Colibri iMX6ULL and samba


I am having issues adding samba to my image. I am building console-tdx-image for Colibri iMX6ULL module.

Is samba supported on Colibri iMX6ULL module?

Build gives me error that cross answers file is incomplete. I have attached error log and cross-answers-arm.txt file.

Am I missing some build dependency package?

Thank you in advance

Hi @mlinar

Thanks for writing to the Toradex Community!

Regarding your issue, did you add samba to your image?
Could you share other changes to local.conf or any other files?
Which branch did you use to compile?

Best regards,

Hi @jaski.tx

Yes I have added samba and cifs-utils to local.conf:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " \
    cifs-utils \
    samba \

There were no other changes to any file.
I am using latest branch version 3.0. (repo init -b LinuxImage3.0 and repo sync)

HI @mlinar

I can reproduce this issue. We will come back to you once we have more information within this week?
Thanks for your patience.

Best regards,

Hi @mlinar

I found the root cause. A fix we did to successfully build an older version makes now do_configure fail. The fix nowadays is no longer needed, so reverting the commit which added it is the easiest way forward.

In meta-toradex-demos:

git revert -s 1ea8042efa053e94c011d4b2e8835cf4e2e05ad6

Alternatively one could add the following line to meta-openembedded/meta-networking/files/waf-cross-answers/cross-answers-arm.txt :

checking for clnt_create(): OK


Thanks @max.tx

Reverting commit worked.
