Hi All,

I'm struggling to get the flash image working under Ubuntu 18.04

I've done the following, as from the Wiki:

1. git clone https://github.com/OLIMEX/openwrt -b rt5350f
2. cd Openwrt
3. make

I get the following:

$ make
Checking 'working-make'... ok.
Checking 'case-sensitive-fs'... ok.
Checking 'gcc'... ok.
Checking 'working-gcc'... ok.
Checking 'g++'... ok.
Checking 'working-g++'... ok.
Checking 'ncurses'... ok.
Checking 'zlib'... ok.
Checking 'libssl'... ok.
Checking 'tar'... ok.
Checking 'find'... ok.
Checking 'bash'... ok.
Checking 'patch'... ok.
Checking 'diff'... ok.
Checking 'cp'... ok.
Checking 'seq'... ok.
Checking 'awk'... ok.
Checking 'grep'... ok.
Checking 'getopt'... ok.
Checking 'stat'... ok.
Checking 'md5sum'... ok.
Checking 'unzip'... ok.
Checking 'bzip2'... ok.
Checking 'wget'... ok.
Checking 'perl'... ok.
Checking 'python'... ok.
Checking 'svn'... ok.
Checking 'git'... failed.
Checking 'file'... ok.
Checking 'openssl'... ok.
Checking 'ldconfig-stub'... ok.

Build dependency: Please install Git (git-core) >= 1.6.5

Prerequisite check failed. Use FORCE=1 to override.

make[1]: *** [prepare-tmpinfo] Error 2

I then got the following patch,

git-version-check-fix.patch and use git apply ggit-version-check-fix.patch

I then run make again with more success, but I get the following:

$ make

I can't seem to fix this even with make distclean

I forgot to add that I've tried the suggested:

What is the GCC version?

Maybe some dependencies are missing probably libc6-dev or maybe build-essential. Use apt install to get those.

 Also, please note that the OpenWrt version linked on the Olimex wiki and you are using is rather old, and since then there is full support for the RT5350F-OLINUXINO boards in the mainline OpenWrt project, so probably you get better results with using that one, and most importantly better support from the OpenWrt community.

This reminds me of a bug we had when trying to compile OpenWrt from the Olimex source as you did with Ubuntu 18.04 as Host compiler. It had something to do not only with the version of GCC, but with many other packages and fixes necessary.

The compilation process works well on Ubuntu 16.04

I'd try what LubOlimex suggested.
The simplest workaround for us at that time ( since we didn't want to waste time on it ) was to create a VM with Ubuntu 16.04

Edit:
We recentrly tried using Docker to use Ubuntu 16.04 and that seems much simpler and efficient.
