bitbake omap3-console-image

bitbake linux-omap3-2.6.33 (on 2010-08-15)

if the build errors out on expat-2.0.1


if  the md5 and sha simply do not match

update the .bb file

emacs org.openembedded.dev/recipes/expat/expat_2.0.1.bb

to make the  checksums what they are found to be!

if  glib-2.0 (task 484?) fails due to a glib-genmarshal not in the path, just do a

bitbake glib-2.0

(running its own 617 tasks) and then do a

bitbake omap3-console-image


failing 1787 or 3032 (iputils)? sudo apt-get install sgmlspl
