I am facing problems building the 2010R1 toolchain on ubuntu 10.10. Following are the steps I followed:


1. After a fresh installation of ubuntu 10.10, followed the following page to install all the SW packages




2. Then downloaded the latest toolchain release, uclinux and u-boot using SVN from the linkss given here -




3. Then fired the commands to build the toolchain by referring the following page-




4. Problem is that the build never completes, basically I get no message after "bfin-elf: binutils/gdb: building". Build process does not move past this point even after waiting for hours. Following is the screen dump and attached is the generated log file.

I've sucessfully compiled the 2010R1 toolchain using the same process on ubuntu 9.10, it just hangs on ubuntu 10.10. Any clue why this may be happening? Anyone else facing similar issues?

first off, why are you building from source ?  just use the pre-compiled binaries already provided.

Clean everything out first, then try again.

Hi Ashish,


Did you resolve your  issue?  Did you happen to try Ubuntu 10.04?
