Error Building LibreELEC Version 8.2.5

  • I'm attempting to build Version 8.2.5 on a Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-43-generic i686) system.

    I've followed the instructions to compile the code found on this website but I get the following errors:

    From the research I've done, it appears that the problem may be related to the following comment I found in the glob.c file:

    If I should be using the glob function from the GNU C Library instead of compiling glob.c, how would I make that happen?

    Or if I have to compile the glob.c file, how would I reconcile the reference to the __alloca function?


    The command I used to compile was:

    Quote

    PROJECT=RPi2 ARCH=arm CUSTOM_VERSION="JM_8.2.5" make image


    I've also attached my logs for your inspection:

    rpi.log

    rpiError.log


    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

  • For 8.2.5 you should use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS if you don't want problems.

    Better support for Amlogic devices: use CoreELEC
