[HOWTO] build eOS in old fashioned way with breakfast -- now with interactive script

these are last lines of my new failed attempt:

And below I report what I did at the very beginning.
This time I didn’t use your 161.sh file but I manually launched the commands you gave in the beginning of your post. Here they are:

The device sources are missing. Seems that not all sources from manifests are synced.

this won’t work, or do you have a github account ?

Where it that coming from ?? Why manifests from e-OS ?? I have send you an other link https://github.com/cm-3470/android_.repo_local_manifests

and I see no copy of the manifest into .repo/local_manifests

that’s the way 161.sh will start:

ich@mint:~/eOS$ ./161.sh
Ok, lets start building

I have one, but it’s not working now! It’is necessary for the build process? If yes, where should I add user and password for the login?

No, if you are ask for a github user name and password. Something is wrong. Normally the related source are not found. In your case, it was, because you have used the wrong manifests

I used this manifest for kminilte:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


that you just posted is the same I used :-), from the beginning.
I always pasted this your first command:
git clone https://github.com/cm-3470/android_.repo_local_manifests -b lineage-15.1 .repo/local_manifests

it incl. 3 or 4 manifests. I doN’t know if they are all needed, I have to check, but can’t do it now

they are 4 and when I execute your command they are all regularly downloaded

https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/os/android.git” is in your 161.sh I downloaded. Should I have perhaps replaced this quoted above with that you sent to me in a second moment? If so, I’m very sorry but don’t forget that I’m a newbie and that I’m learning step by step, mistake after mistake, and what is obvious for you, it is not for me :sweat_smile:
I really appreciate your help …

That are the main sources. If you want go step by step, use the howto (first post) after all about the scripts. There is a step by step tutorial, which you can go via terminal.

Already done without success. I’m sorry for the time you lost for me, harvey186, but I have to give up! unfortunately I haven’t catch the different phases of the build process so I can’t understand and tie the different parts of the code: without fully understand the process, I can’t correct my actions. I did several attempts, trying manually and/or using the 161.sh file, and I’m tired now. I don’t exclude a future new attempt but for now I leave…
Thank you so much anyway!

Have you seen this [UNOFFICIAL BUILD] Unofficial Pi/e/ Community Build for Samsung Galaxy S5 mini - kminilte (G800F/G800M/G800Y)

Hi, I’m trying to build with this method now on Debian LXQt, minimal installation.

The fisrt try has failed just after the repo has been synced because of a missing package. I will edit this post if there are more dependancies.

New dependancies to add in the run_once.sh script :

In the 161.sh script, “kein repo sync” should be “no repo sync”.

Ok, if all running on your debian I will add all

For the first two errors I was able to understand and fix the issue but for the third try I need help please.

I found this, looks like there is a solution but I don’t understand it.

By the way, why there isn’t openjdk-11-jdk in your run_once.sh script since it’s necessary to build Pie (according to the link to the LineageOS wiki you gave me in my topic) ? I installed it.

Edit : could it be related to the fact I changed the Region from France to United Kingdom just before building ? (In order to provide you logs in english)

You may be facing a LOCALE configuration problem.
See line #2857, and https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/perl-warning-setting-locale-failed-in-debian-ubuntu/
Don’t know if it’s the root cause, but cannot hurt :wink:

Ok thank you, that’s it then :slight_smile:

If it can help, In my building VM I have “en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8” activated in /etc/locale.gen
And here is the output of locale command :
