I am new to the gumstix openembedded system and open source tools in general.
I just got the bitbake omap3-console-image to run to completion using parallels guest host Ubuntu 10.4 on a macbook pro.

after it finished I reran the command "bitbake omap3-console-image" thinking that it would come back stating that the system is up to date and no tasks needed to be run. Instead it re-runs the last three tasks.

Is this normal ? or do I need to look into this more ?
