BBB build failure

I am having problems building Angstrom for BBB according to the instructions given in:

My console log is as follows:

I believe that Jason Kridner had mentioned earlier that 2012.12 was broken and to use 2013.06 instead. Could someone please guide me here, as the above mentioned instructions appear only to fetch v2012.12.




Hi Dave,

Simple workaround for that may work.
Someone removed branch ‘danny’ from the repository.
But what you can do is:

  1. take older copy of meta-linaro attached to that e-mail and unpack it somewhere on your local machine,
  2. just after downloading setup-scripts from git repository make a change in file \setup-scripts\sources\layers.txt in
    following line:


You need to provide local path to local meta-linaro older copy with ‘danny’ branch, e.g.;

And then run all scripts.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have an old copy that seems to work fine. I would still like to know how to move forward with Angstrom v2013.06 as Jason Kridner suggested previously. This seems a more attractive move in order to keep up to date.


Maybe that is the correct link:

“As of today the Angstrom v2013.06 release is officially Yocto Project 1.4 Compatible! To build that follow the instruction from the ‘Developers’ link above and use the ‘angstrom-v2013.06-yocto1.4’ branch of the setup-scripts repo.”

So basically cloning from the same address (git:// but then checking out and using ‘angstrom-v2013.06-yocto1.4’ branch instead of ‘master’.


Thanks a lot. This is getting clearer now :slight_smile:
