Re: #yocto howto use deltask #yocto

Alexander Kanavin

You need to look into what the postinst_ontarget actually does, and why can it only happen on target. Or do not use a readonly rootfs.

my image build fails with:

The image build succeeds if i remove the task pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN} from

I tried to use deltask in my apparmor_2.13.3.bbappend with different settings:
deltask postinst_ontarget
deltask postinst
deltask pkg_postinst
deltask pkg_postinst_ontarget_
deltask pkg_postinst_ontarget_apparmor
deltask pkg_postinst_ontarget_apparmor_2


postinst_ontarget[noexec] = "1"
postinst[noexec] = "1"
pkg_postinst[noexec] = "1"
pkg_postinst_ontarget_[noexec] = "1"
pkg_postinst_ontarget_apparmor[noexec] = "1"
pkg_postinst_ontarget_apparmor_2[noexec] = "1"
but to no avail - I always get the rootfs error. 

I know how to patch source files. But it seems there is no way to patch a recipe.
My workaround would be to make a copy of the apparmor recipe without the postinst part.

Is there a better or another way to do this?

Best regards
