Hi all,
  I am attempting to get any window manager build for gumstix to complete. The microwindows-snapshot.bb fails at do_rootfs as does the microwindows.bb file and I am unable to find why they fail. I attempted the Qt build but my system complains of libraries that are not cross-compiler libs. I have attempted a few other builds in the com.gumstix.collection/packages dir and have found a common issue with the ones I have attempted. do_fetch for util-macros_1.1.5.bb fails to complete. I have checked the files that are referenced in bitbake .bb files and the destination file is not in /usr/sources (not ftpget has occured) and the required .inc file is in place.
I'm running FC8 and using OE on a Vertex gumstix with a Samsung 4.3" display attached.
Here is the error I get at bitbake run time:

Does anyone understand this error?
