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?

 

Thanks,

Nik
