X230 heads & coreboot Build Fails

I ran into the same problem as Nitrokey Pro2 with Heads and followed the instructions to and added CONFIG_LIBREMKEY=y right after CONFIG_FBWHIPTAIL=y as explained here: X230 heads & coreboot - #3 by nitroalex

But when I build the file with this change I get the error:

The regular x230 built just fine and heads is running great (but without the libremkey module).

Thanks for any help :slight_smile:

Its fixed!

I discovered a file in the build folder called x230-hotp-verification, I built it with make BOARD=x230-hotp-verification and updated heads with the new coreboot.rom and it works!

For future visitors: we have a GitHub repo in which we publish our builds. Currently there is only a release candidate for the next version yet, but in future there will be all our release.


Let’s make that clearer in the build documentation, with the link to the actual CI builds as well if not done already.
