Hi JF,

I add the same problem you had with the man page stuff, try this patch.

thanks, that patch fixed it from a build point of view. now I'll build the image again and see what happens on the hardware.

As expected the new image booted and ran the iperf 2.0.5 just fine.  Are there any plans to add this tool to the Yocto project??
