Difficulty building kernel + Angstrom from source

Hi All,

I would like to be able to reliably build my own images for u-boot, the kernel, and the Angstrom rootfs. I have followed this guide in using Yocto / OE to do so, but no joy.

http://wp.angstrom-distribution.org/?page_id=53

It looks like this stuff is not fully baked for the bbb. When I tried to build the kernel, it failed while building the Linaro toolchain. When I tried to build Angstrom it failed with errors also.

Could someone please point me to the right place to look for source that will build reliably. I don’t really have the time or desire to be debugging OE and the build recipes. I really wish they had used a simpler tool like Buildroot for this.

Thanks,

Dallas

I found another related topic in this discussion group which helped me get past this.

I was able to build Angstrom just fine following these instructions.

I was able to build Angstrom just fine following these instructions.

These instructions are a little old. Use branch angstrom-v2014.06-yocto1.6

Thanks John. Do you by chance know how to build a flashing image for the bbb?

I noticed that there is no device tree image (dtb) file in my deploy directory after the build completes. What do I need to do to get one?
