ofono: RRECOMMENDS tun.ko & APN database
- kernel-module-tun is needed so that ofono can create the ppp network interface - mobile-broadband-provider-info is needed as an explicit dependency even though it is in DEPENDS, because it's just an xml database, and the DEPENDS simply allows ofono to figure out its location in the file system (using pkg-config during configure). But there is no shared library dependency or so for bitbake to figure out this runtime dependency. We make it a recommendation only, so that it can still be removed from filesystem images in case people build images that don't need the provider database (and e.g. hard-code APNs for specific use-cases) Signed-off-by: André Draszik <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
