  • Hi Semi,

    Thanks for reporting this problem. The makefile for AM437x PDK 1.0.17 seems broken for Windows. The problem happened when it tried to build the starterware from the top level makefile. Do you have a Linux PC? I just verified that the makefile works fine on Linux. If you only have Windows PC, there is a workaround:

    1. Remove all non-buildinfra related build targets from pdk_am437x_1_0_17/packages/makefile. I attached a modified makefile for your reference.8130.makefile

    2. Rerun gmake and it should be able to finish the build without errors.

    3. Build the starterware separately:

    C:\ti\pdk_am437x_1_0_17\packages>cd ti\starterware
    C:\ti\pdk_am437x_1_0_17\packages\ti\starterware>gmake help
    C:\ti\pdk_am437x_1_0_17\packages\ti\starterware>gmake all PLATFORM=am43xx-evm SOC=am437x

    This should build the PDK components equivalently.
