Hi Zhaoping,

Exception: bb.process.ExecutionError: Execution of '/home/imx8/imx-yocto-bsp/voip/tmp/work/imx8mmevk-poky-linux/core-image-minimal/1.0-r0/temp/run.archive_sdk.34326' failed with exit code 137:
WARNING: exit code 137 from a shell command.

This exit code 137 means the archive_sdk shell command received a SIGKILL.  The most likely reason is that the system ran out of memory.  You might be able to confirm this by checking dmesg output and looking for a reference to the kernel out of memory oom-killer.  I have seen this on Ubuntu 18.04 using 4GB of RAM.

I would suggest using a machine with more RAM, or run the current system with as few processes running in the background as possible (no GUI, etc).

Hi Zhaoping,

I tested it on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS platform. It seems that some neccessary software packages should be installed. Try packages below, please!


# sudo apt-get update

# sudo apt-get upgrade

# sudo apt-get install flex bison gperf build-essential zlib1g-dev

# sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses5-dev x11proto-core-dev

# sudo apt-get install libx11-dev lib32z1-dev libgl1-mesa-dev

# sudo apt-get install tofrodos python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc

# sudo apt-get install uuid-dev:i386 liblzo2-dev:i386 gcc-multilib g++-multilib

# sudo apt-get install subversion openssh-server openssh-client uuid uuid-dev zlib1g-dev

# sudo apt-get install liblz-dev lzop liblzo2-2 liblzo2-dev git-core curl

# sudo apt-get install python3 python3-pip python3-pexpect python3-git python3-jinja2 pylint3

# sudo apt-get install u-boot-tools mtd-utils android-tools-fsutils


         For ubuntu 20.04 LTS, don’t need android-tools-fsutils. So remove it, please!

# sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk device-tree-compiler aptitude

# sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev nss-updatedb

# sudo apt-get install chrpath texinfo gawk cpio diffstat

# sudo apt-get install libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev libegl1-mesa

# sudo apt-get install net-tools python libsdl1.2-dev xterm socat

# sudo apt-get install icedtea-netx-common icedtea-netx


Then try to compile it following steps in i.MX_Yocto_User's_Guide.pdf.

Have  a nice day!
