LTIB build problems on UBUNTU

I'm just getting started with i.MX53 QSB.  I have a machine dedicated for the iMX53 builds that I installed UBUNTU DESKTOP 12.04 LTS.  I then pulled down

L2.6.35_11.09.01_ER_source_bundle.tar.gz from the

i.MX53 Software and Development Tool Resources page and I *believe* I followed the instructions as outlined on http://www.imxdev.org/wiki/index.php?title=All_Boards_LTIB and http://www.imxdev.org/wiki/index.php?title=ALL_Boards_ltib_config_u... .  

Attempting to run ltib -c at that point caused an error that indicated that zlib was not available even though it was installed.  I found information at this site:


That got me over that hump, and tried ltib -c again.

I get the following error:

Installing host support packages.

This only needs to be done once per host, but may take up to
an hour to complete ...

If an error occurs, a log file with the full output may be found in:

Exiting on error or interrupt
Please see >> /home/els/imx53/ltib/host_config.log for details

and the host_config.log file says:

rpmdb: --force-debian: unknown option
Died at ./ltib line 2341.

Build Failed

Seems like this is more trouble than it should be.  Has anyone built LTIB on the latest UBUNTU or am I just doing something wrong?
