Same behavior when running "make debian/rootfs" !
It seems that the entire build is broken !

A quick workaround is to comment line 99 in:
--> trunk/debian/buildenv/

#sudo chroot $(DEBIAN_BUILD_DIR) bash -c "export LC_ALL=C; apt-get -y --force-yes install libc6-$(TARGET_ARCH)-cross libc6-dev-$(TARGET_ARCH)-linux-gnu gcc-4.3-$(TARGET_ARCH)-linux-gnu g++-4.3-$(TARGET_ARCH)-linux-gnu linux-kernel-headers-$(TARGET_ARCH)-cross"

But then bad things happen:

mkdir -p /home/debwrt/build/trunk/bin/ar71xx-angel-2.0-1-default/debian
cp -rav /home/debwrt/build/trunk/build/debian-ar71xx-generic_UBNTRSPRO-lenny/usr/src/libnl/*.deb /home/debwrt/build/trunk/bin/ar71xx-angel-2.0-1-default/debian
cp: cannot stat `/home/debwrt/build/trunk/build/debian-ar71xx-generic_UBNTRSPRO-lenny/usr/src/libnl/*.deb': No such file or directory
make: * [debian/package/libnl/deliver] Error 1

Anyway, if you comment the folowing lines the build will pass.
--> trunk/debian/buildenv/package/

# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/libnl/
# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/iw/

include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/debwrt-kernel-headers/

# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/robocfg/
# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/nvram/
# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/hostapd/

include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/shellinabox/
include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/libpar2/
include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/nzbget/

# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/libnl-tiny/
# include $(TOPDIR)/debian/package/swconfig/

The problem is that the commented sources will use for their build a downloaded toolchain
and not the toolchain that openwrt already compiled locally.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The emdebian repository was down / having problems. This should now be fixed.

Note: Indeed the OpenWrt toolchain is not used to compile the debian packages. For that the Emdebian tool chain is used.
