Now I got openembedded working on Ubuntu 9.04. Magic is that disabling
locale generation.

Full log:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install ccache sed wget cvs subversion git-core \
   coreutils unzip texi2html texinfo libsdl1.2-dev docbook-utils \
   gawk python-pysqlite2 diffstat help2man make gcc build-essential \
   libxml2-utils xmlto python-psyco

sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash (answer no)

mkdir oe
cd oe/
mkdir -p build/conf

svn co svn:// bitbake
git clone git://

cp openembedded/conf/local.conf.sample build/conf/local.conf

#change path. can't use ~
nano build/conf/local.conf
  *BBFILES := "/home/rantalai/oe/openembedded/recipes/*/*.bb"
  *MACHINE = "om-gta02"
  *DISTRO = "openmoko"
  *remove last line

#use your own path
nano env
  *export BBPATH=/home/rantalai/oe/build:/home/rantalai/oe/openembedded
  *export PATH=/home/rantalai/oe/bitbake/bin:$PATH
source env

#if you do not have 0, put it
cat /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr (must be 0)
sudo su
echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr

#try with some package. E.g nano needs lots of another packages and
took over 1 hour.
bitbake nano

#if problem, first try
cd openembedded
git pull
cd ..
bitbake nano

#If you got error: No GNU_HASH in the elf binary SOME_PACKAGE
rm -rf tmp/work/armv4t-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/SOME_PACKAGE
#and try again.
