(petalinux 2018.2) petalinux-config -c kernel throw error

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I am running Centos7.2 on native with petalinux 2018.2 .

I create a hdf file of my peoject. When I run petalinux-config -c u-boot or petalinux-config -c kernel.  There are some errors on the terminal. But there is no error when I run petalinux-config or the petalinux-build.

[zhengjia@hw54 zcu102]$

 

I try to use the methods to reslove the error.

1.clean the project of petalinux

petalinux-buidl -x mrproper

2.create a short path to store the petalinux project.

 

But I still can not reslove the errors. Could you help me? Have no ideas about this.

Hi @zhengjia,

When you download the petalinux installer you no need to change any permission to installer make sure your downloads and installer path has read write permissions.

Hi @zhengjia,

 

The issue here is bitbake is not able to spawn/launch a terminal due to permission issue.

 

This could be due to multiple reasons.

 

  1. XTERM/other terminals are not installed/setup properly
  2. You terminal is not set to BASH by as default.

 

Which terminal are you using?

 

Also can you try setting the OE_TERMINAL = "xterm" in <plnx-proj-root>/project-spec/meta-user/conf/petalinuxbsp.conf

Thanks,
Sandeep

Hi Moderator

 

The ternimal set bash as default. I add the OE_TERMINAL="xterm" in the petalinuxbsp.conf file. The terminal reminder error.

 

[zhengjia@hw54 zcu102]$ petalinux-config -c kernel

ERROR: bitbake failed to cleansstate kernel
ERROR: Failed to config kernel.

 

 

Now I use the MobaXterm. So I try to use different terminal(Tera Term and Xshell ) to resolve the error. but It still have the error. I do not know how to resolve the error.

 

PS: when I run over petalinux-config --get-hw-description<>, It is a error.

ERROR: OE-core's config sanity checker detected a potential misconfiguration.
ERROR: Parse failure with the specified layer added

So, I create a empty sanity.conf file in ./build/conf. Is there any problem?

Hi @zhengjia,

 

Looks like something went wrong during your build or in build setup.

 

Can you clean the build and relaunch the build. And post the output of the logs.

 

$ petalinux-build -x mrproper
$ petalinux-config -c kernel
Thanks,

[zhengjia@hw54 petalinux]$ cd zcu102

[zhengjia@hw54 zcu102]$ petalinux-config --get-hw-description=../zcu102_hdf/

Hi, I check the error information.

When I run petalinux-build -c kernel

The error information is "Please use a umask whick allows a+rx and u_rwx "

I install the petalinux package in no-root user. Do you know how to fix the error?

I have the same problem.I tried many ways,and sloved it.

To use xfce4-terminal .

I changed gonme-terminal to xfce4-terminal in ubuntu16.04,the petalinux-config can run well.I don't know why,and if you know please tell me.

AND if this reply help you,please Click the 'Kudos' button.Just let it help more people.

AND I suggest the questioner don't mark the reply (that can't slove the problem)as Solution,This will mislead everyone。For example , I dont know how to fix this problem after read all reply.

Thank you for your post.,   uxterm also worked for me.

I had the same issue:

Exception: PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

origination from the call  ' terminal.__init__(self, sh_cmd, title, env, d)'   in terminal.py:  

 After trying many suggestions, I followed your lead and changed  gnome-terminal to  'uxterm'

and  in petalinuxbsp.conf  :  OE_TERMINAL = "uxterm"    

After that no crashes and configuration window pops up. But the window looked screwed up.I had  to pull the window from  a corner to enlarge it to look normal.  To fix that , in the window changed  EDIT>Preferences>Appearance  default geometry to 130x30 (or whatever size work for you).  After that when I build the kernel,  normal configuration widow pops up and build works.

Hope someone finds this useful. I spent hours fighting this.
