[Solved] How to compile 15.05 release (“Build dependency: Please install Git (git-core) >= 1.6.5” message


https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/devel/patches

It is an openwrt bug in include/prereq-build.mk:
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/chaos_calmer/include/prereq-build.mk#L148

But the link do not exist. I have git-version-check-fix.patch, but do not know, how to use it.

Which git version do you have installed in your buildhost?
Just install a current git version to your PC.

git is not part of Openwrt sources, it is an external prerequisite. Mentioned on the list here: https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/buildroot.exigence

And no idea what is "spack", and what is its relevance to Openwrt/LEDE...

Ps. the correct link to old chaos calmer sources would be
https://github.com/openwrt/chaos_calmer/blob/chaos_calmer/include/prereq-build.mk#L148

There's a patch for the issue...

~/Oolite8/openwrt15$ git --version
git version 2.16.1

Is it a current git version?

~/Oolite8/openwrt15$ git apply git-version-check-fix.patch solved the problem. Link:
