I successfully setup the oe with ubuntu 7.10 and completed the "setting up a
build environment" steps (bitbake gumstix-basic-image completed OK)
now I'm working through the helloworld example and like so many posts before
can't get bitbake to run. I've read through the similar questions posted to
this list but no one pertains to the exact errors I'm encountering:
If I run bitbake helloworld from my home directory, I get:
ERROR: no files to build.
NOTE: Parsing finished. 0 cached, 0 parsed, 0 skipped, 0 masked.
ERROR: No providers of build target helloworld (for )
As an aside, I don't understand why there are references to
~/gumstix/gumstix-oe since the ~/gumstix/ directory appears empty and
everything instead is in ~/gumstix-oe/
this seems OK:
Back to helloworld, I created a Makefile and the whole directory structure
and source code as specified in the helloworld example and at least could
get it to do something more by cd'ing to the package directory:
alex:~/gumstix-oe/user.collection/packages/helloworld$ bitbake helloworld
NOTE: Not using a cache. Set CACHE = <directory> to enable.
NOTE: Handling BitBake files: | (0001/0001) [100 %]
NOTE: Parsing finished. 0 cached, 1 parsed, 0 skipped, 0 masked.
NOTE: Resolving missing task queue dependencies

NOTE: The included, default BB base.bbclass does not define a useful default
NOTE: Try running the 'listtasks' task against a .bb to see what tasks are
NOTE: Tasks Summary: Attempted 1 tasks of which 0 didn't need to be rerun
and 0 failed.
Now the helloworld tutorial says something about a default build task, but
I peeked in my ~/gumstix-oe/bitbake/conf/bitbake.conf file and it seems
this error message I'm getting is set in this file and I don't see anything
referencing a default do_build() process.
I've been reading the bitbake manual and it seems that everything is setup
properly in my directory structure.
What am I missing?
