Replicant 4.2 build dependencies installation

Replicant can only be built on 64 bit x86 architectures, building on 32 bit x86 systems is no longer supported.
However, some prebuilt tools are still 32 bit x86 executables and some host tools are generated as 32 bit x86 executables.

It is recommended to have at least 4GB of RAM available.

make sure that you have libxml2-dev installed

missing lib32readline5-dev

If the packages manager complains about lib32readline5-dev being missing, it has to be replaced with lib32readline-gplv2-dev in the command line.

missing /usr/lib/zconf.h header

If the /usr/lib/zconf.h header is missing, a symlink has to be created:
ln -s /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/zconf.h /usr/lib/zconf.h
  • If errors messages about incompatible library versions are shown, some symlinks have to be created. For instance:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/

Replicant 4.2 export_includes

To fix the following:

make: *** No rule to make target `.../out/target/product/maguro/obj/SHARED_LIBRARIES/libsamsung-ipc_intermediates/export_includes', needed by `.../out/target/product/maguro/obj/SHARED_LIBRARIES/libsamsung-ril_intermediates/import_includes'.  Stop.
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Run the following command:

mkdir -p out/target/product/maguro/obj/SHARED_LIBRARIES/libsamsung-ipc_intermediates/export_includes

Arch Linux-based systems


Base packages (from the Parabola repositories) installation:

pacman -S --needed core/bison core/flex core/make core/ncurses core/xz core/zlib extra/bc extra/git extra/gperf extra/gperftools libre/jdk7-openjdk extra/openjdk7-src libre/jre7-openjdk extra/wget extra/zip community/squashfs-tools community/pngcrush libre/unzip community/repo

Some additional repositories are required to retrieve some of the build dependencies.

To enable those repositories, the following should be added to /etc/pacman.conf:

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

For these changes to take effect, the packages database should be updated:

pacman -Syu

Additional packages installation:

pacman -S --needed multilib/lib32-glibc multilib/gcc-multilib multilib/lib32-readline multilib/lib32-ncurses multilib/lib32-zlib


  • repo may complain about experimental python 3 support: python 2 has to be set as default instead:
    ln -s /usr/bin/python2 /usr/local/bin/python
