poky-639cadd6f9a1ec795443081d7f1ca1ab530d385a.tar.bz2 / OpkgSdk: remove_packaging_data() after install
Run remove_packaging_data() on both host and target sysroots to wipe opkg state after install, similar to what RpmSdk does. Use case: Opkg may download local package indexes (I.e. file:// URLs) by sym-linking them into /var/lib/opkg/lists/ instead of copying [1]. This leaves behind broken symlinks under the lists directory when using opkg to build SDK sysroots. The -h option may be set via SDKTAROPTS in some configurations to create symlink-less SDK archives for Windows file systems. Sysroots containing broken symlinks will fail to archive under this configuration. Testing: Verified /var/lib/opkg/ is empty after running populate_sdk() in a Fido based distribution.
