Building Linux failed


#1

Hi,

I’m doing step descibed at https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/GSRDCompilingLinux for building linux.

Could you help me please to understand the meaning of these lines :

export KERNEL_PROVIDER=linux-altera-ltsi
$ export KERNEL_TAG=refs/tags/ACDS17.1_REL_GSRD_PR # Check above for newer release tags and replace it with the version you are building with
$ export UBOOT_TAG=refs/tags/ACDS17.1_REL_GSRD_PR # Check above for newer release tags and replace it with the version you are building with
$ export KBRANCH=socfpga-4.1.33-ltsi # Check above for release branch to use
$ BB_ENV_EXTRAWHITE="$BB_ENV_EXTRAWHITE KBRANCH KERNEL_TAG UBOOT_TAG KERNEL_PROVIDER"

Because building failed.
I don’t find branch socfpga-4.1.33-ltsi and any tags mentionned above in repository https://github.com/altera-opensource/linux-socfpga.

Thanks a lot

Sebastien

I fully answered a similar question here: Why all the tags where removed from altera-opensource/linux-socfpga?

Basically, Altera (Intel) removed all the old baselines that had a major software vulnerability. You’ll have to pick a new baseline to build against and change the environment variables accordingly
