot-machine-config"

Where uboot-machine-config is a named machine config that upstream
u-boot ships with its sources. The second and third variable are usually
defined in the machine configuration file.

For example, for the beagleboard, these values are set as:

UBOOT_MACHINE = "omap3_beagle_config"
UBOOT_ENTRYPOINT = "0x80008000"
UBOOT_LOADADDRESS = "0x80008000"

If you aren't sure what those values should be, consider starting a
thread on the u-boot mailing list on how to configure u-boot for your
specific machine.
