    Makefile Capsule Error


      The following is the error msg when I tried to build the capsule file. I've already used the command

      sudo apt-get install build-essentials uuid-dev


      So what can I do so as to fix the problem listed below. Thank you very much.

        • 1. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

          Are you running your build on a 32 bit operating system or 64 bit?

          EDK2 defaults to 64 bit as I recall, and there is a parameter for that...

          I have had every build problem it is possible to have - I just don't remember all the steps to fix them. Wish I kept a journal.

          • 2. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

            On a 32 bit Ubuntu.


            Where can I find the parameter?

            • 3. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

              You are in luck - I found my post where I describe your exact error:

              Re: Capsule Build 0.8.0


              Fix is simple - and I use the same Ubuntu 32 bit system you do.

              • 4. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                Thank you. But I've read that post before. So I use the command

                BASETOOLS=~/buildtools-BaseTools-master/Bin/CYGWIN_NT-5.1-i686/ ../../spi-flash-tools_v0.7.5/Makefile capsule

                to build the capsule.


                I followed the steps to build the basic HelloWorld.epi. It succeeded. But When I run the command

                ../../spi-flash-tools_v0.7.5/Makefile capsule

                the same error occurs again.


                So I think maybe I'm wrong in building the BaseTools. So would mind giving me at least hints on how to build the BaseTools? I run the command make in the base directory of the BaseTools, but only the Test directory changed. I don't know why. Thank you again.

                • 5. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                  I am sorry - now I am totally confused. The capsule file is built only once, to replace the firmware. It has nothing to do with build tools other than you need the tools to build it. It has nothing to do with HelloWorld or any other sketch. We may need Alex on this one.


                  Also: verify you can cd to the file path listed in your basetools parameter. The uppercase B in Bin just looks - wrong.

                  • 6. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                    Hmm. In addition to what rmm200 said, I'd ask about that CYGWIN_NT I see in your path. Cygwin on Ubuntu? Really? Why? :-)

                    • 7. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                      I downloaded the basetools and don't know how to build the basetools, so I tried that path, and the error msg in rmm200's post disappeared, but mine occured. I tried the "make" command in the base directory but only to find the Test directory changed while others not. I think I didn't rebuild the basetools at all.


                      The second time (in a new terminal session) I followed the steps to build the HelloWorld.efi here SourceForge.net: Using EDK II with Native GCC 4.4 - tianocore. Since there is a step to build the shell environment, I think I don't need to configure the shell environment again. So the second time I tried Makefile capsule, I didn't add the BASETOOLS='...', but the same error msg occurs again.


                      Maybe the reason is that I didn't build the basetools. So would you mind giving me some hints on how to build the basetools. Thank you.

                      • 8. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                        Hi Alex,


                        I deleted the edk2/BaseTools/Source/C/bin directory and type make -C edke/BaseTools. The bin file was created. Then I tried  BASETOOLS=~/src/edk2/BaseTools/Source/C/bin/  ../../spi-flash-tools_v0.7.5/Makefile capsule but the same error msg occured again. I deleted the clanton_peak_EDK2 and decompressed it again, the same error is still there. I think this time I might build the basetools correctly. So any idea of how to fix this problem? Thank you very much.


                        The error msg is given below for a quick reference.

                        • 9. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                          Take note that "BASETOOLS=~/src/edk2/BaseTools/Source/C/bin/  ../../spi-flash-tools_v0.7.5/Makefile capsule" is two lines - not one. After the space is the command you manually enter on a separate command line.

                            like this in two seperate commands? ( there is not any breakline in the first command, it just displayed like that). Still that error.

                            • 11. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                              Well that looks a lot better.. BASETOOLS sets the location of where Makefile finds executables. Verify you can CD to that directory from where you are.

                              I don't know what else could be wrong, unless 0.7.5 does not honor the parameter. It worked for me on 0.9.0.

                              • 12. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                                When I type the directory, I use tab to finish the rest names of each directory, so I'm sure I can CD to that directory from where I am.

                                  同学,我是下午找你要链接的那个人,我也是跟你一样,在解决了第一个问题之后碰到了第二个同样的问题:Syntax error: "(" unexpected


                                  • 14. Re: Makefile Capsule Error

                                    Hmm, to  be honest I don't have any ideas other than it's indeed something with the basetools, but I'm not sure why it doesn't build for you. Any chance you could try a 64-bit Ubuntu to rule out at least this piece with a known problem on 32-bit ones?


                                    By the way, which version of Ubuntu you're using? 12.04 is highly recommended versus any newer ones (at least for the Yocto part, not sure if that applies to the firmware part).
