Thank you.

I'm bitbaking now with 

$ bitbake omap3-console-image
Last time I tried this I ended up with an error and bricked my Linux 10.04 install (which is why I'm kinda frustrated with this whole thing).

At this point I do not understand how to make my own recipe. All I really NEED to do is compile a few C and C++ programs (which I CAN do on the Overo) but I want to know how to use bitbake properly.

Somewhere there was a bitbake tutorial for hello world. I'll have to track it down.

I dealt with packages through Synaptic Package Manager (comes in ubuntu
10.04) instead of apt-get. It is helpful to be able to search the package
names here. Also, you can start - I did - with only git and svn packages
installed. Once you start bitbaking, you will start getting errors related
to packages or not found commands which you will address by installing the
corresponding packages. The package correspondence can be deduced from the
error message. This should happen about 3 or 4 times only.

Once you start bitbaking, send us the next error. If it is within my scope,
I'm happy to help.

I'm sure you will make it!

Hello,

In my fresh intel based ubuntu 10.04, I installed openembedded for
overo-oe and followed all the 111.html instructions and now I have been
waiting for hours for one particular task of the

bitbake omap3-console-image

to complete.

Monitoring at linux level I see barely no activity on the xosview (cpu,
net, disk), nor with "top -u gumstix", nor is there file system growth.

Should I just wait and wait ?

Can we assume there is activity going on ?  Could it be that there is a
blocked process waiting for a never happening event ?

Info is greatly appreciated

following:

1. output of bitbake (task 1685 of 4370)
2. running gumstix processes (ps -u gumstix)
3. list of open files of python proc that corresponds to this task
