Just so I'm clear. You are asking about the switch to 3.0 as the
default ? If so, that was only done in master for the upcoming 1.2
release and not on the edison branch, so you wouldn't pick it up
by pulling.
Thanks! I did a git checkout -b master origin/master and will try again.
Thanks Bruce for pointing me in the right direction. I just wanted to
follow up.

I switched to master branch and did a clean build for Beagleboard. I
can confirm that it worked. I blew my SD Card away and put freshly
built yocto images of MLO, u-boot.bin& uImage and my Beagleboard xM
boots fine (one last question after this output below):

... so now I'm back to trying to get poky to use my local
linux-yocto-3.0 git repo.

One more question. When I setup linux-yocto_3.0.bbappend in
poky-extras/meta-kernel-dev/recipies-kernel/linux, do I use
"yocto/standard/beagleboard" for KMACHINE?
If you still want the default (which you likely do here), you
can leave KMACHINE untouched in your bbappend and the inherited
value from the core layers will take care of everything. Get that
working on your local clone, and then try tweaking things :)



Thanks again,
