./tlib fails to build kernel-3.0.35

Question asked by djbuijs on Jan 24, 2013
Latest reply on Feb 1, 2013 by Daiane Angolini

I am trying to build a kernel for the SABRE iMX6 Quad board and am running into some issues. This is the first time I build a kernel and I am following the provided guide "SABRE_SD_User_Guide_L3.0.35_1.1.0.pdf". The selected kernel version is the default "kernel-3.0.35".

My host is Ubuntu 9.04 (on VirtualBox on Win 7 Pro). I managed to build LTIB without issues.

 

However, when I start building the kernel (./ltib) I get several errors:

 

1) ############

     net/core/pktgen.c: In function 'pktgen_if_show':

     net/core/pktgen.c:682:2775: error: can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'

     net/core/pktgen.c:682:3153: error: can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'

     net/core/pktgen.c:682:2775: error: 'asm' operand has impossible constraints

     net/core/pktgen.c:682:3153: error: 'asm' operand has impossible constraints

     make[2]: *** [net/core/pktgen.o] Error 1

 

Line 682 in the file pktgen.c states....I have not gone further than that:

     do_div(idle, NSEC_PER_USEC);

 

2) ############

     CC [M] net/dccp/ipv4.o

     drivers/scsi/advansys.c:72:2: warning: #warning this driver is still not properly converted to the DMA API [-Wcpp]

     drivers/scsi/advansys.c: In function 'advansys_get_sense_buffer_dma':

     drivers/scsi/advansys.c:8376:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'dma_cache_sync' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

     cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

 

     make[2]: *** [drivers/scsi/advansys.o] Error 1

     make[1]: *** [drivers/scsi] Error 2

     make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

 

 

Additionally this message showed up at the beginning of the build:

     Warning: cannot find a config file for the kernel

This while I did execute the kernel config..... could this be the issue? The script seems to be looking for the file : imx6_defconfig which does not exist.... These are the *defconfig I found:

 

dirk@dirk-desktop:~/projects/dcns/sabre/src/ltib$

ls ~/projects/dcns/sabre/src/ltib/rpm/BUILD/linux-3.0.35/arch/arm/configs/ | grep mx

mx1_defconfig

mx21_defconfig

mx27_defconfig

mx3_defconfig

mx51_defconfig

mxs_defconfig

 

As instructed I entered platform type: "imx6q" and "min profile" (the default). I am trying various things now (build different kernel versions, ), but haven't gotten any success yet....

 

Here's a link to someone who had a similar issue, but it never seems to have gotten resolved...

 

Help: LTIB build failed

 

 

What can be the issue?
