I have fixed the RSB scripts so the release source is referenced and I am now getting this message from QEMU:

This is not a GIT checkout but module content appears to
be missing. Do not use 'git archive' or GitHub download links
to acquire QEMU source archives. Non-GIT builds are only
supported with source archives linked from:


Developers working with GIT can use scripts/archive-source.sh
if they need to create valid source archives.

This means any build of qemu taken from git will fail as a release. The qemu4 build is qemu-4.1.0 so it may be simpler to move to using the release source than git. I do not think modeling the QEMU source release process in our release process is a good idea.

NOTE: Making the change will require some testing on Linux by Zynq and RISCV core developers before I branch.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

In 42b7e8a/rtems-source-builder:

devel/qemu4: Use release source tarball

Git cannot be used for a release as our release process does not
package the source in a manner qemu expects.

Closes #3976
