Go to your output/debug/ folder and check the log files for more detailed information.

The only useful stuff I can find is in "compilation.log"

Error: arch/arm/dts/.sun7i-a20-bananapi.dtb.pre.tmp:378.3-11 syntax error
FATAL ERROR: Unable to parse input tree
make[2]: *** [arch/arm/dts/sun7i-a20-bananapi.dtb] Error 1
make[1]: *** [arch-dtbs] Error 2
make: *** [dts/dt.dtb] Error 2

I'm using this for my private stuff. I can't afford to hire a person for this. But I will donate some money to the project as I already did in the past. If it's impossible to build something with the new kernel it's Ok.

The majority of users that are interested in building their own kernel are doing so because they have installed Ubuntu on their system and they wish to make a small change to the kernel for that system. In many cases the user just wants to make a kernel configuration change.

The purpose of this page is to give that user a minimum amount of information for them to meet the goal of making a simple change to the kernel, building it and installing their kernel. It is not intended to be the definitive guide to doing Ubuntu kernel development.
