PetaLinux 2013.10 - When enabling busybox - Syslog, petalinux-build command fails.


When I enable busybox-syslog in the root filesystem, petalinux-build fails with the following message:

[ERROR] Errors were encountered while processing:
[ALL  ]  busybox-syslog
[ERROR] E: Sub-process /proj/gsd/petalinux/2013.10.patch/tools/packagemanager/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This is fixed in PetaLinux version 2014.2. 

For earlier versions, this can be worked around by following the steps below.

You can create a user app and install the syslog startup scripts with the user app.

Here are the steps:
  1. Disable busybox-syslog from petalinux-config -c rootfs
  2. Run the following command:
    petalinux-create -t apps -n setup-syslog --template --install --enable
  3. Manually edit <proj>/components/apps/setup-syslog/ to install syslog startup scripts.
The attached file (setup-syslog.zip) is an example of the startup scripts. 

It can be modified to suit the demands of a specific system.
