Adding a compiled binary to rootfs in Yocto fails (QorIQ SDK 1.8)

Contributor II


i'm trying to copy a file to the /home/root/ directory to my rootfs for my target. I want to use the merge-files recipe for that:

-  I copied my helloworld.out binary to /QorIQ-SDK-V1.8-20150619-yocto/meta-fsl-arm/recipes-extended/merge-files/merge-files/merge/helloworld.out

-  I didn't touched the

-  in my target .bb - file i added   merge-files    to IMAGE_INSTALL.

But when I try to bitbake the target the following errors appear:

There are some problems with Python on Ubuntu 14.04. Check the thread at the link below, there seem to be a solution:

Why does the 1043ARDB fsl-image-full build fail?

Hi Jan, if you did not already resolve the python issues, it might be due to the version of Ubuntu 14.04 you are using.

Ubuntu 14.04.3 (32 bit or 64 bit) builds we found to build successfully, but 14.04.1 LTS (32 or 64 bit) failed. My python3 version is 3.4.0 for the 14.04.1 LTS (32-bit).  I installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 (14.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso) and this built successfully.

Although uname -a gives the following:

Linux Latitude-E7440 3.19.0-25-generic #26~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 24 21:16:20 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I installed 14.04.3 below and this worked fine. Get the ISO from the Ubuntu site.  That's Trusty Tahir - Long Term Stable. Simply follow the instructions to install.  If using Ubuntu, you can create a bootable USB stick containing the bootable .iso image: Similarly, on windows you can use the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool:
