Hi all,
I really need some help with this. I am running Suse 10 and have successfully installed bitbake, the OE.db, compiled a gpe-image and mysql. Here is my question. I am trying to compile plutohome orbiter for the zaurus (akita). PlutoHome is a open source home automation suite. It uses an "orbiter" as a remote using either bt or wifi. I would love to get this software running on my c1000. IF I can get it to compile, I'll get another c1000 or two to use in the new home automation setup.

Here is the problem. As I mentioned above, I have the environment setup such that I can compile anything that already has a recipe/BB file. I am trying to compile PlutoOrbiter. It requires SerializeClass, PlutoUtils, DCE and a number of header files from other Pluto specific packages. I am starting with a relatively simple lib from pluto called SerializeClass. I have successfully compiled it on pocketworkstation on my z but I can't seem to figure out how to compile it using bitbake.

One question is: the source for PlutoHome is in svn. How do I write in the recipe to download it from the svn repository?

Here is my BB file:

DESCRIPTION = "PlutoHome SerializeClass for Akita"
SECTION = "base"
PRIORITY = "optional"
PR = "r1"

SRC_URI = "http://svn.plutohome.com/pluto/trunk/src/SerializeClass/"

S = "${WORKDIR}/SerializeClass-${PV}"

inherit gpe-image



FILES_${PN} = "/usr/local/bin/*"

Here is the result of "bitbake SerializeClass_SVN"
oc60174:/home/oc60174/crosscompileOE/stuff/build # bitbake SerializeClass_SVN

Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, the source directories use uppercase letters. There are a number of packages at PlutoHome that do (e.g. PlutoUtils, DCE, SerializeClass, etc.) in that case how do you handle that?
