LTIB build errors i.MX6Q

Hi,

I've installed installed LTIB on a Ubuntu 9.04 host following the host setup instructions to the letter.  I've run ./ltib -m config and picked the Platform "Freescale iMX reference boards".    Selected iMX6 for the platform and mx6q_sabreauto for the uboot.  Pretty much exactly like the instruction indicate.  When I run ./ltib I get a build error failed to build u-boot as follows:

Jeffrey,

those steps you made are the correct ones. LTIB uses /opt/freescale folder by default (you can change this, check the ltib script) to store all downloaded packages, patches, checksums, toolchain, etc, in order words, is the workplace for LTIB, so do not chose to install ltib there. It is safer to install it somewhere in your home directory.

Also, as a step 5, I would add

5. select the u-boot board on the ltib menuconfig screen.

Hi Jeffrey,

seems that the U-boot configuration file is not found, so the make command fails building it. It the past, I had some similar problem and what I did is to reinstall ltib. So please reinstall it. Before doing this:

1. have you done any modifications to U-boot code?

2. can you try building the pks individually $./ltib -m scbuild -p u-boot

3. can you check that the config file is indeed present $ find ltib/rpm/BUILD/u-boot-2009.08 -name *_config

Also, that host OS is pretty old :smileyhappy: . is there a reason you are using that particular version?

9.04 is what Freescale recommends in their documentation, they state very clearly to use 9.04.  Otherwise I would not have used it.  I have not modified anything this is just a vanilla build straight from their source package. I haven't tried building just the pkg individually, but i will.  Also the configs don't seem to be there, like the patching process for the platform did not work correctly, although I got no errors during the installation of LTIB.

I'm not sure I trust the instructions in Freescale's docs package. 

Thanks

FSL recommends a set of OS, specially Ubuntu 9 and 10. Documents are correct; all embedded instructions into the documents have been tested exhaustively.

Can you please try to reinstall LTIB again? of course, use another destination folder. Let me know the result.

I tried a reinstall in a different destination, /opt/freescale.  I chown'd /opt/freescale to be my default user and the first thing I noticed is after running install and then ./ltib it seems that ltib installs everything under /opt/freescale as root.  It then cannot save the platform config file because of permission issues.  I have to ctrl-c and chown it back again and then run ltib again.  Note I have added the line to the sudoer file as specified in the documentation so not sure why this happens.  Anyhow once I do this it appears to work, ltib then lets me save the imx6 platform config and goes on applying zillions of patches which i would expect and the kernel seems to build fine.

I guess I'm concerned somewhere my install got messed up and I'd like to figure out why.  I followed the host setup to the letter.

Basically I followed the following steps.

1.  install all the host setup stuff as specified in the document (didn't have any issues here everything seemed to work)

2.  install tlib from source package

3.  run./ltib

4.  select imx6 platform and min profile
