Are you building the default Edison image or are you creating a custom one? If you are having problems learning with the Yocto documentation, maybe you can go with the graphic user interface, it is easier to add and remove packages from the image and could be helpful to understand how it works. I have not tested it with the Edison image yet, but perhaps you could give it a try. In this message there is a small guide I followed for the Quark image. Also make sure you are giving the Virtual machine enough resources for the build. Regarding your error, it seems the file is corrupted or incomplete. If you build a previous image in the same build directory, I’d suggest you to start the image from scratch instead of cleaning the previous build.
I am following the BSP Users Guide, section 2, and just attempting to build the default image for now.
I also tried Hob, but even when I unselected the qemu package, it still got pulled in somehow.
It's not so much that I'm having "problems learning with the Yocto documentation," but that I'm trying to stay focused. I'm not trying to learn Yocto - I'm trying to use the Edison.
Everything in this build is from scratch, from installing the OS on a new VM to downloading and building from the newest Edison source. I gave it 40GB of space, and there's still over 20GB available. If "that file" (target-mips/translate.o) is corrupted or incomplete, can I replace it somehow without starting over from scratch?
Thanks for your response!
I did some thinking after my last post, and decided to find the offending file and just delete it, which seems to have worked.
After some more research, I believe the best way to handle this sort of issue is just clean the recipe that is having the problem. It's happened to me again with a different recipe because VirtualBox seems to have problems coming back from screen blanking (which I have now disabled...).
bitbake -c clean qemu-native
And then resume building the image:
To be specific, I deleted the following file:
