Istio proxy build fail 【v1.4】

I am customize istio proxy (, from 1.0 to 1.4.
Now, for build 1.4, always fail.
So, could you help me to resolve 1.4 build issue?

【Note】For each build enviroment set up, from 1.0, 1.1, 1.3, always cost me a lot of time to make it done.

Is there any docs about istio proxy make process / dependency?
I suggest to make istio proxy build process easier, no matter improve document or create specific istio container (process)?

Step 1 : Create container for build:

docker pull envoyproxy/envoy-build
docker run --name en -it --cpus="7" envoyproxy/envoy-build bash

Step 2 : Build in container:

Nobody answer me. I am sad.
However, I fix it out: :slight_smile:
Way I: More official
Step 1: Checkout the exact code of Istio-proxy (tag: 1.4.6)
Step 2: Get build image from …\istioproxy1.4.bazelrc , pull the image
A bit strange: -ubuntu is not showed in code at all. However, we need add it manually.
docker pull envoyproxy/envoy-build-ubuntu@sha256:3ca8acc35fdb57ab26e1bb5f9488f37095f45acd77a12602510410dbefa00b58
Step 3: Run and enter container
docker run -it --name hi envoyproxy/envoy-build-ubuntu@sha256:3ca8acc35fdb57ab26e1bb5f9488f37095f45acd77a12602510410dbefa00b58
Step 4: pull the code and go to 1.4.6 tag
git clone
git tag -l
git checkout 1.4.6
Step 5: Run “make lint” (Why need this? Refer
Step 6: Add “/root/clang/bin” in path (Why need this? Refer to scripts\ )
vi .bashra
#Add export PATH="$PATH:/root/clang/bin"
source .bashrc
Step 7: Run “make build”
