fetcher errors building kernel


i'm having fetcher errors building angstrom kernel for beaglebone:

Summary: 2 tasks failed:
kernel/module-init-tools/module-init-tools-cross_3.16.bb, do_fetch
core/meta/recipes-devtools/opkg-utils/opkg-utils_svn.bb, do_fetch


1) ERROR: Function failed: Fetcher failure for URL: 'http://kernel.org/
2) WARNING: Failed to fetch URL svn://svn.openmoko.org/trunk/src/host/;module=opkg-utils;proto=http

for the first, the requested revision doesn't seem to exist; the most
recent i see is module-init-tools-3.15, but substituting naturally
results in a checksum mismatch...

for the second, http://svn.openmoko.org seems to be entirely
unresponsive. i wonder if there's some other way to obtain opkg-

any advice? sorry to be a pain; i'm (obviously!) new to both angstrom
and openembedded...

a million thanks!



I have also recently revisited openembedded - albeit not for the
Beagleboard. I came across your post searching for your problem 2!

To fix 1) I was able to find a kernel mirror and change
KERNELORG_MIRROR in conf/bitbake.conf - I used "http://

I've been unable to resolve the opkg-utils one though; I can't seem to
find that anywhere.

Here's hoping someone else has some ideas....


Get kernel source from www.kernel.org and try.
You need to edit .config file by menuconfig.


i was able to get the requested version of module-init-tools from an
ftp mirror. i stuck it in {oe}/source/downloads, and bitbake generated
a .done file for it. so that's cool.

the openmoko svn seems to have recovered, so you might have better
luck now ( i did)

anyways the kernel is built. hooray! moving along...
