Newbie Getting Started

I cloned the 2019.10 version of RIOT OS to my linux box (Pop OS - an Ubuntu 18.04 variant) and attempted the quickest getting started described in the docs here:

Unfortunately, it borks on “make all” with the following:

/usr/include/stdio.h:27:10: fatal error: bits/libc-header-start.h: No such file or directory

A quick Stack Overflow/Google search results in many different reasons for this error. Did I miss a dependency build/install step somewhere? Does there need to be an environment variable set to build the examples/default example for the native platform?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Patrick, welcome to RIOT!

for Ubuntu-based distros you could try installing the gcc-multilib package (sudo apt install gcc-multilib). See 1 for reference.
