This page should list common (!) mistakes when defining a recipe. a link or one sentence explaining what the problem is are a bonus. But keep it short!

(R)DEPENDS, etc.

  • do not use "libiconv" in (R)DEPEND, use "virtual/libiconv" instead. You risk a corrupted TMPDIR and need to restart from scratch.
  • never use RDEPENDS to drag kernel modules into an image, use RRECOMMENDS instead
