Should the example note this? Would it be best to specifically say to

I think some text needs to be added. I uncommented the SRC_URI line and
I still fail building the image. The failure is related to kernel tools:

ERROR: kern-tools-native: md5 data is not matching for

ERROR: kern-tools-native: The new md5 checksum is

This one is actually fixed on master, but poky-extras .. is just that
'extra', so this may still be alive in that repo.

This wouldn't need to be documented, since it's a bug/issue, and not
something that would persist.

What release are you pairing poky extras with ? I can always create a
branch to make sure they are consistent.
I was using Denzil because the snapshot noted in the example does not exist. So there is another doc issue.

I can always test on Master, but the docs need to be update to reflect something that will work to completion without errors, IMHO.

In the example in The Developement Manual v1.2 in Appendix B Section
B.1.7, it states that you need to put in the statement:

KSRC_linux_yocto_3_2 ?="/home/scottrif/linux-yocto-3.2.git"

into the appropriate .bbappend file way now in the poky-extra directory
structure. If I look at that file, |linux-yocto_3.2.bbappend| , I seen a
SRC_URI line, immediately after our inserted KSRC statement, that is
commented out:


Should that line be uncommented or is the SRC_URI already defaulted
somewhere to use the newly defined KSRC_linux_yocto_3_2 variable?
It should be uncommented. I commented them by default, since the extras
repository is a bit of a collection ground. If they are uncommented, and
combined with the AUTOREV also set in the file, you are forced to fix
all files, versus just the one you want.
