patch apply for .bb file
Hi team ,
We are tring to apply to patch to default .bb file. means in gpsd_3.17.bb file we did some changes but after taking patch we are not able to apply it .
steps followd :-
1) git status
2) git diff yocto_build/meta-openembedded/meta-oe/recipes-navigation/gpsd/gpsd_3.17.bb > 0001_add_line_in_gpsd.patch
3) git checkout yocto_build/meta-openembedded/meta-oe/recipes-navigation/gpsd/gpsd_3.17.bb
after these i applied gpsd patch in /yocto_build/meta-intel-leafhill/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-intel/leafhill.scc file but after appling getting following errors .
[INFO]: Context reduced git-am of .kernel-meta//patches//patches/0001_add_line_in_gpsd.patch with "git am" did not work, trying "apply".| error: yocto_build/meta-openembedded/meta-oe/recipes-navigation/gpsd/gpsd_3.17.bb: does not exist in index
| [ERROR]: Application of .kernel-meta//patches//patches/0001_add_line_in_gpsd.patch failed.
| Patch needs to be refreshed. Sample resolution script:
| ERROR: Could not apply patches for intel-corei7-64.
| ERROR: Patch failures can be resolved in the linux source directory /data/nikhil/inti_dmsv/yocto_build/build/tmp/work-shared/intel-corei7-64/kernel-source)
1) Can we apply a patch to default code means (files in meta or files( .bb ) in meta-intel folder, etc) ? because we are able to apply a patch for kernel code (driver file ) , but for .bb file patch appling we are facing issue .
2) how to apply a patch to default .bb file in meta layers ? can u please tell procedure .
thanks in advance .
