Hi Dan,

Can you do me a favor since it seems you have a broken system.

I have a script in this project, [], that supposedly
tries to figure out if you have everything necessary for OE installed
on an Ubuntu system.

Since I have only tested it on artifically broken systems, I wonder
how it will do on yours that may or may not be broken.

You can clone the project or just grab the python script. It's small.

$ git clone git://

$ cd oe-build-essentials-project

(Look at to make sure I'm not hacking you, then run)
$ ./

Send me the results or post them to the list. Doesn't matter. I'd
appreciate it.
