so I'm a bit at a loss. I admit, I've not yet been using Yocto for a long time. I'm trying to use base-utils as provided by packagegroup-core-base-utils to have a more full featured set of base utils instead of busybox. It all builds just fine, however, whatever I do (using dunfell), it ends up with a kernel panic during boot.

I added the following to local.conf on a clean clone of poky:



PREFERRED_PROVIDER_base-utils = "packagegroup-core-base-utils"
VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_base-utils = "packagegroup-core-base-utils"
VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_base-utils-hwclock = "util-linux-hwclock"
VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_base-utils-syslog = ""
Hi Paul,

Try adding:

VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_base-utils-syslog = "syslog"

as shown on:

I would expect that since you have systemd, you'd have the systemd journal as well so
you wouldn't need syslog but it would be good to do a sanity check.

If that doesn't help, show us what the kernel panic is saying.
Is this with a custom BSP and if so can you reproduce with qemux86-64?

Try the same things using poky on the master branch if you can.


Does anyone have any idea how to get this to work?
