Description

With debian stretch, when building the toolchain we have issues like that:
.../toolchain/src/binutils/binutils-2.25/bfd/configure: line 16741: /usr/bin/sed: No such file or directory

with the following binaries:
  • /usr/bin/grep
  • /usr/bin/mkdir
  • /usr/bin/sed

The solution would be to either fix the toolchain build script, or to instruct the user to symlinks grep, sed and mkdir from /bin to /usr/bin/

Updated by Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli 25 days ago

  • Target version changed from Replicant 6.0 0004 to Any version

For Replicant 6.0, debian stretch has the following binaries:

/bin/grep
/bin/mkdir
/bin/sed

It would also be a good idea to document which FSDG distributions have the issue.

Once #1787 is fixed for Replicant 6, we would need to address this bug as well.

  • Target version changed from Any version to Replicant 6.0 0004

Opps I re-read too fast, it was the opposite. We need /usr/bin/ instead of /bin

  • Resolution set to fixed

I've added a note in Replicant60BuildTips, so it should now not block the build anymore.

TODO:
  • Fix instead of doing a workaround
