patch apply for .bb file


NIKHIL PATIL
 

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 .

       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)

      douts :-
        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 .
