Trying to compile linux for Cyclone V Soc dev board - errors

I all, I get the following errors when I am following the steps on http://www.rocketboards.org/foswiki/documentation/alterasocdevelopmentboardyoctogettingstarted 

 

ERROR: Failed to obtain external Linaro toolchain version: Execution of '/opt/altera-linux/linaro/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.7-2012.11-20121123_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc -v' failed: command not found

WARNING: Host distribution "Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution. 

 

 

As far as I can tell, the paths it says it cannot find do exist. When I am in the correct directory, and run any files here, it tells me the file doesnt exist - odd that given its in the file list... 

 

I have Ubuntu running on a VM inside windows.

I encountered the same error. Can you please tell me which 32 bit libraries you're referring to? I was following the instructions from this site (http://www.rocketboards.org/foswiki/documentation/alterasocdevelopmentboardyoctogettingstarted) where I encountered the error. I'm using the SocKit board. Am I doing the right thing? 

 

I have added a screenshot and the log.txt (copied from console) of the error for you reference.

running: 

 

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs 

 

got rid of the errors.

Now when I run the next steps on the same website: 

source ~/yocto/altera-init ~/yocto/build 

 

all I get is the following error: 

ZSH_NAME: Undefined variable. 

 

Any ideas?

Use bash instead of zsh
