DSL-2888A Firmware compile question
« on: December 10, 2020, 04:41:49 AM »

Hi,
I am trying to compile firmware for this modem.I get GPL source code from offical dlink site.I installed ubuntu 14.04 as directed in readme file.
Readme from GPL package:
Code: [Select]
Introduction
This file will show you how to build the DSL-2888A working FW.
The workstation we used to build the image is:
OS Version:Ubuntu 14.04(64-bit version)
OS Kernel Version: 4.8.4
gcc (Ubuntu 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04.3) 4.8.4   #must intall GCC before comply

The workstation LAB used to build the image is:
Linux Version:Ubuntu 14.04(64-bit version)

Procedure: (~# means command)
Setp1. Check fakeroot command
(Make sure your username have sudo authority.)
~# su your_username (Use the sudo account to install)
~# password: (Input the password)
~# cd
~# cp /tmp/dsl-2888a.tar.gz ./dsl-2888a.tar.gz
~# tar -zxvf dsl-2888a.tar.gz
~# cd dsl-2888a
~# make
You can find image in ./dsl-2888a/bin/VSPM3XX/
The image "DSL-2888A_AU_2.31_V1.1.47ae53-Image-all.bin" is for upgrading firmware via Device Web GUI. You can see the firmware version is "AU_2.31" in Web of "Device Info".

 but i am getting toolchain error which seems odd:
Code: [Select]
