A README file within SDK recommends using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I have successfully managed to compile the same firmware on 20.04.5 version.

Ubuntu 18.04.6 is an old distribution, use a more recent one (a Fedora 37 will work fine).

And use tar -xozf ~/Downloads/RUT9_R_GPL_00.07.02.7.tar.gz -C RUT9_R_GPL_00.07.02.7 to avoid permission issues within the tree.

this is exactly my problem :)
by anonymous

pkg_run_script tries to run a script intended to be executed on the target system itself not by the build process. This is obviously a bug in the package.

I get it.

I really need the FW with embedded tinc package

What's your advice then?
by anonymous

Apply the following patch:

Use patch -p1 < tinc-Makefile.patch in the base folder.

Those formatting issues are new ...

It works!

Your advice is invaluable, thank you very muchsmiley
