Building MTD Utils on the PC



The mkfs.ubifs utility requires zlib, lzo and uuid libraries

In Fedora install zlib-devel, lzo-devel, and libuuid-devel.
Old Fedora distributions (Fedora 11 and earlier) had the uuid library in the e2fsprogs-devel package.

In Debian install zlib1g-dev, liblzo2-dev and uuid-dev packages.


The mkfs.jffs2 utility requires the ACL and zlib libraries.

In Fedora, please, install the libacl-devel and zlib-devel packages.

In Debian, please, install the libacl1-dev and zlib1g-dev packages.

Debian  quick steps:

sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev liblzo2-dev uuid-dev libacl1-dev
