Unable to open menuconfig in bitbake

I was trying to open/modify menuconfig in order to use SDIO WiFi but I am getting below errors:
I do not have any problem in “bitbake -k console-tdx-image” build. I use LinuxImageV2.8
Could you please help me on this what is wrong?

I use “bitbake virtual/kernel -c menuconfig” to open menuconfig, it takes while but at last I get errors.

What I myself have used is bitbake -c menuconfig virtual/kernel. I had not had any trouble running it like that. Maybe arguments are in different order?

Hi @jaimeibk
Thanks for your reply. it doesn’t help and I get same error.
I use below steps to pull code and build.

mkdir ~/bin
export PATH=~/bin:$PATH
curl http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

git config --global user.name “First Last”
git config --global user.email username@iherb.com

mkdir oe-core
cd oe-core
repo init -u http://git.toradex.com/toradex-bsp-platform.git -b LinuxImageV2.8
repo sync
. export

Modify conf/local.conf file:
Add/uncomment MACHINE ?=colibri-imx7-emmc
Add ACCEPT_FSL_EULA = “1” at the end of file

cd oe-core
. export
bitbake -c menuconfig virtual/kernel
bitbake -k console-tdx-image

is there any other way to modify config and enable SDIO Interface for WiFi?

Thank you

What is the Linux Distribution ( name -a ) on your host?

Hi @jaski.tx
I am sorry I can’t access setup today but I have some log message if that helps you know ‘name -a’

repo init -u http://git.toradex.com/toradex-bsp-platform.git -b LinuxImageV2.8

The Angstrom Distribution colibri-imx7-emmc ttymxc0
Angstrom v2017.12 - Kernel
Colibri-iMX7-eMMC_Console-Image 2.8b6 20190722

Thank You

Hi @neeraj.verma

I mean the linux distribution of your host and not the module? And the command is ( uname -a ),

Best regards,

Hi @jaski.tx
Sure, will share output of ‘uname -a’ by Monday as soon as I reach office.
I am actually trying to bring-up WiFi connected from SDIO.

Thank you

Hi @neeraj.verma ,

libncurses is missing on your host. Just install libncurses5-dev and it should compile.

Thank you for your help, I am able to open menuconfig after sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev
