I'm working on getting VLC built for my overo processor and I'm running into
something that's.. well.. sort of strange..
I had built the kernel and created a user.collection directory for it, and
the build went fine. Now, when I type bitbake vlc, I get a lot of
references to the user.colleciton directory again and bitbake is failing for
vlc, but with a weird message I've not encountered..
I had added several patch files to the linux/linux-omap3 directory since the
build was complaining that they don't exist.. and after a while, it spits

Any ideas what's going on here? do I need to get rid of the user.collection
directory and try again?
Say you can or say you can't, either way you will be right.
