Coreutils missing in Yocto 2.6.3 sdk

Agnes Amreetha Joseph Arulraj



We are working on Yocto 2.6.3. We are generating the sdk using “bitbake core-image-sato-sdk -c populate_sdk”.

After installation of sdk, we observed, usr/bin/*.coreutils are not available.

However, in the build directory, rpm’s are generated in deploy-rpms. And coreutils are present there, but they are not shipped into the sdk.


Could you guide us in this ASAP. This will help us in proceeding.


Thanks & Regards,

J. Agnes Amreetha

probably coreutils package isnot explicitly installed in the SDK.

You can add packages to the SDK using two variables:

Hi Alessio,

Thank you for the reply.

We have added TOOLCHAIN_TARGET_TASK += “coreutils” in core-image-sato.bbappend file. We have added below lines in “packagegroup-base.bbappend”


RDEPENDS_packagegroup-base-extended = " \

                coreutils \

              coreutils-dbg \

              coreutils-doc \


We have added “ IMAGE_INSTALL_append  = " coreutils" “ in template.conf file.


Files in coreutils-dbg and coreutils-doc are coming in SDK. But bin’s in coreutils are missing, for yocto 2.6.3.


Same we have followed for yocto 2.2.4, All coreutils binaries in bundling in SDK.
Is there anything else, we need to add in Yocto 2.6.3, to get the coreutils bin in the final sdk?
