Re: Fetch private gitlab repo using ssh with Yocto recipe #bitbake

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for your answer.

That's great. Even I am building inside a docker container. I tried with creating a "config" file in .ssh directory. But I still have same issue.

Can you please let me know how to "forward SSH_AGENT into it to be able
to fetch from internal projects without the need to mount the key into the container."? I never did that before.

Thanks in advance.

I use almost the same, just without submodules.

SRC_URI =
"git://git@...:1234/group/project.git;protocol=ssh"

It should "just work" if ssh is able to find your key. I often build in
a docker container, so I have to forward SSH_AGENT into it to be able
to fetch from internal projects without the need to mount the key into
the container. I don't really have any insight for builds outside
docker, if git clone works, the bitbake fetcher should too.

You should not need a ssh config file.
