2015.2.1 Petalinux - Selecting ncurses-tools package for rootfs causes errors during petalinux-build


Selecting the ncurses-tools package in the menuconfig for petalinux-config -c rootfs will result in output similar to the following:

[ALL ] Setting up util-linux-hwclock (2.25.2-r1) ...
[ALL ] update-alternatives: Linking /home/ra/bcapps/Projects/SDI_Platforms/zc702_osd/zc702_osd_sdi/build/linux/rootfs/stage/sbin/hwclock to /bin/busybox.nosuid

Deselecting the ncurses-tools package allows the build to complete successfully.


This issue is now resolved in Petalinux 2015.4
