Linux kernel build process failures

Hi,

I want to build the Linux kernel as described in the following link:

https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/GSRDCompilingLinux

However, there are some errors when trying to compile it. Below I’m pasting the output when I try to run the bitbake command. Could you please help me to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I’m seeing the same error message. Have you found a workaround?

Hi Stan,

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to solve the problem.
