VIA Yocto notes

setup-environment script

if [ -e sources/oe-core ]; then



. ./oe-init-build-env $CWD/$1 > /dev/null

# if conf/local.conf not generated, no need to go further
if [ ! -e conf/local.conf ]; then
    clean_up && return 1

However, this seems not working as intended. Instead, I see the following message on console:

Your configuration files at build have not been touched.

which is at the end of the script:

if [ -n "$generated_config" ]; then
  echo "Your configuration files at $1 have not been touched."

The part executed after conf/local.conf check is dealing with EULA and it doesn’t seem necessary to be ran every login.

I edited setup_environment script, but it is reset with the following message:

The project root content has been updated. Please run setup_environment again.

This was because the script ./setup_environment needs to be identical to sources/base/setup_environment. Edit the one in sources/base directory.

$ . ./setup_environment
$ bitbake via-image-gui

Build failure

It looks like lib/ was created via attr.

$ bitbake -c cleanall attr
$ bitbake acl

Then I got another error:

ERROR: The recipe attr is trying to install files into a shared area when those files already exist. Those files and their manifest location are:

Removed these files.

Hang up

after a while, it went wrong.

Currently 4 running tasks (560 of 757):
0: perl-5.20.0-r1 do_compile (pid 26621)
1: python-2.7.3-r0.3 do_configure (pid 18071)
2: db-6.0.30-r0 do_package (pid 23166)
3: gmp-6.0.0-r0 do_compile (pid 2873)
  • The host machine’s console is not responding.
  • The host machine is not responding to ssh.

Powered it off and restarted.

Disks looked okay.

$ df

I see a lot of errors:

I could just run docker again and it worked. It may happen again though.
