Sorry for such simple question but I am stuck for days. I want to build AOSP with qcom proprietary code but fail. Here is what I do:

1. download qcom proprietary code from, what I download is MSM8996.LA.2.0.1 distribution Post-CS

2. unzip the file, then run from LINUX/android folder

3. after AOSP code is downloaded, I run ./ msm8996

4. build fails after 1 minute with following error:

cp: cannot stat 'vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/Global/Regional/VietnamOpenMarket/system/audio/ringtones/*.mp3': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat 'vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/Global/Regional/VietnamOpenMarket/system/audio/ui/*.ogg': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat 'vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/Global/Regional/VietnamOpenMarket/system/boot/*.wav': No such file or directory
including ./vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/globalization/engine/ ...
including ./vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/globalization/vendor-IME/ ...
including ./vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/prebuilt/ ...
build/core/ *** vendor/qcom/proprietary/qrdplus/prebuilt/target/product/msm8996: MODULE.TARGET.DATA.evt-sniff.cfg already defined by vendor/qcom/proprietary/prebuilt_HY11/target/product/msm8996.
make: *** [build/core/ out/] Error 1
Are my steps wrong? If so what is the right procedure to build android with proprietary code?
Thanks for any help!

 Could you try to copy the vendor/qcom/proprietary/* manually from chipcode zip file to opensource path?
