I am following the instructions in this link to change the Linux kernel configuration in NITROGEN6X board from Boundary Devices. My question is about git clone/checkout.

The above commands ask to clone the whole repos and then checkout to one specific branch. So basically we have to download more than 1 GB of data and checkout to one branch. What I did was to go to the github repos and find the branch that I am looking for and download a zip of it. Everything goes well except the last command (make -C ubuntunize tarball). It gives me the following errors:

 

 

 

Interestingly, if I clone and then checkout, then everything compiles and the final tarball is created successfully. why is that?

 

Note: I am using the "boundary-imx_3.14.28_1.0.0_ga" branch.
