Re: linux-yocto defaulting to 3.4.52 for new qemuarmhf.conf

Hi Bruce,

I created a new qemuarmhf.conf, to build using armv7a vfp and neon.

In the recipe, I explicitly specified SRCREV_machine_qemuarmhf and added qemuarmhf to the list of COMPATIBLE_MACHINES.

For some reason, it still refuses to build using kernel 3.8, and keeps defaulting to 3.4.52.

I know I can over-ride it in my local.conf by setting a PREFERRED_VERSION_virtual/linux ="3.8" , but I'd like to know what I've missed, to get it to work by default, without setting the over-ride in my local.conf.
Weird, even after setting PREFERRED_VERSION_virtual/linux ="3.8", it still picks up recipe!
Try 3.8%, you need to match on the version completely, and it is 3.8...., not
just 3.8.
Ok, I forgot about that!

Another quick question, why is it that when I create a new qemuarmhf.conf machine configuration, it doesn't automatically pick up the latest recipe? Why does it attempt to use the 3.4 recipe?

Best regards,
