Well I will try but I have never been able to get a build to complete in the pure OE environment,
whereas Mokomakefile for some reason builds fine.
Many of the issues I run into when trying to get the pure OE environment to build have been reported
by others and never fixed. Including the one that stumped me, I have mentioned these before in
other threads with no replies.
And now the www.openembedded.org site seems to be inaccessible, so I can't read how to create my own
project and bitbake files.
So for now I'll limp along in mokomakefile and see if I can get 1.8.6 to compile, by hacking the
1.8.5 recipe in place.
When the OE website comes back up I'll try to learn how to correctly add a new version of a project,
and submit it.
As Mokomakefile is based on Bitbake and a wrapper around OE. I presume whatever I do to get it to
build in that environment will be OK to submit.
