Maybe I am missing something here but wouldnt it have been easier to make the iputils recipe not build the docbook parts? Since this seems to be an 11.04 issue and its not even a released version yet. Just my opinion, as I have had to fix recipes that were "fixed" by just removing things that others may want to actually use. Not saying I honestly care about iputils, just dont see this as the best route. Great work as always though :)

Here's an idea. What about getting rid of iputils altogether?

The ping and traceroute are already provided by busybox seem to
work good enough on a minimal image.

Here are some dependency trees.

scott@quad:~/overo-oe$ bitbake -g omap3-console-image

scott@quad:~/overo-oe$ ./ -r -t iputils

Package [ iputils ] is needed by

scott@quad:~/overo-oe$ ./ -r -t docbook-utils-native

Package [ docbook-utils-native ] is needed by

scott@quad:~/overo-oe$ ./ -r -t docbook-sgml-dtd-3.1-native

Package [ docbook-sgml-dtd-3.1-native ] is needed by

Package [ sgmlspl-native ] is needed by

So the packages causing problems


are all getting included because [iputils] wants them for its
documentation (which probably doesn't even get installed) and
[iputils] is only needed by [task-proper-tools].

I commented out all the iputils stuff from the task-proper-tools recipe.

The omap3-console-image built without errors from an overo-oe repo pull
last night.

I'll try a desktop image next.
