Dear all,

I run into problems while following this http://www.gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embedded-build-system.html . I guess that this means that the latest version in the repository is not working. How can I checkout a bitbakable version? Or am I doing something wrong?

The output follows:

$ bitbake omap3-console-image
