- - HOB2 update: HOB (Human Oriented Builder) is a GUI based image
builder for people to build customized Linux image more intuitively
and efficiently. This HOB2 update includes a new GUI, re-designed
internal work flow with most of the HOB functions implemented and
significant user experience improvement. If you would like to try out
the new HOB2, please
follow these instructions:
# git clone git://
# cd poky-contrib
# git checkout remotes/origin/dxu4/hob2-v0.12 -b hob2-v0.12
# source oe-init-build-env
# hob

- - Build Appliance update: Build Appliance is a VMWare image with a
Linux OS running. Users can then build a customized Linux image and
boot it into an emulator. With this update, we added X system and
PyGTK support, which enabled the build appliance to run HOB2.

- - Minimal image unique: poky-tiny definition and upgraded packages.

- - Package history analysis: a command line tool called
"buildhistory-diff" to analyze changes in the buildhistory git repo.

- - GUI helper to start creating recipes: a GUI helper application
which can be given a tarball location (local or remote) and create a
recipe skeleton to help people get started with recipe creation.

I seem to be missing something. I can't complete a build successfully with either the tarballs for 1.2_M2 or using the git repository and checking out 1.2_M2.Final. Something major is wrong because it dies in the first few seconds. basic stuff like not being able to parse conf/bitbake.conf

Was I suppose to do something prior to starting to use this release?
