rootfs: always update the opkg index
The previous logic assumed that if $BUILD_IMAGES_FROM_FEEDS=1 then a complete set of ipk feeds from which to build the image is already present under $IPK_FEED_URIS at do_rootfs runtime. $IPK_FEED_URIS usually contains "file://${DEPLOY_DIR_IPK}" which renders the above assumption bad because some recipes in the current build can contain code like do_install[nostamp] = "1" which will cause rebuilds bumping $PR and invalidating the index. Even when the index is manually re-created before an image build ("bitbake package-index"), the nostamp will cause failures because the dependency gets rebuilt before do_rootfs in the "bitbake <image>" call. So make the opkg rootfs index logic the same as for rpm/deb, to always update the index in $DEPLOY_DIR_IPK to fix the above nostamp failure. Feeds outside $DEPLOY_DIR_IPK added to $IPK_FEED_URIS continue to work as usual, for eg. by using a http:// URI. Signed-off-by: Ioan-Adrian Ratiu <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
