Thank you very much for the response Khem.
I used the sample and set both the DISTRO and MACHINE variables
appropriately. Since this was a fresh host install, I also cloned the
OE repo just like the getting started wiki page said.
I solved my issues however and feel fairly embarrassed about it. I
missed the big clue when the host detect returned i686-INVALID. I also
remember someone once writing that using OE from within a virtual
machine (vmware player in this case) was sometimes bad. That was the
case here. The host type ends up being an empty field which propagates
downstream to result in all the errors I encountered. Performing the
Getting Started instructions on an actual install of Ubuntu has worked
great for me so far and I am attempting to put in my own Machine conf
for the gateworks Laguna platform.
Thank you again for the response,
