The Yocto project uses the bugzilla at http://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/ to handle bug tracking. You should always consult that source first when experiencing any issue with a Yocto Project release.
- Bug 797/925 - rpm locking issues/races. The workaround is simply to restartthe build. Proper fixes have been merged into master and will be available in the next point release.
- Bug 414/780 - qemuppc emulation issues. These issues don't appear on real hardware and appear related to deficiencies in the emulation (such as the use of the ISA bus). The issues are intermittent and do not show up for many people.
- Bug 827 - zypper installation issues on qemuarm. If you have zypper issues consult bugzilla and reference 827.
- Freescale MPC8315-RDB - The instructions in README.hardware for the Freescale MPC8315-RDB that indicate u-boot should be upgraded should be ignored. The u-boot on recent board revisions should be current enough. Reflashing the bootloader is a potentially risky operation.
- Distros - Known issues exist on some recent distribution releases (e.g. Ubuntu Natty and Fedora 15). Fixes for these issues are being applied to the bernard branch as they are found and they are being documented in bugzilla.
- Drivers - qemu GL passthrough can have issues if a closed source nvidia driver is used on the host system. Some S3 suspend state issues exist with Intel BSPs, which are documented in bugzilla.
- Docs - The Release 1.0 documents included in the Yocto Project 1.0 tarball might differ from the same documents accessed from the Yocto Project website. Differences exist due to freeze dates prior to the release date. For the most up-to-date Yocto Project documentation, always refer to the Yocto Project website at http://www.yoctoproject.org.
