I try to install u-boot . I followed [ http://elinux.org/RPi_U-Boot ]

I downloaded source form git git clone git://git.denx.de/u-boot.git

and get the Raspberry compiler git clone git://github.com/raspberrypi/tools rpi-tools and export the path.

when I try to build u-boot like they said make -j2 -s rpi_b I get error Makefile:501: *** "System not configured - see README". Stop

what's the keyword to configure u-boot for Raspberry???


your error message clearly says: "* "System not configured - see README", that means you haven't configured your build system, it has no idea what board you need u-boot built for, and details about configuration could be found in README file -- read it and get enlightened.

most likely the following command will do the trick:

make rpi_b_config
  • I want to build u-boot for Raspberry. I think that your command is for that. I launch it : Configuring for rpi_b board... and then when I launch make -j2 -s rpi_b I get an other error : GEN include/autoconf.mk.dep cc1: error: bad value (armv5t) for -march= switch GEN include/autoconf.mk cc1: error: bad value (armv5t) for -march= switch CHK include/config/uboot.release. any idea – Makhlouf GHARBI May 16 '14 at 13:55
  • your compiler does not understand ARM architecture, are you sure you have installed cross-compilation toolchain and did export CROSS_COMPILE=... ? – lenik May 17 '14 at 4:12
  • thanks, you're right, when I made make rpi_b_config, I forget to export the cross-compilation path. – Makhlouf GHARBI May 17 '14 at 8:44
