do_distro_check: Recipe exists in other distros?
This adds a new task (distro_check) for each recipe. The task generates the source package list for Fedora OpenSuSE Ubuntu Debian & Mandriva Linux distros. As one recipe or source package can generate multiple target packages the recipe name is compared with the source package name list of LInux distributions. Thread locking is used to avoid multiple threads racing for the package list update. Then the recipe name (PN) is checked if it exists in the package list of distros. And if the DISTRO_PN_ALIAS then it is used to copmare pacakge_name instead of the PN variable. Just for example the DISTRO_PN_ALIAS can be defined in the recipe (.bb) files like this In the file DISTRO_PN_ALIAS = "Fedora=xorg-x11-server-utils;\ Ubuntu=x11-xserver-utils; Debian=x11-xserver-utils;Opensuse=xorg-x11" The final results are stored in the tmp/log/distro_check-${DATETIME}.result file. FYI this command will generate the results for all recipies: bitbake world -f -c distro_check Signed-off-by: Nitin A Kamble <>
