I've recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 together with MacOS on my MBP 2018.

Now I'm trying to install the drivers from MCMrARM, but running the Makefile gives me this:

make -C /lib/modules/5.4.0-48-generic/build M=/home/hcpieck/mbp2018-bridge-drv modules
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.4.0-48-generic'
arch/x86/Makefile:147: CONFIG_X86_X32 enabled but no binutils support
make[1]: gcc: Command not found
CC [M] /home/hcpieck/mbp2018-bridge-drv/pci.o
/bin/sh: 1: gcc: not found
make[2]: *** [scripts/Makefile.build:275: /home/hcpieck/mbp2018-bridge-drv/pci.o] Error 127
make[1]: *** [Makefile:1734: /home/hcpieck/mbp2018-bridge-drv] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.4.0-48-generic'
make: *** [Makefile:10: all] Error 2

What am I missing?

gcc: Command not found means that gcc is not installed.


sudo apt install build-essential

to install required packages.

  • YES, that did the trick! Thank you for you quick response Pilot6!
