Re: Build error while following Appendix A. Yocto Project Development manual

Jim Abernathy

Just to clear up the basics, Prior to following Appendix A verbatim, I did the following
1. install prerequisites from GS guide
2. git clone git://
3. cd poky
4. git clone git://
I did not install the poky-extras. I assumed it only had to be installed if you installed the kernel source for modification like in Appendix b

Hmm, not sure what's going on here - I'm sure this example was verified
several times, but just to make sure, what you're doing is going through
'Appendix A. BSP Development Example' verbatim and getting this?

The SRCREVs in either case look ok for this, so that shouldn't be the

But let me go over the steps myself and see what I come up with - will
let you know either way...
