Building Ångström… One Step Beyond OpenEmbedded

This will be short and sweet…

To complete the Ångström build I followed the instructions here with the caveat that the OETREE environment variable was set to “/home/cmma/oe/stuff” vs. “/OE” as stated above. (‘cmma’ is the name on the account I am using to build this stuff.)

I added the OETREE definition to my .bashrc and also ensured that it was set the same in the ‘source-me.txt’ file after I downloaded it.

Also, it was not necessary to run the first 3 steps of the steps below as I’d already cloned the OE base.

    export OETREE="/OE"
    mkdir -p ${OETREE} && cd ${OETREE}
    git clone git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded.git openembedded
    cd openembedded
    git checkout origin/stable/2009 -b stable/2009

I simply ran (after setting OETREE properly):

    cd ${OETREE}/openembedded
    git checkout origin/stable/2009 -b stable/2009

I then continued as instructed in the link above. (I did add a ‘-f’ flag to the local.conf ‘cp’ command to force an overwrite of my previous local.conf file.)

Bitbake is currently on step 610 of 2946 and counting…
