Hi Community,

I have a python module which I downloaded from github containing a as all python modules.
When I create a recipe with devtool it compiles correctly with no problem, but when I copy paste the same recipe source from workspace recipes to an official meta recipe I got this error :

LICENSE = "Apache"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://LICENSE;md5=cb6bb17b0d0cca188339074207e9f4d8"
SRC_URI = "file:///media/talel/data/multigate/multigate/meta-wirepas/recipes-wirepas/wirepas-gateway/files/wirepas_gateway-${PV}/"
If your recipe is in:
and is in:
just put:
SRC_URI = "file://wirepas_gateway-${PN}/"

I'd suggest putting your .zip file in:
(note the missing files directory), in which case, your SRC_URI would
SRC_URI = "file://"

Also... This looks like you're taking code from ? Have you thought of using the git
repo directly? e.g. devtool add python3-wirepas-gateway

It'll use the latest commit in master but it's changeable, and it is way
more maintainable IMO compared to a tarball you manually download every
now and then.

Please do NOT use _ in your recipe filename, so rename your recipe to
