Build environment

Recommended Posts

                     Hello.

 

Now, build environment is only Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic).

But some time ago, the build environment was Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial).

 

How can I build armbian on Xenial?

 

Maybe, I have to change branch to another, or checkout to certain commit?

 

Help me please...

Thank you for answer.

 

I have additional information.

I've built the image.

 

But I can't boot.

 

There are errors during building:

              Hello friends.

 

Now I return to my task.

 

And I still can't compile on Ubuntu 16.04

I have such error:

 

[ o.k. ] Compiling u-boot [ 2018.05 ]
[ error ] ERROR in function compile_uboot [ compilation.sh:114 ]
[ error ] Could not find required toolchain [ arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc > 7.0 ]
[ o.k. ] Process terminated

 

Could you please advise me, how to compile, or checkout to old branch, when environment was Ubuntu 16.04?

 

Thank you in advance.

I've manually downloaded toolchain, and now I have such error:

  CC      kernel/bounds.s
/home/dmitriy/clock/build/cache/sources/linux-sun8i/sun8i/./Kbuild:35: recipe for target 'kernel/bounds.s' failed
Makefile:988: recipe for target 'prepare0' failed
[ error ] ERROR in function compile_kernel [ compilation.sh:360 ]
[ error ] Kernel was not built [ @host ]
[ o.k. ] Process terminated

 

Why? How to avoid it?

Start with a clean build and use recommended build options. If you go outside those areas, expect troubles and the problem ti fix things is yours.

If you don't want to use Ubuntu Bionic, use Docker which should run also on Debian host.

But where can I take old build

 

All code is here https://github.com/armbian/build but again, you will only waste your own time, not mine, for doing things that are pointless. Use recommended option. It will work. If you want the impossible, hire people.
