i was just reminded by an e-mailer that i hadn't checked on why the
last attempt i made to build angstrom for the BB with the development
branch of OE failed, but after doing an update on OE a few minutes
ago, it now looks like it builds, so i'm just curious about what might
i've documented the exact steps i use in building angstrom for the
BB on my fedora 11 system here:
the last time i tried this (a few days ago), i tried to "bitbake
base-image", and the tail end of the output was:

i *thought* i'd set up everything properly. so just this morning, i
went back, did "git pull", then leaving angstrom-dev in place, just
ran "bitbake base-image" again, and it completed. strange.
to be methodical, i should remove the angstrom-dev directory and
build from scratch, but can anyone think of why that build from a few
days ago failed, but this morning, it worked? normally, i would have
thought that i'd failed to set the mmap properties properly, but it
doesn't appear that way.
thoughts? i think i'll start the build from scratch to verify this.
