Building Pynq hangs (make-mod-scripts)

After a number of evenings letting pynq building boards, and after going through hurdles like the obnoxious bug in Vivado 2020 that crashes if the date goes past 2020, I had it running yesterday overnight and stopped at this task:

make-mod-scripts-1.0-r0 do_configure

So this morning, after 10 h there I thought it was sensible to stop it.
I restarted make, defying Einstein’s quote of “insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result” and is now 2 h stuck at the same point.

The only difference is that yesterday it was task 2284 out of 2300, today is 1974 out of 2300

Is this a known problem? (make-mod-scripts hanging)

My VM has no problem of speed or RAM, runs 4 cores and has 300 GB hd, 32 GB RAM. Host machine is a i7 10th gen quite powerful.


Which location you are placing these aka share directory or the Ubuntu home directory?
Meanwhile, did your network drop due to WIFI?

Good questions.
No, no WiFi problems. Anyways where it hangs is not fetching any repo or needing internet.
I run make in the pynq/sdbuild folder. in the ubuntu home, nothing network shared

Ah, man, that was it. I changed the date back to 2022 and enabled time sync from the internet.
As I said, I had it disabled and the VM living in 2020 for the aforementioned bug in Vivado 2020.
Now it passed that point at least
