Problem in compiling LEDE on Ubuntu 14.04.5 with Target=IPQ806X

Hi,

I have downloaded the latest LEDE from github and I am trying to compile it on Ubuntu 14.04 with Kernel 4.4.0-66-generic. I follow the steps mentioned in Quick Image Building Guide
I set the target to IPQ806x since this is the CPU architecture of my router. However, during the compilation process I get an error related to missing a file named term.m. I search for the file using the following command

dpkg-query --search term.h

I get the following output:

virtualbox-5.0: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/include/iprt/initterm.h
virtualbox-5.0: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxnetadp/include/iprt/initterm.h
libncurses5-dev:amd64: /usr/include/term.h
virtualbox-5.0: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxpci/include/iprt/initterm.h
virtualbox-5.0: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxnetflt/include/iprt/initterm.h
virtualbox-5.0: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/include/internal/initterm.h

This means the file already exists in the system. So how can I solve this problem?

Here is the output of the compilation process with V=s

That util-linux upgrade to 2.29.2 has already been reverted. Git pull updated sources and rebuild. Possibly your error was from that failed update.

Thanks. Git Pull fixed the problem and now I have the binary file.

We ran into some fun dependency issues, it's fixed now and committed. :slight_smile:
