Re: replace etc/network/interfaces with symbolic link

Bryan Evenson


One possible issue is ${sysconfdir}/network/interfaces is listed in the CONFFILES in the original recipe. It may still be installing this file because it is listed under CONFFILES. Try adding:


To your bbappend.

Subject: [yocto] replace etc/network/interfaces with symbolic link


I'm trying to find a clean way to replace /etc/network/interfaces with a
symbolic link. (it comes with init-ifupdown recipe) I tried with a bbappend
but nothing appear in final filesystem and /etc/network/interfaces still

I'm sure the following code is completely wrong, but I don't know how to do
this with the right way...
do_install_append () {
mkdir -p datas/network

install -d 0755 ${D}/datas
install -d 0755 ${D}/datas/network
install -m 0755 ${D}${sysconfdir}/network/interfaces ${D}/datas/network
#mv ${D}${sysconfdir}/network/interfaces ${D}/datas/network
rm ${D}${sysconfdir}/network/interfaces
ln -sf /datas/network/interfaces ${D}${sysconfdir}/network/interfaces

FILES_${PN} += "/datas/ /datas/network/interfaces"

thanks for any help
