I am having the same experience. Is it so that the Yocto project has abandoned Angstrom, and is now on Ubuntu?


I am also puzzled by that runlevel is returning "1", I would expect 3 or 5.


There is no /etc/inittab, so how do we customize?


There is nothing in /etc/init.d/


Best regards

Here are some basic doubts that i have. I installed the following profile on a sdcard



I succesfully boot from sdcard

Booting from mmc ...

## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 82000000 ...

   Image Name:   Linux-3.5.0

   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)

   Data Size:    3462040 Bytes = 3.3 MiB

   Load Address: 80008000

   Entry Point:  80008000

   Verifying Checksum ... OK

   Loading Kernel Image ... OK


But apparently it's Ubuntu

dmesg | grep "Linux version"

[    0.000000] Linux version 3.5.0 (ubuntu@ip-10-252-89-38) 

1)So what's going on? I am happy with Ubuntu but why would someone label Ubuntu as Angstrom and put it up for download?


2) Everytime i need to create following directory

mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial


The next boot it's gone.


3)I can't seem to install anything using apt-get.


root@overo:~# apt-get install build-essential
