FX30 Legato 16.10.1.m3 build error with make command



I’m trying to build the Legato 16.10.1.m3 package but it’s failing with the following error. I’ve looked all over the forum for a solution but haven’t found one yet. Hope someone here has seen this before and can help me. I’m running it on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64bit.

Hi Eddie,
Could you please use 16.04 to build instead? The build system hasn’t been adapted for 18.04 yet.


Thanks Chris!

I got the Legato 16.10.1m3 package built and working in Developer Studio for my FX30S 3G modem. Building and downloading apps to the modem with no problem now. Thanks.
