bitbake bootstrap failure


I'm new to OE and Angstrom. I just configured my openembedded install
as documented and want to build the recipe.
However the system bails out with this error:

Error, lockfile path does not exist!: /home/ilyes/openembedded/tmp/deploy/glibc

Any ideas?


Here is the full log:
[ilyes@blackrock openembedded]$ bitbake -b
__builtin__:74: DeprecationWarning: the sets module is deprecated
NOTE: Preparing runqueue

OK. Got it ticking..

[ilyes@blackrock openembedded]$ bitbake beagleboard-demo-image
instead of
[ilyes@blackrock openembedded]$ bitbake -b

Did the job.
