Building root filesystem and BusyBox


Hi all I have one moge problem using the tool chain. I am following howto at RocketBoards

The kernel compilation goes smooth and I am followig it step by step just using latest sources:

git clone
git clone

export CROSS_COMPILE=$(pwd)/gcc-linaro-6.2.1-2016.11-i686_arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-

cd linux-socfpga
git tag –l rel*
git checkout rel_socfpga-4.7_16.10.02_pr 

make -C linux-socfpga/ ARCH=arm menuconfig
make -C linux-socfpga/ ARCH=arm LOCALVERSION= zImage
make -C linux-socfpga/ ARCH=arm LOCALVERSION= all

then I start to compile root file system
I have to deactivate perl (the compilation is complaining)
eval $(perl -Mlocal::lib=--deactivate-all)
then I make nconfig for the buildroot
make -C buildroot ARCH=ARM BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_PATH=/$(pwd)/gcc-linaro-6.2.1-2016.11-i686_arm-linux-gnueabihf nconfig

seting up the toolchain

every thing goes smooth upto this point. Then when I make menu config it looks like it mess up the toolchain path
make -C buildroot busybox-menuconfig. The menuconfig runs but while exiting I get the error

I also tryed to define toolchain manually with path but I receivew the same error. I also deleted everything a couple of times and started from scratch and I always end up here. Any hint ?


I get the same problem. Any ideas how to solve this?
