Yes.  This is a known issue.


If you are interested, we could use the help fixing this issue.

Subject: [edk2-devel] edk2-libc Python Build issue




I am trying to build the Python environment for UEFI as per Py368ReadMe.txt.

I am doing this on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS with GCC5 for X64, all instructions seem to be meant for windows and MSFT.

I was able to build everything else and verify that it works, so I don't see why this should be an issue, but I am running into several issues.


Initial error is missing Python.h.

The path to AppPkg/Applications/Python/Python-3.6.8/Include seems to be missing from the build command, I was able to fix that by modifying Python368.inf and under BuildOptions, adding: 

GCC:*_*_*_CC_FLAGS = -I$(WORKSPACE)/AppPkg/Applications/Python/Python-3.6.8/Include

However this then results in other errors such as unused functions - fixed with -Wno-unused-functions added to the same line above, and then finally redfinitions.


Is the build process of Python 3.6.8 documented anywhere that might help me out, or if someone could point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you
