Hello All,


I want to create a recipe to compile cifs-utils and bitbake with image.


I tried following YOCTO user manual and at first it was troublesome. But now, i am able to bitbake but "cifs-utils not found in the base feeds" is the error. So the last do_install is getting failed.


My recipe looks like this,


# This file is a modified example recipe to help mount cifs on linux.



DESCRIPTION = "Simple compile application"

SECTION = "examples"


LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://${COMMON_LICENSE_DIR}/MIT;md5=0835ade698e0bcf8506ecda2f7b4f302"

PR = "r0"


SRC_URI = ""


SRC_URI[tarball.md5sum] = "b1e6309e8331e0f4e6efd311c2d97fa8"

SRC_URI[tarball.sha256sum] = "7f7d9f60b7766b852881d40b8ff91d8e39fccb0d1d913102a5c75a2dbb52332d"


S = "${WORKDIR}"

DEPENDS +="glibc"

ALLOW_EMPTY_${PN}-dev = "1"




do_install () {

         oe_runmake install DESTDIR=${D} SBINDIR=${sbindir} MANDIR=${mandir} INCLUDEDIR=${includedir}








Now my question is cifs-utils gets compiled by AUTOTOOLS so at first i used inherit autotools but did not work.


oe-runmake error persisted.


But now there is no error but do_install fails right at the end. can anyone help ??
