fetch problem during build

Tim Bird <tim.bird@...>

Hi all,

I am trying out yocto, and I get the following error during an initial build:

ERROR: Task failed: Fetch failed: Unable to fetch URL git://git.pokylinux.org/linux-2.6-windriver.git;protocol=git;fullclone=1;branch=common_pc-standard;name=machine from any source.
NOTE: package linux-wrs-2.6.34+git0+b67e060194a38c6331da1532bd06446087a42b3b_0+0431115c9d720fee5bb105f6a7411efb4f851d26-r12: task do_fetch: Failed
ERROR: Task 476 (/a/home/tbird/work/yocto/poky-laverne-4.0/meta/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-wrs_git.bb, do_fetch) failed with 1

I don't have git access through my corporate firewall, except to kernel.org.
I presume this is the source of the problem. I read that someone else had problems
with fetching source in CVS. I suspect that will be a problem as well, since
I don't have CVS access through my corporate firewall either.

I tried the instructions at: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Working_Behind_a_Network_Proxy
(for the git-proxy), but this didn't work. I suspect I don't have a SOCKS

In the CVS case above, there appeared to be a workaround to directly download
some files.

Is this possible with the kernel source as well?

Also, I presume I could substitute my own kernel
source, if I wanted to? Maybe some pointers about how to do what
would be good as well.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
