Hey Scott,

The issue is that since it never gets past perl, the tools it uses to cross-compile are never made.  That directory is still empty.

Trying to build any of those targets fails, because it can't build miniperl.  My output from the bitbake -s is the same as yours, I just can't build them.

I'd really hate to start from scratch, but I'm getting closer and closer to formatting this drive and reinstalling it all from scratch as 32 bit instead of 64...  Not SURE if that will fix this, but I need to do something....

Before you get drastic and delete tmp. What does this give you

$OETMP/sysroots/x86_64-linux/usr/lib$ ls -l *pthread*

I get this.

-rw-r--r-- 1 scott scott  6044 2011-04-08 05:43 libpthread-stubs.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 scott scott  1039 2011-04-08 05:43 libpthread-stubs.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott scott    25 2011-04-08 05:43 libpthread-stubs.so -> libpthread-stubs.so.0.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott scott    25 2011-04-08 05:43 libpthread-stubs.so.0 -> libpthread-stubs.so.0.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 scott scott 10352 2011-04-08 05:43 libpthread-stubs.so.0.0.0

If you don't see this, then take a look at this output

scott@quad:~/overo-oe$ bitbake -s | grep thread

clthreads                                          0:2.4.0-r0                         
libpthread-stubs                                  0:0.2-r2.0                         
libpthread-stubs-native                            0:0.2-r2.0                         
libpthread-stubs-nativesdk                        0:0.2-r2.0 

Maybe you should try building one or more of these

bitbake libpthread-stubs


bitbake libpthread-stubs-native

I'm just guessing, not trying anything. It will be much faster
then a tmp delete.
