Problem in installing petalinux tool

Hi, 

 

I am installing petalinux on a virtual machine with ubuntu 16.04. 

I have a shared folder between ubuntu and windows where the petalinux-v2018.1-final-installer.run is present. when I run it, it automatically takes this location as installation location and runs the installation. But after some time it fails due to errors like 

 

/tools/linux-i386/gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc/lib/libatomic.so: Cannot create symlink to ‘libatomic.so.1.2.0’: Read-only file system
tar: ./tools/linux-i386/gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc/lib/libssp.so.0: Cannot create symlink to ‘libssp.so.0.0.0’: Read-only file system

 

Any suggestion how to solve it? 

 

Thanks 

Best regards

Re: Problem in installing petalinux tool

Based on your 1st post, the problem appears to be: "Read-only file system". The directory where you are trying to install (/media/sd_WindowsShareUbuntu) cannot be written. You could confirm this by manually trying to create a file there.

You'll need to either make it writeable, or install it somewhere else where you do have write access.

One other note: if you are trying to install into a Windows (FAT or NTFS) filesystem, I would expect problems later on...
