How to add and build libmbim-1.18.0 in Hikey960 android AOSP source?


#1

I have a Hikey960 embedded board.

I would like to using MBIM(mbimcli) I/F on Hikey960 board for data connection with Modem module.
I need to add and build “mbimcli” execution program for control MBIM I/F.

libmbim-1.18.0 is released as below link.

For build libmbim-1.18.0.tar.xz in AOSP android-9.0.0 source,
it provides “Makefile.am” and “Makefile.in” audomake script.

But Android AOSP Hikey960(android-9.0.0) is using Android.bp for soong build.

<Question?>
How to add and build “libmbim-1.18.0.tar.xz” in android AOSP android-9.0.0 source?
I would like to use the mbimcli command in the adb shell on Hikey960 device.

Please, help and share a way to build Makefile.am on AOSP android-9.0.0 source.

Thank you.

You really have two options;

  1. Write an android makefile for it,
  2. Cross compile it statically and copy in the compiled binaries.

Both may not be trivial.

Thank you for your response.

According to the second way your recommends…

Q1. Is there a way to modify configure for Linux open source build hikey960?
How do I modify Linux open source configure to compile executable shell program on Hikey960 ARM device?
How to compile Linux open source(Makefile.am) for specific ARM targets in ubuntu?

Q2. What is the arm cross compiler used for building hikey960?
If I build an AOSP source from ubuntu 14.04, it is built for arm64/armv8-a/cortex-a73 as shown below.
I am not sure what arm compiler is built when building the hikey960 AOSP.
Can I find out what arm compiler is used when building hikey960 AOSP?

FYI, I snipped libmbim-1.18.0.tar.xz build logs in ubuntu system.

If I try to build a Linux open source libmbim(libmbim-1.18.0.tar.xz) in ubuntu,
it seems that make will be created as an executable shell program that for ubuntu system using gcc compiler.
It just run .configure and make in ubuntu 14.04, it does not cross-compiling for Hikey960.
