Hello, I have checked out the Yocto version of Angstrom, and i'm trying to get started with it. My goal is to update a device which is running an ancient version of angstrom, and on which i have outdated programs running.
i executed a bitbake of dropbear (which is one of the programs to be updated) for my at91sam9x5ek machine, but when i tried to install the ipkg on my machine, it was complaining about some missing dependencies. I found almost all of the dependencies back in the build/tmp/work tree of yocto, except for libc6. At first i copied the wrong libc6 ( i searched for the dependencies with "find . -name DepName", and ended up in the directory for armv5e, which is not my architecture(should be armv5te). When i tried to install that ipk of libc6, the package manager refused to install it. It took me a while before i realised that it was due to the priority of the architecture (the currently installed version of libc6 is coming from the angstrom feeds, and is compiled for armv5te, so the priority of the installed libc6 package was higher then the one i tried to install (the one compiled for armv5e). So it seems that, even if the version is newer, the package manager gives prio to the correct architecture. I searched for libc6, but could not find it in the armv5te version. So now my (newbie) question: how do i adapt the yocto/bitbake scripts so that i get a libc6 compiled for armv5te? _______________________________________________ Angstrom-distro-devel mailing list Angstromfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.linuxtogo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/angstrom-distro-devel
