Brick [SOLVED] Build Problems --defsym:2: undefined symbol `obj_ipxecustom008'
Hey, folks. I hardly ever compile stuff from source. I'd appreciate any advice. Compiling on Parabola GNU/Linux-libre

src/config/general.h is untouched from the git clone

Versions:
gcc = 8.2.1 20181127
binutils = 2.31.1-4
make = 4.2.1
perl = 5.28.1
xz utils = 5.2.4
liblzma = 5.2.4
mtools = 4.0.23
mkisofs (genisotools) = 1.1.11
syslinux = 6.03

Code:
[root@pxe000 src]# pwd
/root/dev/ipxe/src
[root@pxe000 src]# git status
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)

    script.ipxe

nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
[root@pxe000 src]# cat script.ipxe
#!ipxe

:init
dhcp || goto failure

set server_ipv4 192.168.215.16
chain http://${server_ipv4}/ipxe/current/x86/root.ipxe || goto failure


:failure
shell

[root@pxe000 src]# make bin/ipxecustom008.usb EMBED=script.ipxe
  [DEPS] image/embedded.c
  [BUILD] bin/embedded.o
  [AR] bin/blib.a

That is not a valid build target; there is no "ipxecustom008" driver. It looks as though you're trying to build an all-drivers image, in which case you want:

Code:
make bin/ipxe.usb EMBED=script.ipxe

You can find valid buildtargets at http://ipxe.org/appnote/buildtargets
There was a good response on IRC for you:

01:18 < ErRandir> Don't recognise that target ipxe000.usb. What kind of image are you trying to build?
01:20 < ErRandir> Normal build targets are listed at http://ipxe.org/appnote/buildtargets

Why are you using make bin/ipxecustom008.usb ?
Maybe what you want is make bin/ipxe.usb EMBED=script.ipxe

Read FAQ before first post!
Are relevant ipxe.org error urls and PCIIDs included?

Thanks, Michael. That's a simple mistake. I made the false assumption that I could rename the target file so that I wouldn't overwrite the stock .usb creation. Thanks for the clarrification!

Thanks for the IRC log. I really need to setup a tmux'd irssi server somewhere....
