Description Michael Kers 2005-08-22 20:41:14 UTC
I needed it for OE building (OpenEmbedded), so I made one. Not sure how to go 
about submitting this, but I read somewhere this was how. 

Reproducible: Always

untar to /usr/local/portage/dev-embedded, (dev-embedded/bitbake)
Comment 3 Michael Kers 2005-08-22 20:52:23 UTC
This is my first ebuild, so there are probably problems/mistakes.  I will fix 
as needed. 
Only gotcha on this ebuild is that user must set env variable BBPATH to point 
to system bitbake configuration file (installs 
to /usr/share/bitbake/conf/bitbake.conf) so BBPATH=/usr/share/bitbake 
User must also add their custom configured "local" configuration file path, 
which is wildly dependent where they put their configuration info for say 
Comment 4 Michael Kers 2005-08-22 20:55:11 UTC
This is my first ebuild, so please have patience... There may be problems. 
I know for sure that one thing missing is that ENV variable BBPATH must be set 
to location of several things, some of which do not get installed with 
bitbake, but must be added by user manually. 
I'm thinking to add BBPATH to /etc/profile, but since it needs to be appended 
to by user maybe this isn't the right place.

Heh, the ebuild in portage fetches the files from SVN, so it's hardly old. :-)
Do you still want this in portage?
Comment 6 Michael Kers 2005-08-23 19:58:17 UTC
Um.. yeah it kindof does I guess.  You just have to re-emerge to get the new 
version (since portage doesn't consider the -0 to be an new version even if 
the svn version has changed). 
Thats why I bothered with this in the first place, I was stuck at version 0.X 
and didn't see an ebuild for anything newer, and portage wouldn't tell me I 
could upgrade to a newer version. 
Kindof a gotcha... 
Comment 7 Michael Kers 2005-08-27 20:52:50 UTC
I'm gonna close this because my solution is silly.  Never mind.
