Hi Andy,

Again, could you PLEASE tell me what you're trying to do here?  You
just want to compile dm2, or you want to modify the code?

Everyone here has simliar setup and they actually use it everyday.  I
will just write what works for us right now.  Remove the fedora
bitbake.  Ignore the libts-dev (It's on buildhost, what do you mean by
"I don't know which one"?) at least for now.

You can find everything I wrote here on

First of all the easiest way to setup the environment is MokoMakefile.

For the impatient:

basically you just need to

mkdir ~/moko
cd ~/moko
make setup
make update

If any necessary tool missing, install it.  I'd say monotone.  Now you
wait.  We aren't compile anything yet.  Just setting the env.

After that you should have ~/moko/build .

cd ~/moko/build
svn co
vim conf/local.conf, add

BBFILES := "${OEDIR}/build/packages/*/*.bb ${OEDIR}/openembedded/packages/*/*.bb"

Now you're all set.

cd ~/moko
source setup-env
bitbake openmoko-dm2

Wait some more.

More stuffs in my previous mail:

If you encounter any problem, grab me on IRC/mail/whatever.

Since it's a public list here I would like to add:

The internal OE overlay is for NDA stuff such as production testing
software.  Now we decided to open that up as well.  This dm2 and tslib
fuss is part of it.
