I’m currently working on building the MaxLinear multiport serial driver for the xr17v358 within my development environment, which consists of a custom Yocto Linux distribution based on Toradex Apalis i.MX8QM hardware.
However, I’ve encountered an issue while running the ‘make’ command, as indicated in the following error message:
root@apalis-imx8-07013853:~/xr17-lnx2.6.32-and-newer-pak_ver2.6# make make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/home/root/xr17-lnx2.6.32-and-newer-pak_ver2.6 modules make: Entering directory '/lib/modules/5.15.129-6.4.0-devel+git.67c3153d20ff/build' scripts/Makefile.build:459: warning: overriding recipe for target 'modules.order' Makefile:1508: warning: ignoring old recipe for target 'modules.order' CHK include/generated/compile.h make: *** No rule to make target 'init/main.o', needed by 'init/built-in.a'.

I’ve also noticed that there is no ‘build’ folder under ‘/lib/modules/5.15.129-6.4.0-devel+git.67c3153d20ff/’ after I installed the image on the target device. To resolve this, I need to compile the SDK using the ‘bitbake tdx-reference-multimedia-image -c do_populate_sdk’ command. Then, I can copy the ‘build’ folder from the host location ‘/opt/tdx-xwayland/6.4.0/sysroots/cortexa72-cortexa53-tdx-linux/lib/modules/5.15.129-6.4.0-devel+git.67c3153d20ff/build.’
I made the following changes in the ‘local.conf’ configuration file to ensure that the kernel source is included in the image:
CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "kernel-modules" TOOLCHAIN_TARGET_TASK:append = " kernel-devsrc"
Another finding is, there is no linux-headers folder inside /usr/src/ folder.
In the document provided by Maxlinear, the make entering directory of /usr/share. Please find the reference image below
But in my compiliation, it is entering into /lib/modules/
I’m also attaching the Maxlinear document for your reference,
Any guidance or assistance in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
