Stop oe-core complaining about development distros
by Ross Burton
As anyone who runs
oe-corePoky on a development distribution, you’ll get a warning when you start
bitbake because the distribution is unsupported:
WARNING: Host distribution "Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution.
Fair enough, but I’m tough enough to deal with that. Luckily you can silence this warning. Take the distribution identifier out of the warning and then append it to
SANITY_TESTED_DISTROS in your
local.conf, for example:
SANITY_TESTED_DISTROS += "Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)"
Voilà, no more spurious warnings.
