This is what I have done except from the part of changing the SRCREV.

What I do not understand is why the line file://rc8-to-final.diff;patch=1 \
needs to be in this .bb file. Should it not only appear within linux-omap3_2.6.30.bb?

Now I would like to ask about SRCREV and how I should best use it. I realise it will control which version of the repository I will get, but are there any rules to guarantee you get a good image?

I only raise this concern as I seem to be getting random results when I build and run my image. I was running kernel 2.6.29.x, but since moving to 2.6.30 I seem to be having various issues like:

1. If I modify the kernel to include smsc911x I still need to modify /etc/modules to get ethernet to work, but when I was running 2.6.29 changing the kernel was all I had to do to get ethernet working.

2. When I boot I cannot get wireless ethernet to work.

It all started to go wrong when I did a git pull after noticing an update to qt4-embedded-gles_4.5.2.bb which was preventing me compiling qt4-embedded_4.5.2.

After I did the git pull I deleted my tmp directory and rebuilt from scratch, but I am quickly losing confidence in the source that I now have.

Did you have any problems like this when ascending the learning curve?

       It's easy, just copy paste the existing linux-omap3_2.6.30.bb recipe
and linux-omap3-2.6.30 folder, to your overo-oe/user.collection/
recipes/linux folder

and then edit the bb file and update the SRCREV, and remove that rc8-
to-final.patch from the list of patches in the SRC_URI_append field.

Then at the top of the bb file, make an entry DEFAULT_PREFERENCE = "1"

and then type

cd overo-oe
bitbake linux-omap3-2.6.30

this will cause the v2.6.30 kernel to be built.

Keep in mind to retain some of the gumstix patches for hsmmc, madc,
etc, that are specific to the overo.
