Thanks Eric,

That allows things to work, so it seems we have a missing dependency.

We still have an issue though. The generic boot script in our git
repository has a couple of references that presume a single


In particular, the 'root=/dev/mmcblk0p1' clause and the 1 in the
	${fs}load mmc ${disk}:1

The SD card created by bitbake is configured for two:

	~/yocto/build$ fdisk -l 
	Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
      ...sdcard1            8192       24575        8192   83  Linux
      ...sdcard2           24576      753663      364544   83  Linux

It trivially easy to create a boot script specifically for Yocto
images, but this should probably be discussed.

Why should we use two partitions? It seems that unless we're loading
a RAM disk, there's no benefit in having multiple partitions.

I suspect that there's a way to create a RAM disk in Yocto, but
I'm not sure where to start besides Googling the MLs and grepping
the sources.

If we decide to use a single partition, it also seems that the
.sdcard target is a bit of overkill, and a tar-ball of the RFS
is sufficient.
