BeagleBoardAndOpenEmbeddedGit: packages missing

Hi:
  I'm following the instructions in http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardAndOpenEmbeddedGit
and have gotten stuck. When running:

bitbake console-image

I get:

http://cgit.openembedded.net/cgit.cgi?url=openembedded/commit/&id=709c4d66e0b107ca606941b988bad717c0b45d9b

regards,

That fixed it. I just did

ln -s recipes packages

and it's doing something now.

Thanks for the quick response....

And now a new problem. Running bitbake console-image I get the
following:

The problem might have been from an earlier install. When running yum
install I got:

sudo yum install gtk-doc-tools g++ python-psyco build-essential
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package gtk-doc-tools available.
No package g++ available.
No package python-psyco available.
No package build-essential available.
Nothing to do

How do I get these to install?

Hello Mark,

make: GNUmakefile: Too many levels of symbolic links

Very likely, your softlink from packages/ to recipes/ is probably
recursively followed by one of the recipes.

Remove the softlink.

Also, maybe you are just running into a remaining issues (dangling
references) with the rename from "packages" to "recipes".

I have seen some commits to fix that, so I suggest you pull / update
again and retry.

Regards,

I had the same error. I manualy removed GNUmakefile and did manually a make.

Do you use directly the git from openembedded or a mirror?

Thanks for the suggestions.

I got rid of the symbolic link and my mv'ed packages to recipes. Then
I did

git pull
git checkout
bitbake console-image

The pull updated some things, but got the same symbolic link error.

Any other suggestions?

packages was renamed to recipes. Look for BBPATH and BBFILES and
change the references from packages to recipes.

Hopefully the docs are getting updated.

Robert:
  I see GNUmakefile was symlinked to itself. I removed it from the m4-
native-1.4.12-r0 directory and typed 'make'.

Now I'm running 'bitbake console-image' and it seems to be running
fine.

Thanks for the tip.

The instructions said:
git clone git://git.openembedded.net/openembedded
which I assume isn't a mirror.

It isn't. But I did see this failure only when using
http://repo.or.cz/r/openembedded.git
This night I did a full installation from openembedded.net and
everything was okay. Two ours ago installation from repo.or.cz failed
with this failure (and a few more).
