bbappend - Where should my file be?

Chris Tapp

I've got a linux-wrs_git.bbappend file in a layer (under poky laverne 4.0.1) that contains:

WRMACHINE_Vortex86DX = "common_pc"


SRC_URI += " file://defconfig"

Where should the defconfig file be relative to the bbappend?

I've tried:

+--- recipies
+--- linux
+--- linux-wrs_git.bbappend
+--- linux-wrs_git
+--- defconfig

However, my defconfig file isn't being picked up during do_unpack:

cp: cannot stat `/home/chris/yocto/yocto-versions/laverne-4.0.1/meta/ recipes-kernel/linux/files/defconfig': No such file or directory

ERROR: Task failed:

Which seems to show that it's not looking in FILESEXTRAPATHS.

The .bbappend file seems to be processed, as commenting out the SRC_URI line gets rid of the error.

What have I got wrong?
