Banana pi BPI-R2 source code open on github
How do I actually get this working to produce an image file for myself please. Could you give explicit instructions in the README.md file please ?
I posted a few guidelines here, it might help you:
When I run ./build.sh, I got errors:
Makefile:961: recipe for target ‘drivers’ failed make: *** [drivers] Error 2 make: Leaving directory ‘/home/liu/project/bpi-r2/BPI-R2-bsp/linux-mt’ Makefile:50: recipe for target ‘kernel’ failed make: *** [kernel] Error 2
Would anybody give some suggestion? Thanks!
please post your full log…maybe you have not installed some requirements (gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf, u-boot-tools)
have you install requirements?
fatal error: linux/compiler-gcc7.h: No such file or directory
looks like gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf (or something from gcc-core) is missing
I installed the tools:
arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 7.2.0-6ubuntu1) 7.2.0

which host-system do you use to build? recommended is ubuntu 16.4, i had build successful on ubuntu 14.4
maybe you have to use gcc6
My host is Ubuntu 17.10.
FYI i had to do some manual fixes to get it compiling with gcc7, I don’t have access to a patch right now, but they are quite easy to do. However you could also use gcc6 of course, that should work out of the box.
Guys, do you have any plans to provide R2 source code for Raspbian as well? I tried the Rapsbian image from https://dev.banana-pi.org.cn/Image/BPI-R2/2017-09-14-raspbian-stretch-preview-bpi-r2-sd-emmc.img.zip and liked it much. It uses less RAM and CPU power and behaves more responsive then Ubuntu image. Raspbian seems to be a better choice for ARM based board then Ubuntu to me. Don’t you think so?
We just validate the building proccess on Ubuntu 16.04 64bit, can you please try this OS on host. And the version of arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc is newer than I’m using, gcc version 5.4 is recommended.
Thank you all! I finally build successfully on Ubuntu 16.04.
