Hi.

I have been looking in to the possibility to utilize yocto autobuilder
for one of my own projects.

But I am having some problems setting this up and hopefully someone
here can provide some pointers.

I did the "quickstart part":

git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/yocto-autobuilder
cd yocto-autobuilder
. ./yocto-autobuilder-setup
yocto-start-autobuilder both

Above succeeds without any issues. But now what? :)

I went to https://localhost:8010. I tried to login using the
information that is in the .htpasswd file but that did not work. Where
are the credentials to login setup?
You'll need to create the .htpasswd file yourself. I think the
"htpasswd" tool can do this for you, I can't remember the exact
commands I used to make mine though sorry.


I also made an attempt to remove all un-wanted buildsets and now
buildset-config contains (all other directories are removed)

nightly-mender-rpi.conf yoctoAB.conf

Above is parsed correctly on start-up but build is never triggered. I
probably removed to much :). Looking in to nigthly.conf it seem that
is the one that trigger all other nightly builds?

My fork can be found at [1].

This looks good, you just need to setup the scheduler with something
like this in nightly-mender-rpi.conf:

scheduler:
[{'nightly-build':{'type':'Nightly','hour':23,'minute':0}}]

You should only need a separate nightly.conf when you want that to
trigger multiple builds.

I've recently setup an autobuilder for meta-raspberrypi which I'll be
publishing once I've got the last bits of setup done. If you're still
struggling to get the nightly triggering working let me know and I'll
put up the configurations I've used as a git repository.
There is also additional helpful information on the Yocto Autobuilder
wiki page here:
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/The_Yocto_Autobuilder. Some of the
information applies to the Yocto Project build cluster, but is still
applicable to local autobuilders. I followed the same instructions to
setup a local AB. Be sure to use the htpasswd command that's in the
autobuilder git tree (in one of the bin directories, as I recall),
rather than a native system one. The AB version defaults to the
shorter crypto scheme that buildbot requires.
Thank you for your fast responses. Generating the htpasswd file my
self did the trick. Now I can login. The full command was (as you
suggested I used the one in autobuilder git repo under ./bin):

./htpasswd -b -c <path to htpasswd file> <user name> <secret
password>

Forced a build of my configuration now and hoping for the best :).
And it was not green all the way.

I get an error that I do not get how to get around. The error message is:

ERROR: Unable to parse
/home/mirzak/project/yocto-autobuilder/yocto-autobuilder-mender-
rpi/yocto-worker/nightly-mender-rpi/build/meta-mender/conf/layer.conf:

mender/conf/layer.conf

The error message I understand. But I do not understand why it adds
meta-mender to bblayers files. I did not tell it to do that, because
meta-mender contains layers that I want to include. Similar to
meta-openembedded (which is also added to bblayers).

Here is the bblayers.conf also for reference:

cat bblayers.conf

Can I disable the "magic" that added meta-mender and meta-
openembedded?
Yes, you can. I just ran into this problem the other week when I updated my autobuilder. Add 'autoinclude':False to your layer definition in the "repos" section in your build configuration file. For example, in one of my build configurations I have:

{'meta-openembedded':
{'autoinclude':False, 'repourl':'git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded',
'branch':'fido'}},

Here's the patch description further describing what the autoinclude option does: http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/yocto-autobuilder/commit/?id=1599d458ec078378438aeb011ed706a4474b10a6.
