bitbake:,,, Add support for LogExecTTY event
The LogExecTTY even is intended to provide the ability to spawn a task on a the controlling tty, if a tty is availble. When a controlling tty is not availble the previous behavior is preserved where a warning is issued about the action an end user must execute. All the available UI's were tested against the new event type. This feature is primarily intended for hooking up a screen client session automatically on the controlling tty to allow for a more streamlined end user experience when using a pure command line driven environment. The changes that send the LogExecTTY event are in the oe-core side. (Bitbake rev: cffe80d82a46aaf52ff4a7b6409435754043553f) Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
