still trying to get a successful "bitbake base-image" for angstrom on BB

i apologize for continuing to gnaw on this issue but i'd like to
resolve whatever problems keep me from getting a full "bitbake
base-image" for angstrom. here's my working environment:

  * fully-updated fedora 11 preview
  * OE "" branch
  * hand-rolled bitbake 1.8.12, built from tarball, installed in /usr/bin
  * local.conf: MACHINE = "beagleboard"

so, the first question -- if i want to start clean (but without having
to delete all my downloads), all i do is remove the entire
"angstrom-dev" directory. is that sufficient? i'm not aware of any
intermediate results being stashed anywhere else and that seems like
the safest way to not have any leftover cruft messing up a new build.

  and here's the current bitbake error:

+ install -m 0644
install: cannot stat
No such file or directory
ERROR: function do_install failed
ERROR: see log in /home/rpjday/oe/angstrom-dev/work/armv7a-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/glibc-2.6.1-r16/temp/log.do_install.14316

NOTE: Tasks Summary: Attempted 428 tasks of which 0 didn't need to be rerun and 1 failed.
ERROR: '/home/rpjday/oe/openembedded/recipes/glibc/' failed

  and here's the salient part of the aforementioned log file (which
doesn't really provide any extra info):

+ install -m 0644
install: cannot stat `/home/rpjday/oe/angstrom-dev/work/armv7a-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/glibc-2.6.1-r16/glibc-2.6.1/sunrpc/rpcsvc/bootparam_prot.h':
No such file or directory

  i'm open to suggestions, and i'm willing to keep testing fixes until
this finally works.


Why? Following will get you something working, while using the .dev branch you will get serious breakage everyday. The stable/2009 branch also includes a proper copy of bitbake.



yup, i just noticed that so i'm back on the stable branch.


I just built base-image against stable on Fedora 8.
