New issue with git fetcher?

Scott Garman <scott.a.garman@...>

Hi Richard,

This afternoon I performed a build from scratch using master, which included your git fetcher change to use mirror tarballs (1077021f7010388e889d85630b13c4c7901d7718).

When I performed my build from scratch (using a pre-populated DL_DIR from previous builds), linux-wrs failed on do_fetch, with the following in log.do_fetch:

From git://
* branch common_pc-standard -> FETCH_HEAD
From git://
* [new tag] v2.6.36-rc5 -> v2.6.36-rc5
* [new tag] v2.6.36-rc6 -> v2.6.36-rc6
NOTE: Creating tarball of git repository
ERROR: Task failed: Unknown fetch Error: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

I performed a -c clean and then -c fetch, but ran into the same problem.

I then went and deleted the linux-wrs-related sources from DL_DIR, and ran -c clean and -c fetch again, and it looks to me like the fetcher is actually downloading tarballs from the source mirrors first, and then trying git directly:

NOTE: Running task 130 of 130 (ID: 0, /raid0/sources/poky/meta/recipes-kernel/linux/, do_fetch)
NOTE: package linux-wrs-2.6.34+git0+b67e060194a38c6331da1532bd06446087a42b3b_0+0431115c9d720fee5bb105f6a7411efb4f851d26-r12: task do_fetch: Started
NOTE: fetch
NOTE: fetch

I confirmed this by seeing wget running in my process list, and then git eventually shows up.

Finally, I get the bitbake message:

NOTE: Creating tarball of git repository

...and I see gzip running, but the task ends up failing with the same error as the log.do_fetch example I mentioned above.
