Can't compile kernel 4.19.122 from git source

I’m trying to compile kernel but i always got errors with openssl. I installed libssl-dev but gives errors for openssl. i tryed to copy openssl directory to src tools directory but again it gives opensslconf.h not found error.
I have been compiled kernel before and there wasnt get any problem but this time these errors made me crazy.

HOSTCC scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.lex.o
HOSTCC scripts/extract-cert
HOSTLD scripts/dtc/dtc
In file included from ./tools/include/openssl/bio.h:13:0,
from scripts/extract-cert.c:21:
./tools/include/openssl/e_os2.h:13:34: fatal error: openssl/opensslconf.h: No such file or directory

include <openssl/opensslconf.h>


compilation terminated.
scripts/ recipe for target ‘scripts/extract-cert’ failed
make[1]: *** [scripts/extract-cert] Error 1

please help…

I already doing it like that and it gives this error. i did it before for older kernel because of adding can_bittiming driver need to be inside kernel for modules working. but th,s time gives errors. i dont know why…


Are compiling on the PI or is it a cross compile?

Thanks Tom.

I tryed both on virtual debian 64x pc it gives so much error i coudnt fix all of them then tryed on rbp3 and gave this error

What does your sources.list look like?

i dont make any change on rpi
here its:

deb stretch main contrib non-free

deb Index of /debian stretch-updates main contrib non-free

deb stretch/updates main contrib non-free

deb stretch main

How are you trying to build the kernel?

You should just run make rbp2 under kernel-osmc

here its step by step on root user

apt-get update
apt-get install build-essential git libncurses5-dev bc bison flex chrpath gawk texinfo libsdl1.2-dev whiptail diffstat cpio libssl-dev liblz4-tool
git clone

Im changing rbp2-000-add-kernel-config.patch for additional drivers

cd osmc/packages/kernel-osmc
make rbp2

but first time it gives openssl\bio.h missing
then i copied openssl folder to src/kernel-4.19.122/tools/include
but this time it gives configuration.h missing error

thas all…

Try purge the toolchain - it could be corrupted.

I will try now but i dont know how to purge can u explain it

or just need to do re-compile and install it?

btw i tried to compile it on virtoalbox debian x64 system and it gave

    CC journal.c
    CC revoke.o

Try build using the Buster branch and update sources to include the Buster line.

Then purge the toolchain packages and it should work.

installing buster now i wil try

You don’t need to install Buster. Just add the Buster repo for toolchains.

i know but if it need buster repos i think its better to use it

i tried to compile armv7-toolchain and got this error

I: Base system installed successfully.

You don’t need to compile it. It is available as a prebuilt.

no way i can find. i tryed debian jessie also buster and bullseye on vbox and 3 osmc build on rbp3 all of them giving same errors.

i think its about dependicies or about package needs

sam_nazarko which platform is you are using? i also trying in ubuntu 18 now. again it gives cert extract error :slightly_frowning_face:

i have rbp2-image-4.14.34-5-osmc that conpiled before. if i use it can i have any problem?
