Bruce Ashfield - June 15, 2012, 8:23 p.m.
From: Liang Li <liang.li@windriver.com>

perf has been coupled to the kernel packages via kernel.bbclass.
While maintaining the build of perf out of the kernel source tree
is desired the package coupling has proved to be awkward in
several situations such as:

  - when a kernel recipe doesn't want to build/provide perf
  - when licensing of dependencies would prohibit perf and hence
    the kernel from being built.

To solve some of these problems, this recipe is the extraction of
the linux-tools.inc provided perf compilation into a standalone
perf recipe that builds out of the kernel source, but is otherwise
independent.

No new functionality is provided above what the linux-tools.inc
variant provided, but the separate recipe provides baseline for
adding new functionality.

This fails to find the correct file in the poky-lsb case, not sure what 
is going on yet, but here is the error from the autobuilder.

ERROR: Function failed: perf: LIC_FILES_CHKSUM points to an invalid 
file: 
/srv/home/pokybuild/yocto-autobuilder/yocto-slave/nightly-x86/build/build/tmp/sysroots/qemux86/kernel/source/COPYING
NOTE: package perf-3.4-r0: task do_configure: Failed
ERROR: Task 3336 
(/srv/home/pokybuild/yocto-autobuilder/yocto-slave/nightly-x86/build/meta/recipes-kernel/perf/perf_3.4.bb, 
do_configure) failed with exit code '1'

This can be reproduced by setting DISTRO="poky-lsb" in your local.conf

Please investigate, thanks

	Sau!

ok. Either Liang or myself will have a go with that config. I've never
built poky-lsb
or have any typical use for it .. so I'd never reproduce this in my
own builds :)

My turn to ask a question. What are the host requirements for poky-lsb, and why
aren't they checked up front ? I can't trigger the error, since I
can't build poky-lsb
on my builder, due to gdk-pixbuf-native failing in configure:

| checking sys/sysinfo.h usability... yes
| checking sys/sysinfo.h presence... yes
| checking for sys/sysinfo.h... yes
| checking for mediaLib 2.3... checking for mlib_ImageSetStruct in -lmlib... no
| checking for x86 platform... no
| checking for GDK_PIXBUF_XLIB_DEP... no
| configure: error: Package requirements (x11 gobject-2.0) were not met:
|
| No package 'x11' found

I forced x11 off in my gdk-pixbuf (I couldn't fine the right DISTRO_FEATURE
tweak to do it .. but I digress), and I was able to build poky-lsb
just fine here.

NOTE: Running noexec task 2674 of 2674 (ID: 5, 
/home/bruce/poky/meta/recipes-core/images/core-image-minimal.bb, do_build)
NOTE: Tasks Summary: Attempted 2674 tasks of which 2595 didn't need to 
be rerun and all succeeded.

Care to elaborate on what exactly the autobuilder runs that would
trigger this .. and remember, I'm a kernel guy, so I'm not familiar
with all the ins and outs of what you may or may not being doing to
trigger this .. so the more specific you are, the easier it is for
me to help out.

(i.e. what image was I suppose to build ? Which MACHINE ?)

But as of now, I can't reproduce this, and it looks like a dependency
problem on the kernel sources that has never been triggered here, so
you are going to need to help me .. help you.

Cheers,

Bruce

Saul and I have worked out some of the details on this, I've reworked the perf
recipe to be less like the kernel.bbclass variant, and a better citizen of the
sysroot.

Once my testing completes, I'll resubmit the series.

Cheers,

Bruce
