LinuxImageV2.7 kernel build failure


I’m building a V2.7Beta1 image for a T30 board on an Ubuntu / Debian host and I get stuck on building the kernel.

The problem is, that the configuration fails, because of the command “pushd / popd” in the kernel receipe (do_configure_prepend). This commands are builtins of the bash shell, but Ubuntu / Debian uses the dash shell as the default for /bin/sh.

Perhaps you should replace this commands or point out in the wiki that for Ubuntu / Debian the default shell has to be changed to bash (dpkg-reconfigure dash).

Yes, only sane shells should ever be used as e.g. mentioned here.

Sorry haven’t seen that page, just looked on the “OpenEmbedded” one.
