Problem compiling Linux Kernel linux-3.0.35-fsimx6-V2.0

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to compile the latest Linux Kernel on Fedora release 23.
    When I run the command 'make uImage', I get the following error:

    It seems there is a problem with Perl v5.22.0.

    How can I fix this problem?

    Best regards,

  • We also have issues with new Fedora versions because Fedora uses very new software components that break compatibility with the tools that are expected by Buildroot. For example Buildroot has problems with GCC >=5.0 that is part of Fedora since Fedora 22. We have addressed this problem here at the moment by using older Fedora versions on our development virtual machines. Fedora 21 is working quite well.

    At the moment we are preparing several releases based on Kernel 3.14.38. These will allow us to use newer Buildroot releases again. Then hopefully these issues with the need for older host software will vanish over time, too. We expect the regular fsimx6 release with 3.14 kernel at the beginning of 2016.
