Mandatory packages

  • the following commands should install all the needed prerequisites (assuming root shell):
 yum install gcc gcc-c++ make autoconf automake libtool bison flex gettext
 yum install patch subversion texinfo git wget
 yum install zlib-devel gettext-devel ncurses-devel lzo-devel libacl-devel
 yum install uuid-devel
 yum install python-serial python-usb
 yum install libssl-devel                         (to build u-boot 2014.04 mxsimage tool for the apf28)

Distribution specific tips

Fedora 13 & 14

  • as uuid-devel seems not installed at the right place, you may also need to do the following:
cd /usr/include
mkdir uuid
cp uuid.h uuid
cd /usr/lib
ln -s ../../lib64/
  • install glibc-static to allow insmod.static compilation:
rpm -ivh glibc-static-2.12.90-15.i686.rpm

Fedora 14

Following operations are needed:

rpm --import E8E40FDE.txt
    • Now you can downgrade make
yum downgrade make --releasever=13
    • And to avoid futur upgrade, you need to add

in /etc/yum.conf

Fedora 17

  • If you get this error during compilation (module-init-tools or other packages):
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc

you should install the glibc-static package:

$ yum install glibc-static

This is because the incriminated package build process wants to statically link against the C library.

RedHat Enterprise 5.2

Optional packages

  • Not mandatory but useful to add some extra packages:
yum install glib2-devel lzo2-devel

To compile java jamvm and gnu-classpath:

yum install java-*-openjdk
