Subject: samples don't build on v4.18
Date: Tue, 14 Aug 2018 18:20:54 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When building BPF samples on v4.18, I get the following errors:

$ cd samples/bpf/
$ make

Auto-detecting system features:
...                        libelf: [ OFF ]
...                           bpf: [ OFF ]

No libelf found
Makefile:213: recipe for target 'elfdep' failed

I bissected it down to commit 5f9380572b4bb24f60cd492b1

    samples: bpf: compile and link against full libbpf

Checking out a kernel before this commit makes the samples build. Also I do
have libelf on my system.

Any thoughts on this issue?

thank you,

- Joel
