11 EDK - My Linux kernel will not compile. Why?


Keywords: DMA, Local, Link, LLDMA, TEMAC

When I try to compile my Linux kernel, I receive error messages similar to the following:

drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x60a80): In function `reset': undefined reference to `XLlDma_BdRingGetCoalesce'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x60a90):xlltemac_main.c: undefined reference to `XLlDma_BdRingGetCoalesce'

The Linux kernel will not compile if standalone driver version lldma_v1_00_b and later are used for the MontaVista Linux 4.0.1 and WindRiver Linux 1.3/2.0 kernels. This is only valid for systems that have LL_TEMAC.

The solution for this problem is to copy the makefile in:




This makefile should be copied after generating the Linux Libraries.

This problem has been fixed in EDK 11.4, available at:
