Problem with the QorIQ SKD 1703: When I go through the motions to customize the kernel, I get a circular symlink to the kernel sources in build_ls1012ardb/tmp/work/ls1012ardb-fsl-linux/linux-qoriq/4.1-r0/git for the RDB and I think for the FRDM as well.

Following the steps in the SDK Manual "3.3.2 Customize Linux Kernels" I reproducably get a circular symlink to the kernel sources. In fact, before I do these commands, the kernel source exists in that spot. Afterwards it is replaced by a symlink to a symlink to itself.


kernel-source -> $HOME/yocto-qoriq-sdk/QorIQ-SDK-V2.0-20160527-yocto/build_ls1012ardb/tmp/work/ls1012ardb-fsl-linux/linux-qoriq/4.1-r0/git


git -> $HOME/yocto-qoriq-sdk/QorIQ-SDK-V2.0-20160527-yocto/build_ls1012ardb/tmp/work-shared/ls1012ardb/kernel-source


What I do is follow this to the letter:
