*In some systems before to configure the SDK (make config) may be necessary to set bash as the default shell, this will be request by the system with the following message: bash is not your default shell, in this cases the following two commands must be entered:
$ sudo rm /bin/sh
  sudo ln -s /usr/bin/bash /bin/sh
*Now, in the configuration window go to File System Configuration->Select target's file system software and uncheck the package named gstd.
*In order to get an appropriate compilation of the SDK for OMAP-L138 Hawkboard, the following packages must be installed: libdbus-glib-1-dev and gperf.
$ sudo apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-dev gperf
*Furthermore, If the system used to compile the SDK has a newer version of libtool than the version used by the SDK the compilation process will fail and and the following error will be shown:
libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.2.6, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.6b.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6
libtool: and run autoconf again
to fix this, the file local.tools (located in <yourSDKlocation>/OMAPL138SDK880207/bsp/oscheck) must be edited, the last line must be commented as is shown in the following example:
Finally, go to the directory <yourSDKlocation>/OMAPL138SDK880207/proprietary/gst-dmai-plugins and run the following commands:
$quilt pop
Now, all should be ready to compile the SDK, then go to <yourSDKlocation>/OMAPL138SDK880207 and run:
