classes/archive: do_configure should not depend on do_ar_patched
The commit d4be264061 ("classes/archiver: run do_unpack_and_patch after do_preconfigure") correctly moved do_unpack_and_patch to depend on do_preconfigure, but left do_ar_patched as a dependency of do_configure introduced from 8a7c779487 ("classes/archiver: Create patched archive before configuring"). Having do_configure depend on do_ar_patched is blatantly wrong. Firstly, doing so causes the taskhash of do_configure to change which is undesirable. Secondly, the anon python that sets up the tasks carefully skips GCC recipes that depend on gcc-source to provide their source code since running do_unpack_and_patch in them would delete the source code. Adding in the dependency effectively bypasses this and makes these recipes delete the shared gcc-source This fixes errors (for real this time) like: cat: .../gcc/defaults.h: No such file or directory when making certain configuration changes. For posterity, you could easily reproduce gcc-source being erased by running the commands (replacing aarch64 with your correct target arch): bitbake -c cleanall gcc-source gcc-cross-aarch64 bitbake -c do_deploy_archives gcc-source # The following would fail because # gcc-cross-aarch64:do_unpack_and_patch erases shared source, so # do_configure after that fails. bitbake gcc-cross-aarch64 (From OE-Core rev: 2399fdf98a6e6e4245c2e7ed1f72404ebece3eca) Signed-off-by: Joshua Watt <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <> (cherry picked from commit f02c1904330da47a25cf85f0077712f584f4ee5b) Signed-off-by: Steve Sakoman <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
