After I install PetaLinux and run petalinux-build I receive the following error:
My installation path is /proj/gsd/petalinux/2016.
Why is the build failing?
When installing PetaLinux, the user specifies a path similar to the above example. The PetaLinux installer then automatically appends a sub-directory of "petalinux-v2016.1-final" to this path.
In previous versions a simple work-around was to rename the appended subdirectory if required (For example, if the user needed to for their particular organization's installation scheme).
This work-around no longer applies starting in PetaLinux 2016.1, because the Petalinux tools now include Yocto tools that have the installation path hard coded into them.
This is planned to be fixed in a future release, but the current work-around is to not rename the directory that PetaLinux installs to.
