Re: #yocto howto use deltask #yocto

Hans-Ulrich Schlieben

Hi Quentin,

thank you, the empty variant "removes" the task and the read-only-rootfs check works:
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() {

There are some issues which let me into the wrong direction. First I commented out the former code in the bbappend file. Apparmor builds, but the read-only-rootfs check fails:
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN} () {
#if [ ! -d /etc/apparmor.d/cache ] ; then
# mkdir /etc/apparmor.d/cache

The same result you get with an empty line in the task:
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() {


For the following cases you get a parser errors:
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() {
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() { }
pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() {}

Thank you and best regards

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


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"
What about:

pkg_postinst_ontarget_${PN}() {

in your bbappend? This should effectively override the task from a bbappend (except if there are _append for the task).

Can't comment on this being a good solution to your problem but that should work to remove the content of pkg_postinst_ontarget.
