Hi all,

I have followed this tutorial (
in order to create my own recipe for the helloworld example (from section
5.3.1 of Yocto dev-manual:
I have configured the following layers and recipe:
I have also added my meta-test layer to conf/bblayers.conf and I have
modified my conf/local.conf to add IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " helloworld". I
am creating a core-image-minimal for a qemuarm target.

My problem is that I get the following error "Function failed: do_rootfs"
after running bitbake core-image-minimal. When I check the log file, I find
this error: "E: Package 'helloworld' has no installation candidate". In
addition, in my build directory build/tmp/deploy/deb/armv5te/, I find only
the helloworld-dbg.deb and helloworld-dev.deb. The log_do.compile (located
in build/tmp/work/armv5te-poky-linux-gnueabi/helloworld/1.0-r0/temp)
indicates "NOTE: nothing to compile".

I have checked that I am not getting the same errors posted in these
previous discussions:

I would be grateful for any hint about this,

Best regards,
