I'm trying to follow the guide here for the Overo and I'm not getting very far.
http://www.gumstix.net/Setup-and-Programming/view/Build-system-overview/Hello-world-tutorial/111.html

I don't understand the directory structure listed there as the paragraph text and the diagram seem to contradict, but this is what I interpret it to be:

~/overo-oe/user.collection:
-- helloworld_1.0.0.bb
-- packages
-- -- helloworld
-- files
-- -- hello.c

~/overo-oe/tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/armv7a/


bitbake helloworld
yields neither errors nor creates package

I've tried renaming "packages" to "recipes" as well as moving the helloworld_1.0.0.bb file inside packages/helloworld.

What am I missing?
