Good morning Andrew! Have you tried from scratch (ie, fresh repo init/sync)? 
I am too very curious to find out why this is happening.

Well I did a bit more playing around, basically trying to either download the

cleaning virtual/kernel (cleansstate and cleanall), it removes the directory

downloads/git2/  So I made an empty
directory with the same name and used touch to create the .done file.  Then
I ran bitbake -c configure virtual/kernel.  This is what came out

So indeed it looks as though it's trying to grab the omap-3.2 branch instead
of the am335x-3.2 branch.  Here's a copy of my


DESCRIPTION = "Linux kernel for OMAP processors"


BOOT_SPLASH ?= "logo_linux_clut224-generic.ppm"
PV = "3.2"

S = "${WORKDIR}/git"

SRC_URI = "git://;branch=am335x-3.2;protocol=git
           file://defconfig \
           file://${BOOT_SPLASH} \

Pretty weird.  At this point it might be a lot easier to start from scratch
but I'm really interested as to what is causing the problems.
Comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
