LIN10-2468 : Changing the kernel type with LINUX_KERNEL_TYPE does not work

Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 17
Component/s: Build & Config


Recent changes to using the linux-yocto style kernel recipes, have prevented the older approach of simply selecting 'LINUX_KERNEL_TYPE' from working.

It is now stated in the documentation and local.conf template that the user should use 'PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel' to select the proper kernel recipe.

Steps to Reproduce

check conf/local.conf
