First, I would like to thank LG and the community for their work and support of the open source community. This is a FANTASTIC move on their part, and I can’t image the incredible products which might come from this effort.
I think the build documentation is very limited and poorly documented. I’m specifically talking about the Setting Up -> Requirements page found found here. It says that it can only be built on a Raspberry Pi 3, but I can’t find any specifics about Raspbian version and so forth. Even worse, the requirements specifically list Intel i5 dual-core and a minimum of 8GB of memory, which is not possible on the Raspberry Pi.
I have no problem downloading build-webos via git, but I run into a few errors. What version of Raspbian is a supported build platform?
When I run scripts/prerequisites.sh, I get these errors:
E: Package 'gcc-multilib' has no installation candidate E: Unable to locate package g++-multilib E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'g++-multilib'
These are apt-get errors, and there is no warning of any problems with the prerequisite script. I don’t know if any of these *-multitab packages are causing my build error, but I seriously doubt it.
When I try to build it using make (not bitbake), I get this error:
WARNING: Host distribution "Raspbian-9.4" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution. ERROR: OE-core's config sanity checker detected a potential misconfiguration. Either fix the cause of this error or at your own risk disable the checker (see sanity.conf). Following is the list of potential problems / advisories: Specified SDKMACHINE value is not valid
