The purpose of this release is to provide support for building Bernard on newer distributions such as Fedora 16 and Ubuntu 11.10.
This support consists of several patches related to:
* cross compilation on hosts with a Linux 3.x kernel
* host libraries changing location (i.e. Debian based systems have moved libgl to a new location which affects the build of qemu-native)
* Fixing Makefiles to work with the stricter parser shipped with newer versions of GNU Make
Further we have included security patches from various upstreams including:
* the Linux kernel
We are unable to fully support openSUSE 11.4 with this release of Poky. We've discovered an issue where building binutils for a target machine of the same architecture as the build host can result in nasty host infection issues which cause the build to fail.
