Full Version: Bitbake Fails With No Bb Module

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/bitbake", line 23, in ?
import bb


maybe this is really obvious, but I have no idea why I am gertting this error or how to fix it.

I'm on debian sid. the system standard python is 2.3. I changed the bitbake, bb** etc 1st lines from "python" to "python2.4" as suggested by the wiki, after I had been "getting cannot open conf/bitbake.conf errors" (I have had to rebuild my OE).

apparently the thing wants "bb" whci refers to..what? bitbake? a bbfiles dir? a module for interpreting bbfiles?

help? pointers? link to the undiscovered-by-me wikitopia from whose bourne no user returns uninformed?

THe only way I could get bb to work was to install it into /usr/bin rather then /usr/local/bin. Not sure why this was but python on my system (Gentoo) wasn't able to find the bb pyhton module if it was installed in /usr/local

Try reinstalling bitbake with /usr as a prefix instead of /usr/local

If you get an error about not being able to load the bb module you need to modify your PYTHONPATH variable.
To do this type
export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/:$PYTHONPATH
(Replace 2.3 with your version number)
