I figured this out from this earlier post:

 

http://www.nabble.com/the-bitbake-root:root-fix-td17542552.html

 

If this “Illegal characters” and the “root:root” problem was discovered so long ago why hasn’t it been fixed?

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Error (illegal characters) on bitbake robostix

 

I’m trying to get i2c working on my recently purchased robotics wifi pack FCC but I can’t build robostix for some reason.

 

I found another post that said to edit the robostix.bb for an svn login issue (root:root) so I did that and it got past that problem…

My current problem is what looks like a bad file name when using ipkg-build…How do I troubleshoot this?

 

I’m using colinux with a debian distro if that helps…
