I am going through the document called Freescale Yocto Project User's Guide (IMXLXYOCTOUG, Rev. L3.14.38_6ul-ga, 09/2015)


I followed all the steps to setup the iMX/Yocto environment on Linux. I am running into an issue when I run the bitake command described in "5.3 Building an image".


The following error below is displayed in my console, what is missing?


xxxx@xxxx-VirtualBox:~/build_dir_imx6ulevk$ bitbake fsl-image-machine-test
