Can't get started with yocto...

I've been working with custom iMX6 hardware that is similar to the SabreSDB eval board.

My host development machine started off as UBUNTU 12.04 LTS Desktop.

Up to this point I've been working with u-boot-2013.10 and linux-3.12 with buildroot to create rootfs.

Referring to a few other threads:

command line doesn't process wildcards, why?

Any examples on how to modify the .dts (device tree) source for custom hardware?

I've hit some snags that tell me I should back off on my kernel. 

So I decided to check out the yocto stuff.

I started with...

Freescale Yocto Project main page

and installed the needed packages.  Then referred to the instructions..

to get started.  I didn't get far :-(


Initially the line

repo init -u -b dylan

returned the error: fatal: git 1.7.2 or later required.  Running 'git --version' returned 1.6.3,

and 'sudo apt-get install git-core' said I had the latest.  So I pulled down git 1.8.3 tarball from and installed that.

Now the line

repo init -u -b dylan

returns with the error message:  

fatal: Cannot get

fatal: HTTP error 400


and sure enough if I use my browser to go to that site, it returns "Not found".

Any clue what I'm doing wrong?
