Here's a cut-and-paste shell session showing one way to do a start-from-scratch git checkout and build, the end result being a sato desktop in a qemu session (commands also shown for that).

One thing to not with this example, is that I'm checking out from poky/bernard, only because when I create this session, poky/master wasn't building for me. Normally, you'd want to use poky/master i.e. in the step below where it says 'git checkout -b bernard-cur poky/bernard' you'd want to do 'git checkout -b master-cur poky/master'. Sometimes it's easier to just use the last known stable version in cases where master is broken and you don't necessarily need master to get your work done.

Branch bernard-cur set up to track remote branch bernard from poky.
Switched to a new branch 'bernard-cur'

You had no conf/local.conf file. Poky has created this configuration file for
you with some default values. You may wish to edit it to use a different MACHINE
(target hardware) or enable parallel build options to take advantage of multiple
cores for example. See the file for more information as common configuration
options are commented.

Also, for more information see the Poky Reference Manual:
    http://yoctoproject.org/community/documentation

You had no conf/bblayers.conf file. Poky has created this configuration file for
you with some default values. To add additional metadata layers into your
configuration please add entries to this file.

### Shell environment set up for Poky builds. ###

You can now run 'bitbake <target>'

Common targets are:
    poky-image-minimal
    poky-image-sato
    meta-toolchain
    meta-toolchain-sdk

You can also run generated qemu images with a command like 'poky-qemu qemux86'

trz@elmorro:/usr/local/src/Yocto/build$ cd conf
trz@elmorro:/usr/local/src/Yocto/build/conf$ ls
bblayers.conf  local.conf

Rahul: For this build, just change only the following variables in local.conf, it make the build go faster depending on how many CPUs you have. I have 4, with HT, so I'm changing my values to 8:

trz@elmorro:/usr/local/src/Yocto/build/conf$ emacs -nw local.conf
BB_NUMBER_THREADS = "8"
PARALLEL_MAKE = "-j 8"

Since this is your first build, the following doesn't matter, it will take awhile regardless, but for later builds, to avoid re-downloading all the packages again, you can point the DL_DIR variable in local conf to the downloads dir of a previous build.

trz@elmorro:/usr/local/src/Yocto/build/conf$ cd /usr/local/src/Yocto
trz@elmorro:/usr/local/src/Yocto$ source poky-init-build-env
