Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 9
Component/s: Build & Config


If a conffile has been deleted (common when building a debugfs) the status command will throw errors instead of handling that situation.

Errors were observed during Yocto build after setting IMAGE_GEN_DEBUGFS = "1" in WRL9 build.

We can see similar Errors here

Patch for this issue can be found here,


Temporary work around as suggested by Robert Yang:

diff --git a/meta/lib/oe/ b/meta/lib/oe/
index a348b97..ba072c0 100644

Steps to Reproduce

1) setup a qemu project in WRL9
 ./wrlinux-9/ --machines qemux86-64 --dl-layers

2) Add changes in build/conf/local.conf as below:

PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " nfs-utils-client logrotate"

3)Build the project
$ bitbake wrlinux-image-glibc-small
