* Reverse the order of OVERRIDESChris Larson2010-10-151-7/+24
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Given the current implementation of OVERRIDES in bitbake, the variable is expected to contain elements in the order least specific to most specific, however, our current usage of it does not match that. As one example, "local" is supposed to always be the most specific override, yet currently it's the least specific. As another example, currently the target architecture is seen as more specific than the machine, which is also clearly wrong. Big thanks to Chase Maupin for investigating and identifying this long standing issue. It becomes clear that a reversal of the current value will bring us to a more sane behavior, and avoids the need for the dual overrides hack mentioned in the comments, so this implements this reversal, and drops the unnecessary and confusing comments. This also introduces a MACHINE_OVERRIDES variable as a generic mechanism to inject overrides elements which are more specific than the distro but less specific than the machine, which is where things like MACHINE_CLASS or SOC_FAMILY or the like would go. This variable is *space* separated, to make it easier and more convenient to assemble the variable incrementally.

* usermanual: Remove the prebuilt toolchain documentation.Holger Hans Peter Freyther2010-09-171-238/+3
| | | | | | The documentation is outdated and one should use external-toolchain but no one has written documentation for that... at least do not ask people to head to a wrong documentation.

* Siteinfo cleanup v2Chris Larson2010-07-262-10/+10
| | | | | | | | | | - Don't supply site files for native. - Split up the site information, so we don't need to add every single combination of os and architecture to the siteinfo.bbclass. - Drop the ${FILE_DIRNAME}/site-<bits> stuff, there are other ways to do it. - SITEINFO_ENDIANESS -> SITEINFO_ENDIANNESS.

* Siteinfo cleanupChris Larson2010-07-262-10/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | - Don't supply site files for native - Split up the site information, so we don't need to add every single combination of os and architecture to the siteinfo.bbclass - Instead of specifically looking for '${FILE_DIRNAME}/site-${PV}/<sitefile>', leverage FILESPATH. Now it searches the paths in both BBPATH and FILESPATH for "site/<sitefile>". - SITEINFO_ENDIANESS -> SITEINFO_ENDIANNESS Signed-off-by: Chris Larson <clarson@kergoth.com>

| | | | | | Just a few things in the documentation I noticed while reading up on OE. I don't understand why 'git diff' included "\ No newline at end of file" for some of these, or how I could instruct it not to, but I also didn't want to pick apart my patch outside of git.
