[meta-qt5] populate_sdk_ext fails

Mike Nicholson


I’m attempting to generate an extensible SDK that includes the meta-qt5 layer.  Generating a standard sdk via Yocto works just fine but generating the extensible sdk fails with the following error:


| NOTE: Executing create_sdk_files ...

| DEBUG: Executing shell function create_sdk_files

| touch: cannot touch '/home/nic47222/Projects/viavi-platform/viavi-bsp/build/tmp/work/mts-poky-linux-gnueabi/viavi-image-qt5/1.0-r0/sdk-ext/image//opt/poky/2.1.1/sysroots/x86_64-pokysdk-linux/usr/bin/qt5/qt.conf': No such file or directory


It appears that here https://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5/blob/9aa870eecf6dc7a87678393bd55b97e21033ab48/classes/populate_sdk_qt5_base.bbclass#L7 the directory that should contain the qt.conf file does not exist.


Are there known issues with the populate_sdk_ext command and the meta-qt5 layer?


I can get generate the extensible SDK just fine if I make the following changes:


diff --git a/classes/populate_sdk_qt5_base.bbclass b/classes/populate_sdk_qt5_base.bbclass

index b6ce596..b66fe25 100644

     touch $qtconf

     echo '[Paths]' >> $qtconf

Thank you in advance for any help.
