Is there a relationship between the sstate and the machine?

Mans Zigher <mans.zigher@...>


I am using a build environment based on the yocto project from one of
the big HW suppliers in the mobile industries. They are continuously
breaking the principles behind the yocto project and at one point they
managed to break the sstate cache because they are doing things in
there own way instead of using what already exists. They managed to
fix the sstate cache but it now looks to only work when using there
machines when I am defining my own machine even though it is a copy of
one of theirs the sstate cache it is not working. The sstate cache is
detect and the SSTATE_DIR is correct but it finds only a handful of
matches and builds the rest from scratch. Is there a logical
explanation for this? Or is this yet again some custom crap that this
supplier have done. FYI if you know what supplier I am talking about I
would very much recommend staying the hell away from them this is the
worst linux distro I have ever worked with both on the build and on
the system it is some kind of freak combination of a normal linux
system and android worst combination ever.
