This document describes how to compile U-Boot for linux-sunxi devices


  • crossdev toolchain for target (for example, armv7a-unknown-linux-gnueabihf is used for cubietruck)
  • python:2.7 python swig dev-python/pip dev-python/setuptools bc dev-python/python-distutils-extra dtc git

U-Boot compilation

Prepare working environment:

user $cd u-boot-sunxi
user $export CROSS_COMPILE="armv7a-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-"
user $virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.7 venv
user $source venv/bin/activate

Remove line from scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.lex.c

FILE scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.ldtc-lexer.l
YYLTYPE yyloc;


user $make Cubietruck_config
user $make clean
user $make all

U-Boot installation

dd u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin into SD card you're going to be using for your machine

root #dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024 seek=8
