Cannot compile U-Boot for arria 5

Hello all, 

 

 

I am facing some problem that I cannot build u-boot for arria5. 

The platform is x86_64 Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. 

 

 

At first I executed as below. 

 

$ cd intelFPGA/18.0/embedded $ ./embedded_command_shell.sh $ ...# download and install gcclinaro-7.3.1 $ export CROSS_COMPILE=/path/to/linaro_installation_directory/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf- $ mkdir -p ~/u-boot $ cd ~/u-boot $ git clone https://github.com/altera-opensource/u-boot-socfpga.git $ cd u-boot-socfpga $ git checkout rel_socfpga_v2017.09_18.06.02_pr # This tag is the latest of rel* $ make socfpga_arria5_config $ make  

 

On the make, I got the next messages. 

 

 

... LD u-boot drives/ddr/altera/built-in.o: In function `sdram_calculate_size': ~/u-boot/u-boot-sockfpga/drivers/ddr/altera/sdram.c:482: undefined reference to `socfpga_get_sdram_config' path/to/linaro_installation_directory/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-ld.bfd: BFD (Linaro_Binutils-2018.05) 2.28.2.20170706 assertion fail /home/tcwg-buildslave/workspace/tcwg-make-release/builder-arch/adm64/label/tcwg-x86_64-build/target/arm-linux-gnueabihf/snapshots/binutils-gdb.git~users~linaro~binutils-2_28-branch/bfd/elf32-arm.c:9514 make: *** Error 1  

 

 

However, on a commit tagged with v2018.07-rc3, we successfully built u-boot. 

Could you tell me why this fails? 

Or is it enough to use u-boot from a commit “v2018.07-rc3”? 

 

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

You actually can checkout the U-Boot based on branches.

 

For instant on Arria 5, you can checkout the latest mainstream with “git checkout master” command https://github.com/altera-opensource/u-boot-socfpga/tree/master. The latest mainstream should consist of latest code and updates.

 

Similarly, on the old branch which is well tested, you can run command “git checkout socfpga_v2013.01.01” https://github.com/altera-opensource/u-boot-socfpga/tree/socfpga_v2013.01.01.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Joseph,
