I've been trying to do a fresh install of the openembedded build system following the gumstix.org instructions on a Ubuntu 11.10 system. So I set bash as the preferred shell. These are the things that I have noted
Having pulled the basic openembedded and bitbake (1.12) I had an initial failure building pcre. Modified the system.conf file. the next failure was building native openssl . Bibtabke had pulled 1.0.0d I have 1.0.0.e installed. Modified and added openssl-native to the conf file. Now it is failing with fakeroot. it is trying to pull 1.9.6 off the debian ftp site. This is old and no longer hosted on the site. i have found a patch on the patch.openembedded.org site but am unsure how to apply it (This was the same issue with openssl)
So how do you use the patches off patch.openembedded.org. Where do you save them? How do you apply them?
thanks
Garry Allen

Hi Guys;

I tried what you said and I still get the same message.
 
Also “sudo apt-get install” could not find the package “makeinfo”
 
Could it be that because it couldn’t find ‘makeinfo’ it didn’t install the others ??
Do I have to do a “bitbake –clean omap-console…” ??

Also it seems you haven't changed your /bin/sh to use bash instead of dash as suggested in gumstix's tutorial:
 
Note: If you are using an Ubuntu distribution, it is likely that /bin/sh is linked to /bin/dash. If this is the case, then you will need to change /bin/sh to link to /bin/bash. Neglecting to do this will cause target system init file corruption and your build image will not boot! Run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash" and answer no when asked whether you want to install dash as /bin/sh.

Hi William,
 
As the output of bitbake suggest, you need to install the following additional packages:
diffstat,texi2html,makeinfo,chrpath 
 
On ubuntu, you can do that with the following command:
'sudo apt-get install diffstat texi2html makeinfo chrpath'

I just tested the instructions at
http://gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/61-using-the-open-embe
dded-build-system.html

and they worked perfect fine for me; the download, the build... and I
tested the resulting image on my gumstix. No problems at all.

If anything I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Gumstix for
making the build instructions available in an easy-to-find location
and for having written easy-to-follow information on how to use
bitbake and OE to create successful builds from source. Where are the
instructions for building an image from sources for the Igloo board?
Panda board? Origen board? Snowball? Are they all 100% upstream in
Angstrom/OE? If they are there is no indication anywhere on their
websites stating that explicitly. And for all its openness I don't
think it is even remotely possible to generate at home the same
pre-built images Linaro creates for their releases. They provide
access to the source repositories of most of the components but they
seem to use some custom voodoo for putting their complete releases
together.
