Digi Embedded Yocto - Adding package(s)


The latest Digi Embedded Yocto 1.6 - First Steps Guide (Rev. D) has a brief section that outlines how to add packages to a target image.

I have followed the example there to include a line in the local.conf configuration file, including the leading space as required.

In particular, I am hoping to add the limited shell package, lshell. When I attempt to make the image, I get errors from bitbake related to this package, viz.

ERROR: Nothing RPROVIDES ‘lshell’ (but /usr/local/dey-1.6/sources/meta-digi/meta-digi-dey/recipes-core/images/dey-image-minimal-lshell.bb RDEPENDS on or otherwise requires it)
NOTE: Runtime target ‘lshell’ is unbuildable, removing…
Missing or unbuildable dependency chain was: [‘lshell’]
ERROR: Required build target ‘dey-image-minimal-lshell’ has no buildable providers.
Missing or unbuildable dependency chain was: [‘dey-image-minimal-lshell’, ‘lshell’]

This is all somewhat new to me, but I suspect that the steps are not as simple as outlined in the First Steps Guide, and some custom recipe or other support is required to go about this. Is it possible, and does anyone have constructive help to provide on this topic?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi, I have added "IMAGE_INSTALL = “lshell” in the local.conf. Then built the graphical image successfully with the below command.
#bitbake dey-image-graphical

But I have no idea, really does this images has the lshell package.I hope this may help you.

Thank you.
