#22055 new defect

You can't get the firmware on ubuntu 14.04

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: highest Milestone:
Component: toolchain Version: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Keywords: Cc:


I'm trying to build the firmware on ubuntu 14.04.
I do:

git clone git://
cd ./openwrt
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a

Displays an error:
Build dependency: Please install ncurses. (Missing or ncurses.h)
Build dependency: Please install zlib. (Missing or zlib.h)
Build dependency: Please install the openssl library (with development headers)

But in Synaptic Manager I see install:
version: 5.9+20140118-1ubuntu1

Please help to build the firmware, I don't know what to do in such a case, thanks in advance !!!

Likely you are missing the development versions:

   sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev
