Hi,

I encountered a problem when try to add packages in my image recipe, but
I don't understernd if I wrong something or I have to do it in another way.

In detail, in my common_layer there are:
   - image_base.bb <http://image_base.bb> : yocto base image 
   - image_with_graphicsupport.bb <http://image_with_graphicsupport.bb>
: where include image_base.bb <http://image_base.bb> (require
image_base.bb <http://image_base.bb>)

Now, in my BSP layer, I want to add some packages to the image_base.bb
<http://image_base.bb>, so I create here the image_base.bbappend file.
But when I try to compile image_with_graphicsupport.bb
<http://image_with_graphicsupport.bb> the result is not how expected.
Image_with_graphicsupport.bb doesn't add packages contained in
image_base.bbappend but only the packages contained in image_base.bb
<http://image_base.bb>.

Is true that when include an image to another with require statement,
you can't extend the base image with a bbappend?
Yes, it is true, because the file is included and it is not anymore like
a recipe that can be extend. It will be searched for a
image_with_graphicsupport.bb append, not image_base.bbappend.

IMHO you can easy reach your goal if you write a packagegroup recipe
where you put all packages you have in the IMAGE_INSTALL of your
image_base.bb. You can then have a .bbappend for the packagegroup in
your BSP layer (and this then works) and you put the packagegroup in the
IMAGE_INSTALL directive of both image_base.bb and
Image_with_graphicsupport.bb.

or I wrong something else?
Best regards,
Stefano Babic
