I'm trying to compile Yocto from sources as described in the quick

I tried compiling the Laverne branch on a cloned Poky git repo. It
also fails when processing the acl package. Any workarounds? Is there
any log file I can look at for more details?
You can find log files in the build directory with a relative
path like .../tmp/work/*/acl*/temp

In particular, look at the log.do_unpack file for clues

This is what I see:

$ cat armv5te-poky-linux-gnueabi/acl-2.2.49-r0/temp/log.do_unpack
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

The mirror where bb is configured to get acl from,,
is down. I'll try to get it from the Savannah site.
I've sent out the SRC_URI fixes to use correct Savannah site.

BTW, if the mirror site is down, you should still get a correct tar ball from
pre-configured poky mirrors (, ...). Please let's know if those
mirrors don't take effect to you.
