I just wonder are the patches in the recipe
linux-handhelds-2.6_2.6.21-hh20.bb necessary or being precise
I mean these ones :
1) I get fetch errors like:
| ERROR: Function failed: Fetcher failure for URL:
Unable to fetch URL from any source.
The 'missing' file is the recipe tree - in the same dir as
2) Even when copy the patches manually I get error like mentioned in .
Could someone advise how to get over this ?
Ps. I have looked at sources/meta-handheld/conf/machine/hx4700.conf and found:
PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel = "linux"
I wonder if that wouldn't be less time consuming rather than staying
with hh.org kernel.
NOTE: package linux-handhelds-2.6-2.6.21-hh20-r26: task do_patch: Started

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
