Bitbake not installing files from recipe to rootfs

Hello!

I'm currently using yocto to build the system imx6sxsabresd (IMX6 Solo X). I have successfully built the image however I want to add some a script to init.d to turn on a led. I'm appending to the linux-imx recipes.

This is my linux-imx.bbappend file:

FILESEXTRAPATHS_prepend := "${THISDIR}/linux-imx:"

SRC_URI += "file://0001-added-pad-for-heartbeat-led.patch \
        file://heartbeat.sh \
        file://heartbeat "

PACKAGECONFIG_append = " heartbeat"

inherit update-rc.d
INITSCRIPT_PACKAGES = "${PN}"
INITSCRIPT_PARAMS = "start"
INITSCRIPT_NAME = "heartbeat.sh"

do_install_append() {
  install -d ${D}${sysconfdir}/init.d
  install -m 0755 ${WORKDIR}/heartbeat.sh ${D}${sysconfdir}/init.d/heartbeat.sh

  install -d ${D}/home/root
  install -m 0755 ${WORKDIR}/heartbeat ${D}/home/root/heartbeat
}

FILES_${PN} += "${sysconfdir}/init.d/heartbeat.sh /home/root/heartbeat"
PACKAGES = "${PN}"

I'm able to create the sdcard image succesfully with the patch I've included in this bbappend file, however, the files heartbeat.sh and heartbeat are not copying to the final rootfs added to the output sdcard file. This is very odd because I'm able to see these files in their paths copied to ../tmp/work/imx6sxsabresd-poky-linux-gnueabi/linux-imx/4.14.98-r0/image/

Hi Jon Clay,

Please add following line to your <build_dir>conf/local.conf file:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " <recipe_name>"   

Let us know in case of any concern.

Hello Jon Clay,


Is the problem still present? The procedure you followed looks correct. However, have you checked the priority of the layer in which your append is located? It could be that it's been overwritten by some other instruction or append if the priority is not high enough.
