Wonder if you can help,

Im trying to install a toolchain in ubuntu 18.04 to compile a custom firmware for my router,the readme states to run ./configure but when i do so it comes back with :configure: error: cannot find install-sh, install.sh, or shtool in config "."/config

any help with this would be greatly appreciated..

This is for an Asus DSL-AC88U for which i downloaded the the source code from http://www.asus.com/uk/Networking/DSL-AC88U/HelpDesk_Download/ which contains the source code for router and toolchain.

After autoreconf -i the ./configure now runs but i run make i get

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/katana/Downloads/GPL_DSL_AC88U_v11006_build591/crosstools-arm-gcc-4.6-linux-3.4-uclibc-0.9.32-binutils-2.21-NPTL.Rel1.2'

  • Do you have GCC installed? Are you using an Acqua or RoadRunner board? – Mitch Mar 24 at 11:47
  • Hi Mitch i have gcc installed,im not using either an Acqua or RoadRunner board,this is for An Asus DSL-AC88U for which i downloaded the the source code from [link]://www.asus.com/uk/Networking/DSL-AC88U/HelpDesk_Download/ which contains the source code for router and toolchain.. – Katana1074 Mar 24 at 11:56

You need install build tools at first:

sudo apt-get install build-essential git ncurses-dev subversion zlib1g-dev m4 automake autoconf

And do not extract their toolchain to /opt at all. It will not work. It requires newer version of m4 and some other stuff. The firmware is based on OpenWRT, so it can compile toolchain on its own.

Then extract the DSL-AC88U_FW_V1_10_06_Build591_GPL_official.tar.bz2 archive and go to firmware directory

cd ~/Downloads/GPL_DSL_AC88U_v11006_build591/DSL-AC88U_FW_V1_10_06_Build591_GPL_official

# download package with broken link
wget http://lmde-mirror.gwendallebihan.net/latest/pool/main/m/mklibs/mklibs_0.1.34.tar.gz -O dl/mklibs_0.1.34.tar.gz

and compile both the firmware and the toolchain with

make V=s

Notes:

  1. the compilation on my 18.04.2 LTS machine failed, I did not get any factory/sysupgrade images.
  2. extracting the toolchain to /opt does not help:

    cd /
    sudo tar -xf ~/Downloads/GPL_DSL_AC88U_v11006_build591/DSL-AC88U_FW_V1_10_06_Build591_GPL_official/crosstools-arm-gcc-4.6-linux-3.4-uclibc-0.9.32-binutils-2.21-NPTL.Rel1.2.tar.bz2
    

    and ends with

    autom4te: need GNU m4 1.4 or later: /opt/toolchains/crosstools-arm-gcc-4.6-linux-3.4-uclibc-0.9.32-binutils-2.21-NPTL/usr/bin/m4
    aclocal-1.11: autom4te failed with exit status: 1
    Makefile:950: recipe for target 'aclocal.m4' failed

  • ok now i have about 5 errors towards the end of the compile 1st is : 1/DSL-AC88U_FW_V1_10_06_Build591_GPL_official/toolchain/wrapper' Testing external toolchain for ipv6 support ... Toolchain directory '/opt/toolchains/crosstools-arm-gcc-4.6-linux-3.4-uclibc-0.9.32-binutils-2.21-NPTL' does not exist. failed – Katana1074 Mar 24 at 15:54
  • Then the problem is a bit harder. And you should start to learn OpenWRT BuildRoot documentation to get it compiled. I can not help with it. – N0rbert Mar 24 at 17:28
  • Ok `ill have a look thank you for your help... – Katana1074 Mar 24 at 17:33
