Using remoteBuild to build on Linux (Beagleboard-XM/Angstrom target)

Hi all,
I have a problem with remoteBuild and building my Simulink model on my Beagleboard-XM running the Angstrom Linux distribution.
My problem is that once I call remoteBuild(), MATLAB returns the following error:
remoteBuild(s.buildInfo, '/home/root', '', 'root', '', 'C:\Program Files\PuTTY')
### Adding sources to archive
### Adding include files to archive
### Adding libraries to archive
### Creating remote project directory
### Creating file archive
### Copying archive to remote target
### Extracting archive on remote target
### Building executable on remote target
make: Entering directory `/home/root/ertModel_eclipseide'
cc -o .o
cc: no input files
make: *** [.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/root/ertModel_eclipseide'
??? Error using ==>
remoteBuild>executeRemoteCommand at 198
Error executing SSH command: make: Entering
directory `/home/root/ertModel_eclipseide'
cc -o .o
cc: no input files
make: *** [.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory
Error in ==> remoteBuild at 123 executeRemoteCommand(cmd, true);
I opened the remoteBuild *.m file and read the command being sent to the target as the following:
make -C /home/root/ertModel_eclipseide -f build
which is received by the target.
I think it has something to do with the makefile but I'm not sure what to do.
Has anyone come across this problem too?
p.s. I also have the full gcc toolchain installed on the target, so I don't think that's the problem either.

Perhaps you could look into the generated makefile and see how the "cc" commands are specified, and whether there could be cause for error?

Hi Frazer,
I had same problem. I was using kernel 2.6.31.But Mathworks supports only to Kernel 2.6.29.Try that one.

You might take a look at the new Simulink support for BeagleBoard hardware. Keep in mind that installing this support automatically installs a customized version of Ubuntu on the BeagleBoard.
