Failed to build gcc for aarch64_cortex-a53


I'm building the master branch (commit) on Ubuntu 22.04, but got the following errors.

Step to reproduce:

./scripts/feeds update -a && ./scripts/feeds install -a
# select MediaTek Ralink ARM & Filogic 8x0 (MT798x)
make menuconfig
make defconfig download clean world V=s -j$(nproc) 2>&1 | tee build.log | grep -i -E "^make.*(error|[12345]...Entering dir)"

Anything I can do?

Try in a VM with a more recent Ubuntu version or latest Debian stable.

You can do "make targetclean" or "make dirclean" to clean also the toolchain, and then it will be rebuilt in the next make. your current "make clean" does not touch into toolchain.

gdb is intertwined with gcc etc., and as musl and gcc have been upgraded recently, it is best to rebuild it wholle.


I build for that target without problems on Ubuntu 22.04.

I usually do a full reset before building just like @hnyman advised (make dirclean), takes some extra time but saves some trouble.
After that I do:

make -j $(($(nproc)+1)) download #(-j sets number of CPU's)
make -j $(($(nproc)+1)) toolchain/install V=s 2>&1 | tee build.log | grep -i -E "^make.*(error|[12345]...Entering dir)"
make world V=s 2>&1 | tee build.log | grep -i -E "^make.*(error|[12345]...Entering dir)"

There might be better/smarter ways but it works for me :slight_smile:

I have tried to delete the entire source directory and clone it again, it doesn't work.

Ah, I also tried you commands before with single-thread compilation, but got the same error.

Has been reported before: I had this problem when COMPILING it

You are using the official openwrt source?

Yes, I'm using the official source, without any extra change.
