Errors while Compiling busy box for android on i.mx53 QSB board

Discussion created by Srinivasan on Feb 21, 2012

Dear All,

I started compiling busy box by downloading the source from the below link by executing the following commands

http://omapedia.org/wiki/Android_Installing_Busybox_Command_Line_Tools

ubuntu@ubuntu-laptop:~$ git clone git://busybox.net/busybox.git
ubuntu@ubuntu-laptop:~$ cd busybox/
ubuntu@ubuntu-laptop:~$ git checkout -b my_working_branch 1_19_3

configured the busybox using the following command

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi- menuconfig

In menuconfig set the following options

Busybox Settings --> Build Options --> Build Busybox as a static binary (no shared libs)  -  Enable this option by pressing "Y"
Busybox Settings --> Build Options --> Cross compiler prefix  -  Set this option equal to "arm-none-linux-gnueabi-"
Busybox Settings --> General Configuration --> Don't use /usr  -  Enable this option by pressing "Y"
Linux Module Utilities --> [ ] Simplified modutils
                           [*]   insmod
                           [*]   rmmod 
                           [*]   lsmod
                           [*]     Pretty output
                           [ ]   modprobe
                           [ ]   depmod
Linux Module Utilities --> [ ] Support version 2.2/2.4 Linux kernels
Linux Module Utilities --> [ ] Try to load module from a mmap'ed area
Linux Module Utilities --> [*] Support tainted module checking with new kernels
Linux Module Utilities --> () Default directory containing modules - Set this option to nothing
Linux Module Utilities --> () Default name of modules.dep - Set this option to nothing

And builded using the below command

ubuntu@ubuntu-laptop:~/busybox$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi-
