I think I have solved the first part of my issue by changing the build/conf/local.conf BBFILES var to include both directories, space separated.
Would still like to know if files in the user.collection/recipies/tasks directory would override the base onces.
I am trying to build custom recipes. I have created the user.collection directory in my build area, and updated the BBPATH var. I have put my image recipes in user.collection/recipes/images but bitbake can not locate them to build? Am I missing something here?
Also, will .bb files placed in the user.collection directory override the ones in the openembedded/recipes directory?
