Follow this link , but Yocto Fail in GIT

Hi All ,

I follow this link on Freescale Yocto Training but fail on : bitbake fsl-image-gui.

The error message is :

WARNING: Failed to fetch URL git://, attempting MIRRORS if available

ERROR: Fetcher failure: Fetch command failed with exit code 128, output:

Cloning into bare repository '/home/rick/2fsl-community-bsp/downloads//git2/'...

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I try this manually :

git clone git://

and I got : fatal . remote host close unexpectedly

I think Yocto is trying to clone qt-in-industrial-embedded.git but unable to complete.

Anyone know how to fix it ?

Hi Yuri ,

Thanks for your quick response.

Last week I follow the same YOCTO instructions and I did not get this error message. I went to that directory and found this :


rick@kingstonV120:~/fsl-community-bsp/downloads/git2$ ls -alrt gitorious*

drwxrwxr-x 52 rick rick 12288 Mar  6 09:23 ..


In the directory downloads , there is a git2 directory which store the "DONE" file and the clone of "".

I copy the DONE file and the whole clone directory to my new run directory and run "bitbake fsl-image-gui " again and the Yocto takes it and continue to run.

I think sometime this week QT must done something to prevent user to clone ????

As I mentioned before , this command return ERROR : git clone git://

Do you know anyone in QT to confirm this ?

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Rick,

I'm facing the same issue but I'm behind a proxy that don't like git.

Using HTTPS it seems better

git clone

Cloning into 'qt-in-industrial-embedded'...

remote: Counting objects: 211, done.


Checking connectivity... done.

I change it in the recipe meta-fsl-demos/recipes-qt/qt-in-use/ :

SRC_URI = "git://;protocol=https \

Best Regards,
