Thanks for your reply Dan,

How did you manage then to create your Open Embedded Build System?

Thanks,
Gutembert.

I haven’t yet.  Waiting for someone to either fix the download site or correct the howto.

 

I’ve managed to build a Debian (not Emdebian) root file system using debootstrap.  I haven’t tried building a kernel yet but there is a method to do so outlined in the gumstix wiki under ‘Debian’.  I’m new to this and have discovered that there are several different ways to do all this, I’m in the process of trying to figure them out.  Much to my disappointment I’ve found that many of the instructions on the gumstix site don’t work.

I just tested the instructions at
http://gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embedded-build-system.html
and they worked perfect fine for me; the download, the build... and I
tested the resulting image on my gumstix. No problems at all.

If anything I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Gumstix for
making the build instructions available in an easy-to-find location
and for having written easy-to-follow information on how to use
bitbake and OE to create successful builds from source. Where are the
instructions for building an image from sources for the Igloo board?
Panda board? Origen board? Snowball? Are they all 100% upstream in
Angstrom/OE? If they are there is no indication anywhere on their
websites stating that explicitly. And for all its openness I don't
think it is even remotely possible to generate at home the same
pre-built images Linaro creates for their releases. They provide
access to the source repositories of most of the components but they
seem to use some custom voodoo for putting their complete releases
together.

Nice!

I'm doing a similar project using
Linux/usb-gadgets/networkmanager/dnsmasq/iptables.  Seems to use a tad
less power than WinCE6 ;-)

I'm using it as a test project to get the kinks worked out of my Yocto
builds . . .

Images & details will appear on my web site when I get around to
documenting things.

Steve during my spelunking I did find your site. So thanks for the answer and for the useful information.
Everything works *except* the x-loader:

# mmc rescan 0
# fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} MLO
reading MLO

hangs here.
I've tried rebooting ? for help but fatls or even ext2ls gives no list.
My SD is a console-image I built on the sakoman site.

All the tasks on mtdN from a booted system work.
I guess I shall try setup from the u-boot env, but does anyone have any wise words for me please?

Thanks
James

Thank you Neil for your advice. I tried the V_BATT and GND connections at the
end opposite the USB OTG connector and the Overo FE boots and operates
normally.
I am afraid I have one more question: What pins should I use to power the
Thumbo board + Overo FE, so that the wireless will operate normally?

Hi William,

As the output of bitbake suggest, you need to install the following additional packages:
diffstat,texi2html,makeinfo,chrpath 

On ubuntu, you can do that with the following command:
'sudo apt-get install diffstat texi2html makeinfo chrpath'

Right at the bottom of your build it says:

There are 2 problems with your system:
1) you are missing packages required for the build (diffstat, texi2html, ...)
2) your (ubuntu?) system is using "dash" instead of "bash"

You'll need to figure out how to install the missing packages.

You'll need to reconfigure your system to use bash instead of dash:

Also it seems you haven't changed your /bin/sh to use bash instead of dash as suggested in gumstix's tutorial:

Note: If you are using an Ubuntu distribution, it is likely that /bin/sh is linked to /bin/dash. If this is the case, then you will need to change /bin/sh to link to /bin/bash. Neglecting to do this will cause target system init file corruption and your build image will not boot! Run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash" and answer no when asked whether you want to install dash as /bin/sh.

Hi William,

As the output of bitbake suggest, you need to install the following additional packages:
diffstat,texi2html,makeinfo,chrpath 

On ubuntu, you can do that with the following command:
'sudo apt-get install diffstat texi2html makeinfo chrpath'

I just tested the instructions at
http://gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embe
dded-build-system.html

and they worked perfect fine for me; the download, the build... and I
tested the resulting image on my gumstix. No problems at all.

If anything I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Gumstix for
making the build instructions available in an easy-to-find location
and for having written easy-to-follow information on how to use
bitbake and OE to create successful builds from source. Where are the
instructions for building an image from sources for the Igloo board?
Panda board? Origen board? Snowball? Are they all 100% upstream in
Angstrom/OE? If they are there is no indication anywhere on their
websites stating that explicitly. And for all its openness I don't
think it is even remotely possible to generate at home the same
pre-built images Linaro creates for their releases. They provide
access to the source repositories of most of the components but they
seem to use some custom voodoo for putting their complete releases
together.

Congratulation Trevor,

I would like to clarify about something: while creating your OE building system (by following the given procedure from the link), was your Gumstix device connected to your Computer or not?

Thanks,

My gumstix device was not connected to the computer during the OE build.

Whether or not a gumstix device is connected to the host computer
during the build is irrelevant; the build does not make use of the
device in any way. The build proceeds on the host computer completely
independent of any devices connected to it. You don't even have to own
a gumstix device to be able to make successful builds for it. You
could, for example, run your completed build in a hardware emulator
running on your host
(http://wiki.gumstix.org/index.php?title=Overo_emulation_in_qemu).

the directory "org.openembedded.dev" has been created but empty!! I am not able to follow other instructions (e.g git checkout etc) successfully. However, git clone http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git org.openembedded.dev  connected perfectly and did clone successfully.

Branch overo-2011.03 set up to track remote branch overo-2011.03 from
origin.
Switched to a new branch 'overo-2011.03'



bill@Vaio:~/overo-oe/bitbake$ git checkout 1.12.0
Note: checking out '1.12.0'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

  git checkout -b new_branch_name

HEAD is now at 2e667ba... Release 1.12.0

Hi Guys;

Thanks for the help J

 

I tried what you said and I still get the same message.

 

Also “sudo apt-get install” could not find the package “makeinfo”

 

Could it be that because it couldn’t find ‘makeinfo’ it didn’t install the others ??

Do I have to do a “bitbake –clean omap-console…” ??

I also had to apt-get install the other packages separately.
I must have been entering them wrong on the command line :-(

In reply to this post by William Pretty Security Inc
I've been trying to do a fresh install of the openembedded build system following the gumstix.org instructions on a Ubuntu 11.10 system. So I set bash as the preferred shell. These are the things that I have noted
Having pulled the basic openembedded and bitbake (1.12) I had an initial failure building pcre. Modified the system.conf file. the next failure was building native openssl . Bibtabke had pulled 1.0.0d I have 1.0.0.e installed. Modified and added openssl-native to the conf file. Now it is failing with fakeroot. it is trying to pull 1.9.6 off the debian ftp site. This is old and no longer hosted on the site. i have found a patch on the patch.openembedded.org site but am unsure how to apply it (This was the same issue with openssl)
So how do you use the patches off patch.openembedded.org. Where do you save them? How do you apply them?
thanks

Neglecting to do this will cause target system init file corruption and your build image will not boot! Run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash" and answer no when asked whether you want to install dash as /bin/sh.

Hi William,
 
As the output of bitbake suggest, you need to install the following additional packages:
diffstat,texi2html,makeinfo,chrpath 
 
On ubuntu, you can do that with the following command:
'sudo apt-get install diffstat texi2html makeinfo chrpath'

I just tested the instructions at
http://gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embe
dded-build-system.html

and they worked perfect fine for me; the download, the build... and I
tested the resulting image on my gumstix. No problems at all.

If anything I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Gumstix for
making the build instructions available in an easy-to-find location
and for having written easy-to-follow information on how to use
bitbake and OE to create successful builds from source. Where are the
instructions for building an image from sources for the Igloo board?
Panda board? Origen board? Snowball? Are they all 100% upstream in
Angstrom/OE? If they are there is no indication anywhere on their
websites stating that explicitly. And for all its openness I don't
think it is even remotely possible to generate at home the same
pre-built images Linaro creates for their releases. They provide
access to the source repositories of most of the components but they
seem to use some custom voodoo for putting their complete releases
together.

It is possible the network you are on does not permit access over the
git protocol, you would have to ask your system administrators for the
details. Are you able to pull other (smaller) repositories via git? As
an example (and completely unrelated to openembedded, gumstix, etc...)
do either of the following work for you:

$ git clone git://github.com/twoerner/qemu-image-builder.git gitclone
$ git clone https://twoerner@.../twoerner/qemu-image-builder.git
httpclone

? If the first one does not and the second one does then your network
is not allowing git access via the git protocol and you'll have to use
https for all your git clones. If neither work then there is some
other networking issue going on. Perhaps your network uses a proxy?

You can now delete the gitclone and httpclone directories.

This step should have worked. I tried it here and although it is much
much slower than using the git protocol it did eventually succeed for
me:

$ git clone https://git.gitorious.org/gumstix-oe/mainline.git
org.openembedded.org
Cloning into 'org.openembedded.org'...
$ ls
org.openembedded.org
$ du -sh org.openembedded.org
714M    org.openembedded.org/

Each step requires the previous to have been performed successfully.
There's no point going further in the procedure if the current step
fails.

That's good news, that means at least http access is successful. Maybe
you could try:

$ git clone http://git.gitorious.org/gumstix-oe/mainline.git
org.openembedded.org

This also works for me (but is slow too).

Both of these messages are exactly what one would expect if your build
was proceeding successfully.

I don't know that anyone has been able to perform a successful build
on Ubuntu 11.10, at least not without a bit of wrangling. I don't
really follow the issues building with Ubuntu, though, since I use
openSuSE (11.3, 11.4, and 12.1 work for me).

Can't Build System Checkout for Gumstix [ Again ] Solved.

William Pretty Security Inc
In reply to this post by garry.allen

Hi All;

 

First of all here is what I did.

 

1)            I installed the missing required files separately. Putting a space between the names on the command line didn’t work.

 

2)            I used “texinfo” instead of “makeinfo”. The latter seems to have gone away.

 

3)            I changed “dash” to “bash”.

 

4)            I did the “bitbake [filename].” And it worked like a charm.

 

A couple of things from other posts:

 

I am using the company network to access the internet, so there is no proxy or filters.

The version of Linux I am using is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx.

The software was compiled on a quad core i7 machine with 2GB of RAM.

 

I hope this helps somebody.

 

Bill
