Ive struggled a bit arround getting the buildroot to sucessfully compile on my linux distribution because my gcc version is a little bit newer then the one that gets installed by default on an ubuntu system. So there are two options. You start hacking arround your main os and downgrade what not to get the buildroot running and hope that it will workout somehow or you simply setup yourself a Ubuntu vm with all the needed dependencies.
With this short Vagrant file you should be up and running in a breeze without having any headaches.
Create a Folder and put this
Vagrantfile into it.
After running the command
vagrant up in the folder a VirtualBox Ubuntu Bionic 64 VM should get created and you will be able to access your buildroot by sshing to the virtual machine by using the command
The article just got updated to move the source away from the shared folder, since i found out the hard way that it will give you a lot of compile errors otherwise.
