is an example where it triggers this error, but doesn't trigger the more common host-user-contaminated QA error (unless you happenedĀ to use UID 1001 on host for the user running bitbake).
I have here a similar problem with one of my own packages. It happens that my bitbake user uses UID 1001. Do you have more information why this is a problem? Should it be enough to change the UID to 1002 to get everything running?
No, you should chown the files to be owned by the expected user which exists in the image (probably root like in my commit). Changing the UID of the user on host is very bad work around (as it will fail for the next person building the same image with host user 1001.
Ok. Thanks. I can confirm that the change of the bitbake users UID to 1111 did not solve the issue.
I will open a new thread because I don't see why this fails. I use oe_runmake in my do_install function and got the impression that oe_runmake should take care of this via fakeroot.
