Re: Yocto 1.1 Beta Questions

Brian Duffy <brduffy@...>

Okay, so it turns out that I had already downloaded what I needed with the instructions from the latest blog post for the beta release. It specifically mentions certain command to replace from the quick start guide. So I went into the "oe-beta" directory and ran . ./oe-init-build-env ~/my-build and that set up my environment variables. When I ran bitbake core-image-minimal I got an error stating that xterm was not installed. That might be something to include in the quick start section of things to install first. Anyway, it seems to be happily building a minimal linux distro for the emulator to run. I'll let you know if it works out.

One more thing - if you prefer a tarball to git (easier on some corporate networks) the process is the same, just un-tar the tarball into a working directory and cd into the poky subdir and go from there. The tarball should be the latest stable release.

Hi Brian, sorry for the delay.  

If you download the poky tarball or use git to grab it and then follow the instructions on the quick-start, the tools should build automatically.  In a nutshell, try this:
cd poky
. ./oe-core-build-env
[that should put you into a build directory]
vi conf/local.conf  [set at least MACHINE, instructions in the file]
bitbake core-minimal

I hope this helps!  I'm on IRC as Jefro or available by email, let me know if I can help at all.

Thanks for the input Jeff. I have not downloaded the tools yet. I'll probably download the tarball since I don't have much experience with git. I'll set the bbpath in local.conf and uninstall bitbake from the package manager before I do so. I guess building the tools will take care of bitbake and pseudo. Any help with how to build the tools would be appreciated, but no hurry, enjoy the holiday!

Hi Brian - both bitbake and pseudo are part of the Yocto toolset. The standard bitbake from the package manager on your host is not the correct one. Make sure you have set your environment properly by sourcing the build-env script, and it should be set correctly.

As Jason says, set BBPATH in your project directory in conf/local.conf

How did you download the tools, tarball or git?  I find it easiest to do this:

Note that responses may be delayed on a US holiday weekend :)

Google should have helped you with this question:

I believe the primary purpose is to be able to create files with root
ownership without root access.  This is critical for building your
file system.

I doubt you want to do that, but I don't see anything in the
instructions provided to tell you where to get it either.

Did you edit conf/local.conf?
