Yocto project - bitbake fails when using stm32mp13-disco machine


Hi there,

I'm new to the Yocto project and have been following this tutorial series in order to familiarise myself with the process. In the series, the presenter is using an STM32MP157 Discovery Kit to walk through the process. I initially followed the tutorial to the letter, and managed to build an image using the Poky reference distro, along with the ST BSP. I noticed that no image was made for the board I am using (STM32MP135-DK), so I decided to rebuild my image using the "stm32mp13-disco" machine present under "/meta-st-stm32mp/conf/machine". After rerunning "bitbake core-image-minimal" I was met with the following error:


ERROR: Could not invoke dnf. Command '/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/recipe-sysroot-native/usr/bin/dnf -v --rpmverbosity=info -y -c /home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/rootfs/etc/dnf/dnf.conf --setopt=reposdir=/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/rootfs/etc/yum.repos.d --installroot=/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/rootfs --setopt=logdir=/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/temp --repofrompath=oe-repo,/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/build-mp1/tmp/work/stm32mp13_disco-poky-linux-gnueabi/st-image-userfs/1.0-r0/oe-rootfs-repo --nogpgcheck install linux-examples-stm32mp1-userfs packagegroup-st-demo' returned 1:

ERROR: Task (/home/<my username>/Projects/yocto/meta-st-stm32mp/recipes-st/images/ failed with exit code '1'


 This appeared to point at the recipe file "":


SUMMARY = "STM32MP userfs Image"

include recipes-st/images/

# Define to null ROOTFS_MAXSIZE

# Add specific package for our image:
    ${@bb.utils.contains('MACHINE_FEATURES', 'm4copro', 'm4projects-stm32mp1-userfs', '', d)} \
    linux-examples-stm32mp1-userfs \

# Add demo application described on specific packagegroup
    packagegroup-st-demo \


Before I rebuilt the image, I ran bitbake -c cleanall.

If you need to see any other files in order to help please let me know and I will oblige.

As I stated, I am very new to Yocto project and have not yet had the chance to tinker with things such as modifying recipe files or adding my own packages to the distribution.

I've unfortunately hit a bit of a dead end with this, and any help/pointers in the right direction would be very helpful.

EDIT: Just to add, I'm using a system running Debian 12 (Bookworm) with 8GB RAM, lots of disk space.

Today I tried the same with mickledore distribution. I've got exactly the same error as mentioned above.

Same problem for me.

Tried also to add "IMAGE_INSTALL:append = " bash"" to local.conf file, but didn't work. Can someone help us on that ?
