Re: Cleanly moving files from one package to another

-----Original Message-----Now I'm having something happen that I haven't seen before with the PR service. I updated my .bbappend to add the RREPLACES as you suggested, but bitbake didn't rebuild the package. I tried doing bitbake -c clean and bitbake -c cleansstate and both times the built package had the same full version number as it did before I made the RREPLACES change. I opened the ipk with Archive Manager and looked at DEBIAN/control, and there was no "Depends: " line in the control file. Then I noticed that this .bbappend had "inherit pkgconfig" and it isn't needed in the .bbappend. So while I was at it I deleted the line "inherit pkgconfig" and tried to build the package again (without issuing a bitbake -c clean first). This time it built the package and the PR service incremented the version. I opened the resulting ipk and looked at DEBIAN/control again, and this time there was a "Depends:" line in the control file.
Is changing RREPLACES not being seen as a metadata change by bitbake? Is this a bug or is there something else I'm missing?
RREPLACES,RCONFLICTS,RPROVIDES.If the old package should be removed completely during opkg upgrade,
