Hi Shyamal,

Have you tried running the build script with the -h option, like so:

$ ./swift/utils/build-script -h

This will give you all of the options and intro to how to use the build script. I don’t use Ubuntu, so I can’t say why Swift won’t build on Ubuntu, but I was able to build it on Fedora 23 and now building it on ArchLinux.
