BBMASK="uboot" results in attempt to build wrong kernel + failure

With BBMASK="uboot" in the local.conf file, an attempt to bitbake
openmoko-devel-image will result in the generic "linux_2.6.21.bb" bitbake recipe
being run, rather than "linux-gta01_2.6.21.5.bb" which I believe is correct.
The build fails.

There's no need to rebuild uboot every time a new rootfs is desired, so it would
be nice for this configuration to work properly.

This error has also been seen by user CM in IRC. From the logs:

Aug 18 11:00:34 <CM> rwhitby: I've been unable to build the kernel for two days
now, any hint where I should look to try to solve it? Even restarting from
scratch didn't help. http://rafb.net/p/1MD5Ck83.html

linux-gta01 needs uboot. If you mask dependencies out, then you can't build the
packages. You rather might want remove the respective dependency on u-boot.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

By default, rootfs image build no longer includes u-boot.
