buildroot failed with errors, what now?

Post by att2 »

Hello,
I tried to use buildroot to make a custom image for Odroid c4, but I failed.
I used exactly the instructions from : https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-c4/softw ... _buildroot
(plus I corrected one typo, it must have been meant "mkdir -p /opt/toolchains" instead of "/opt/toolchain" )

Anyway, after

Code: Select all

"source buildroot/build/setenv.sh odroidc4_release
make "
I got the following errors whilst compiling, after 10-15 minutes or so :

Code: Select all

libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c tools/kmod /home/arm1/c4_buildroot/output/odroidc4/host/bin/kmod

Okay, so, I am re-compiling. I found out that "make menuconfig" helps a lot - what I do is I simply remove all options that are problematic to compile.
HOWEVER, some kernal patch seems to go wrong, and I get an "Error 2" when compiling, and there it stops:

Libraries have been installed in:
   /home/att/c4_buildroot/output/odroidc4/host/lib

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the '-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the '-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to '/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

Can anyone kindly suggest of just what to do to get this right? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Or maybe you know a download link, or you can provide a download link, of just the basic "buildroot" image for Odroid C4? Would be awesome.......
Thanks!

So Buildroot cannot find the "expat" code, he cannot download it from anywhere. Why....? How to fix this?

This is an Amlogic issue, apparently they have moved/removed expat and likely other code from their site.

@tobetter any ideas?

Nice timing, I've pushed one commit for the kernel compile issue in the first post but do not have the issue about expat on my test build.

Oh! Now I see what the problem with "expat" is! They have had a security issue in that version, and they deleted that specific version from the server.
Thus, I was searching in the directory tree for "expat" and I found :
/c4_buildroot/buildroot/package/expat/expat.mk and expat.hash
expat.mk contains the version number, expat.hash the expected hash values, which you can create yourself with the help of md5sum, sha256sum etc.
So in my expat.mk I changed the version number so like:

Code: Select all

EXPAT_VERSION = 2.4.8
and in the expat.hash file :

Code: Select all

# From https://sourceforge.net/projects/expat/files/expat/2.2.6/
md5     0aa62f74c097c96ecbe62e656f352c3b                expat-2.4.8.tar.bz2
sha1    5bc8aed3107a04ba2a35d45646eb079e6abbfe1d        expat-2.4.8.tar.bz2

# Locally calculated
sha256  a247a7f6bbb21cf2ca81ea4cbb916bfb9717ca523631675f99b3d4a5678dcd16        expat-2.4.8.tar.bz2

I had to do the same thing with zlib in order to update it to zlib-1.2.12.tar.xz, but that zlib would still not compile... he said something about missing zlib despite I did install it on the compilation system.

Furthermore, I just tried to re-compile but failed :

SkiffOS supports Odroid C4 using Buildroot, if you

export SKIFF_WORKSPACE=c4
export SKIFF_CONFIG=odroid/c4
make configure

there will be a configured buildroot tree under ./workspaces/c4

https://github.com/skiffos/skiffos

Hope this helps.

An update for the buildroot failures.

I have been working with this buildroot installation. The problem is certain files have been relocated and this build is not being updated.

The real question is how do I submit the fixes so that others do not have to go through the painful experience of fixing this process. I would enjoy preventing others from having to do this.

Also, Amlogic has apparently dropped support for open linux source code (links on the website have been removed). This is the manufacturer of the CPU for the Odroid C4. I see this has a huge weakness that needs to be addressed. Amlogic is not responding to my request for technical support.

Is the issue with Buildroot from Hardkernel or SkiffOS?
The real question is how do I submit the fixes so that others do not have to go through the painful experience of fixing this process. I would enjoy preventing others from having to do this.
If with Buildroot, appreciate your patch if you do pull request to Hardkernel's Buildroot Github or point me out the repository or share the fix. Otherwise pleaes consult with @kidovate for SkiffOS.

Re: buildroot failed with errors, what now?

Post by MajorTom3D »

The issues are tied to the hardkernel version. I am surprised at the vast number of errors I am encountering. Basically, missing file locations are the following:

zlib-1.2.11.tar.xz

The directory location is no longer valid. I had to alter it to be located at https://zlib.net/fossils/zlib-1.2.11.tar.gz

Please notice that it is compressed differently so I had to regenerate a new hash for it.

Also corrected for the following libraries:

EXPAT
PCRE

Again, these are all related to location changes.

There also appears to be coding errors in the library source code. The first one is located in gdbusauth.c
The following error is generated:

gdbusauth.c: In function ‘_g_dbus_auth_run_server’:
gdbusauth.c:1302:11: error: ‘%s’ directive argument is null [-Werror=format-overflow=]
1302 | debug_print ("SERVER: WaitingForBegin, read '%s'", line);

The error is due to the next code line check for null is located following the statement rather than prior.

I am continuing to fix errors which are adding up. Also, as mentioned by other posters, there is an error with the installation instructions not using "make menuconfig". If this step is avoided, there are more errors that can be avoided if the installation instructions were updated.

I can not use the Skiff OS version due to the reboot problem related to the Odroid C4. Also, I should no have to use it while the hardkernel seems to be the stable release.

Thanks, unfortunately Buildroot is being broken from time to time and trying to fix when discovered but still...and not often maintained due to the low demand. It would be great if you can create a git commit patch so can apply it directly to the repostory. Thank you.

I can do that. Once I have a stable version running and tested over time, I will commit my changes. Thanks for the information.
