Hello everyone. I have an issue when I try to build image via bitbake command of Yocto Project. 

I did follow this guide of Altera http://download.altera.com/akdlm/software/soceds/cb/embedded_linux_getting_started_guide.pdf 

The error come when I use this command to build image bitbake virtual/kernel virtual/bootloader altera-image 

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I searched in the Internet and some people say that error because the version of my Ubuntu distribution I'm using. I'm so confuse now. Please help me. Thanks

You can now run 'bitbake <target>' 

 

 

Common targets are: 

bitbake virtual/kernel 

bitbake virtual/bootloader 

bitbake altera-gsrd-image 

bitbake altera-image 

hohaidang@hohaidang-PC:~/yocto/build$ bitbake virtual/kernel virtual/bootloader altera-imagePseudo is not present but is required, building this first before the main build 

WARNING: Host distribution "Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution.

I found out by finding a post that Ubuntu 14.04 and above are only supported by Yocto 1.6 and above:

Here you can get a newer version and be successful https://www.yoctoproject.org/downloads
