Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M3 (Feature Freeze)

Next Deadline: 23rd Aug. 2021 YP 3.4 M3 build (Feature Freeze)


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • We are now at feature freeze for YP 3.4
  • Rust was merged into core, it was touch and go whether we could/would or not. Unfortunately there was an error found after merging with cargo-native on centos7 hosts which we still need to resolve before building M3.
  • Fixes for glibc 2.34 and pseudo were merged however this uses a binary shim and isn’t an ideal way to solve the issues. We need to find a way to have active development on pseudo with investigation into possible replacement approaches.
  • A kernel issue introduced in recent kernel module versioning changes needs to resolved before we can build M3.
  • The glibc 2.34 upgrade caused issues with docker and the clone3 syscall returning EPERM instead of ENOSYS. We will likely have to add a workaround to our glibc until released versions of docker have the upstream fix.
  • Intermittent issues are ongoing and help is very much welcome on these issues. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT
