Description

Problem Description

 

Incompatible git version problem occurs during MAKE phase of the project. IE IDP installation is successful. After this I’m switching to terminal and do ./configure with parameters – also successful. 
And after its building an image using “make” – fails with incompatible git version.

Thanks in advance.

PS I double checked and all combinations what I have – repo created on 1.9 git with 1.7 client and repo created with 1.7 git with 1.9 client works fine.

 

Workaround

Update: When I build an IDP/WRL5 platform project, I get the following error: Unsupported version of git (1.9.1). I originally ran the Wind River host packages install script and for Ubuntu it must have pulled down the latest version of git. I fixed this by removing git-native from ASSUME_PROVIDED in layers/oe-core/meta/conf/bitbake.conf when the project was first configured. This ensured that a compatible version of git was built and used. The platform project then built correctly. Chris Cassidy (Jul 17 '14)
