That did the trick, thanks.

I'll attempt to solve my next problems (compiler errors) without asking for help for a while, to avoid asking another question with an obvious answer.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the detailed explanation.

I have added the md5 as Peter suggested.
I have also "activated" the package via LTIB. On exit from LTIB, I get
output from rpmbuild. During this, I get the message (which I mentioned

configure: error: termcap could not be found which is required for the
--with-readline option (which is enabled by default).  Either disable
readline support with --without-readline or download and install termcap
Note: if you are using precompiled packages you will also need the
development package as well (which may be called termcap-devel or something
Note: (n)curses also seems to work as a substitute for termcap.  This was
not found either - but you could try installing that as well.

As I indicated, I need help with this. I would prefer (I think) to build
without termcap, rather than include it on my embedded system, but I don't
know where I would specify --without-readline.  I know this would be a
command line parameter for configure, but I don't know where that command
line is generated.

Inside the .spec file, on the %Build stage.


Could someone provide guidance?

Thank you very much,

When you add a new package to the system, add a md5sum file to

$ pushd /opt/freescale/pkgs
$ md5sum parted-1.8.8.tar.bz2 > parted-1.8.8.tar.bz2.md5
The .md5sum file will be created if/when you eventually upload the content
to the GPP.  However until then this a good thing to do aswell.

LTIB looks for the .md5 to be sure that what you have is not corrupt, and
if it doesn't find the .md5 in /opt/freescale/pkgs/ it looks int the Global
Package Pool and Private Package Pool.  The global pool is in, <,> but hte provate pool
is in Freescale (your BSP came from them), which can't be seen by your
machine since you're outside Freescale's network.  It would be nice if
Freescale would disable the Provate Package Pool on .iso BSPs they release
to remove this problem.

On later BSPs the PPP references are scrubbed.  These messages can be
ignored, but if they're nuisance, edit .ltibrc and delete the entry for the
