after a lot of frustration with only half-working Wifi/WPA stuff on my Simpad, I decided to improve instead of complaining.
So, my first task was to build the stable 2007.12-r14. I finally made it, however I took me days because I faced a lot of "dependency problems".
I would like to understand if this was a "local" problem by myself or if this is a common problem.
the "bitbake base-image" failed a lot of time with messages like
ERROR: Task 362 (/OE/org.openembedded.stable/packages/zlib/zlib-native_1.2.3.bb, do_fetch) failed
NOTE: Tasks Summary: Attempted 108 tasks of which 108 didn't need to be rerun and 1 failed.
On different packages, on different do_xxx states.
The same failed package could however be build by doing a direct bitbake -b failed_module.bb
In the end I could only build it in one run if I executed the following order:
bitbake -b /OE/org.openembedded.stable/packages/shasum/shasum-native.bb
bitbake -b /OE/org.openembedded.stable/packages/quilt/quilt-native_0.45.bb

Besides a few similar problems with shasum, I couldn't find similar reports in the web.
As said, I could finally build all images, but I want to understand if there is probably a bigger issue behind that could later cause other problems as well.
So tell me: Do you know this problem or do you have any indication what this could be?
Is this anyway the right forum to ask or should I go to Angstrom / OE mailing list? Will they stone me for such questions?
