Hi Trevor,

Is the overo-2011.03 branch of
git://gitorious.org/gumstix-oe/mainline.git still considered the
official branch? Is it what we should be using?

I think it is. However, I had some trouble while compiling my linux system using the overo-2011.03 branch.
The first one was due to openssl that did not compile under Oneiric (gcc 4.6).
The second is due to fakeroot (see below).

I noticed that fakeroot 1.9.6 does not appear to be available anymore
on the debian ftp archive. I think this patch from OE mainline is

I have tried to apply this patch, but it does not work. The fakeroot_1.51.1.bb file is missing. I updated the patch then.

If it applies, could it be added to the gumstix tree?

I have cloned the gumstix-oe/mainline repository and commited two patches linked to openssl and fakeroot.
With these modification, the build succeeded, and my Overo has correctly booted on my microSD card.

You can either directly clone my repository (gitorious.org/~charles/gumstix-oe/mainline) and checkout the overo-2011.03 branch if you use gcc 4.6, or just clone the official branch, and cherry-pick my commit about fakeroot 1.15.1.

Good luck ;)
