Packagegroup Understanding

Charlie Davies

Hi All,

I am seeing some behaviour when creating my own packagegroups which I do not quite understand.

Using the example from the mega-manual:

DESCRIPTION = "My Custom Package Groups"
      inherit packagegroup
      PACKAGES = "\
          packagegroup-custom-apps \
          packagegroup-custom-tools \
      RDEPENDS_packagegroup-custom-apps = "\
          dropbear \
          portmap \
      RDEPENDS_packagegroup-custom-tools = "\
          oprofile \
          oprofileui-server \
          lttng-control \

If I then include packagegroup-custom-apps in my image I am also seeing the packages in packagegroup-custom-tools being built (but not included in the image) while building my image.

Is this behaviour correct? I would not expect the packages in packagegroup-custom-tools to be built if the packagegroup-custom-tools is not included in the image.

Many Thanks,
