Hi Daniele,

We had a similar problem recently. Have you installed the python-dev packages on your host?

Best regards,

thank you, now the process continues close to the end, until another error is issued:

checking whether to use python... yes
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking for python2.7... no
configure: error: python is missing or unusable
make[1]: *** [configure-gdb] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/dat/development/rtems/src/rtems-source-builder/rtems/build/sparc-rtems4.12-gdb-7.12-i686-linux-gnu-1/build'

error: building sparc-rtems4.12-gdb-7.12-i686-linux-gnu-1

it seems it is not able to find or use python but the tool (version 2.7) is installed in /usr/bin, in fact I am able to run it from a terminal window

I do have zlib.h, actually there are three zlib.h files for each architecture in different folders. The point is that they are not found by the source builder, i.e. none of the folders is present in the include path

I just went through using the “TEMS Source Builder” and once I installed all the dependencies it worked just fine. I would check to see if you have “zlib1g-dev” installed as that has zlib.h.

Subject: RTEMS Source Build error

I'm trying to use the RTEMS Source builder for building the tool package for SPARC and ARM architectures. In both cases I get the same error:

../../gcc-6.3.0/gcc/lto-compress.c:34:18: fatal error: zlib.h: No such file or directory
 #include <zlib.h>

the sb-check reports that "RTEMS Source Builder environment is ok"

I'm using Linux Mint 17.2 with VirtualBox on Windows10 machine

Any help is highly appreciated

Best Regards
