* Config.in: Add a menu around BR2_EXTERNAL configuration optionsGravatar Peter Korsgaard2013-12-081-0/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To make it clear to the user that these options are external to Buildroot and no support is provided by the Buildroot community. With this, there's no need to recommend people to their options inside a menu, so remove that from the documentation. Kconfig nicely allows us to hide the menu completely if BR2_EXTERNAL isn't used, so make use of that to not confuse people. It would be nice if we could add some help text to explain the BR2_EXTERNAL stuff as well, but that isn't supported on menus :/ Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com>
* core: allow external Config.in/makefile code to be integratedGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-12-081-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This commit allows the BR2_EXTERNAL directory to contain Config.in and Makefile code, which gets integrated into the Buildroot build logic: - Buildroot automatically includes the $BR2_EXTERNAL/Config.in in the top-level configuration menu. - Buildroot automatically includes the BR2_EXTERNAL/external.mk in the build logic, so it can for example be used to include other .mk files that define package recipes. This is typically intended to be used to create target packages in the BR2_EXTERNAL directory, but can also be used for bootloaders, host packages, or other custom make logic. We also add a dummy Config.in file in support/dummy-external/ to ensure that the source "$BR2_EXTERNAL/Config.in" line will point to an existing file even when BR2_EXTERNAL is not used by the user.

* core: introduce the BR2_EXTERNAL variableGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-12-081-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This commit introduces the BR2_EXTERNAL environment variable, which will allow to keep Buildroot customization (board-specific configuration files or root filesystem overlays, package Config.in and makefiles, as well as defconfigs) outside of the Buildroot tree. This commit only introduces the variable itself, and ensures that it is available within Config.in options. This allows us to use $BR2_EXTERNAL in a 'source' statement in Config.in. Following patches extend the usage of BR2_EXTERNAL to other areas (packages and defconfigs). In details, this commit: * Introduces the BR2_EXTERNAL Kconfig option. This option has no prompt, and is therefore not visible to the user and also not stored in the .config file. It is automatically set to the value of the BR2_EXTERNAL environment variable. The only purpose of this BR2_EXTERNAL Kconfig option is to allow $BR2_EXTERNAL to be properly expanded when used inside Kconfig source statements. * Calculates the BR2_EXTERNAL value to use. If passed on the command line, then this value is taken in priority, and saved to a .br-external hidden file in the output directory. If not passed on the command line, then we read the .br-external file from the output directory. This allows the user to not pass the BR2_EXTERNAL value at each make invocation. If no BR2_EXTERNAL value is passed, we define it to support/dummy-external, so that the kconfig code finds an existing $(BR2_EXTERNAL)/package/Config.in file to include. * Passes the BR2_EXTERNAL into the *config environment, so that its value is found when parsing/evaluating Config.in files and .config values.

* core: add BR2_HOSTARCH_NEEDS_IA32_COMPILER optionGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-12-011-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some bootloaders (such as Grub) need to be built for x86 (i.e IA32) even if the target architecture is x86-64. However, when the target architecture is x86-64, the cross-compiler generated by Buildroot is not able to generate 32 bits code. To solve this, we will rely on the host compiler being a x86 + x86-64 compiler. Therefore, this commit introduces the BR2_HOSTARCH_NEEDS_IA32_COMPILER option, which tells the dependency checking logic to verify that the host compiler is indeed capable of building x86 32 bits code.

* toolchain: refactor Stack Smashing Protection supportGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-09-151-0/+17
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This commit refactors how Stack Smashing Protection support is handled in Buildroot: *) It turns the BR2_TOOLCHAIN_BUILDROOT_USE_SSP option into an option that only enables the SSP support in uClibc, when using the internal toolchain backend. *) It adds an hidden BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_SSP option that gets enabled when the toolchain has SSP support. Here we have the usual dance: glibc/eglibc in internal/external backend always select this option, in the case of uClibc/internal, it gets selected when BR2_TOOLCHAIN_BUILDROOT_USE_SSP is enabled, in the case of uClibc/external, there is a new configuration option that the user must select (or not) depending on whether the toolchain has SSP support. *) It adds a new options BR2_ENABLE_SSP in the "Build options" menu, to enable the usage of SSP support, by adding -fstack-protector-all to the CFLAGS.

* Make savedefconfig save to a configured file.Gravatar Arnout Vandecappelle (Essensium/Mind)2013-02-051-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Store BR2_DEFCONFIG in .config, and use it to update the original input defconfig file after updating the configuration. When a config is created by using the BR2_DEFCONFIG=... option, this is saved in the .config file; later runs of savedefconfig will update that same location. It is also possible to configure this place in the interactive configuration. The BR2_DEFCONFIG value itself is not saved into the generated defconfig, since Kconfig considers it at its default. This is intentional, to avoid hard-coding an absolute path in the defconfig. It will anyway be set again when the defconfig is used with the 'make BR2_DEFCONFIG=... defconfig' command. As a side-effect of this change, the *config options have been moved out of the BR2_HAVE_DOT_CONFIG condition. This doesn't make any functional difference, because the .config is still not read for the *config targets. However, the defconfig and savedefconfig targets do need to include .config now, which makes them slightly slower.

* Infrastructure to warn the user about missing 32 bits librariesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-061-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Many users trying to use external toolchains on x86-64 machines get a very confusing message: "Can't execute cross-compiler" They get this message because they forgot to install the 32 bits compatibility libraries that are needed to run binaries compiled for x86 on x86-64 machines. Since this is the case for both external toolchains and certain binary-only tools like SAM-BA, we add a new Kconfig option BR2_HOSTARCH_NEEDS_IA32_LIBS, that packages must select if they need the 32 bits compatibility libraries. When this option is enabled, dependencies.sh checks that the 32 bits dynamic library loader is present on the system, and if not, it stops and shows an error. The path and name of the 32 bits dynamic loader is hardcoded because it is very unlikely to change, as it would break the ABI for all binaries. Also, it is worth noting that the check will be done even if we're running on a 32 bits machine. This is harmless, as 32 bits machines necessarily have the 32 bits dynamic loader installed, so the error will never show up in this case.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | As discussed during the ELCE 2012 Buildroot Developers Meeting, we no longer want to support the possibility of building a toolchain for the target. None of the core developers have any use for this, it has been known to be broken or cause problems for a long time without anyone providing fixes for it. In addition to this, Buildroot is inherently a cross-compilation tool, so the usage of a native toolchain on the target is not really useful. Many newcomers are tempted to use this possibility even though it is clearly not the intended usage of Buildroot.

* ccache: allow dynamic selection of cache directoryGravatar Thomas De Schampheleire2012-05-181-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The existing ccache infrastructure sets the cache directory hardcoded in the ccache binary. As this directory was set to ~/.buildroot-ccache, the cache is not necessarily local (e.g. in corporate environments the home directories may be mounted over NFS.) Previous versions of buildroot did allow to set the cache directory, but this was also hardcoded (so you had to rebuild ccache to change it), plus that support was removed. See http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2011-July/044511.html for a discussion on this. This patch modifies ccache to respect a new shell variable (exported from the Makefile, based on a configuration option) instead of CCACHE_DIR.

* Config.in: Show BR version in titleGravatar Peter Korsgaard2011-02-021-1/+1
| | | | | | | Kconfig nowadays uses the mainmenu as the title, so add the version info here, similar to how it is done in the Linux kernel. Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>

* Re-add target/generic/Config.in options to menuconfigGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-161-0/+2
| | | | | | | | The options to customize the hostname, the banner and the serial port configuration are now inside a menu named 'System configuration'. Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
* Stop referencing the crazy target/device stuffGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-161-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | We don't need Config.in and Makefile in target/device: defconfig files are sufficient to describe the specificities of a board (architecture, compilation flags, bootloader and kernel details, etc.). However, a placeholder such as target/device will be kept in order to host things such as kernel configuration files or various board-specific patches.

* Move Config.in.mirrors out of target/deviceGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-151-1/+68
| | | | | | | | | Having Config.in.mirrors (which also to select various download sites) inside target/device sounds strange. This commit moves the contents of Config.in.mirrors directly into the main Config.in file.

* ccache: rework ccache managementGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-081-0/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | * ccache is now a normal package (both for the host and the target). * ccache option is now part of the "Build options" menu. It will automatically build ccache for the host before building anything, and will use it to cache builds for both host compilations and target compilations. * bump ccache to 3.1.3 Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
* Remove support for shared configuration cacheGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-11-051-14/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The configuration cache shared between packages, while being in principle a nice idea to speed-up the configuration of packages by avoiding repetitive identical checks, turned out to be unreliable due to the subtle differences between similar but not identical checks in different packages. After spending some time trying to fix those, we concluded that supporting the shared configuration cache is definitely too hard and too unreliable, and that we'd better get rid of it altogether. This patch therefore removes the shared configuration cache infrastructure and usage.

* Config.in: wget: default to 3 retriesGravatar Peter Korsgaard2010-11-041-1/+1
| | | | | | | Wget's builtin default of 20 retries before the backup site is used is pretty excessive when a server is down. Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>

| | | | | | | | | This re-instates writing the version string in .config headers, and no longer provides it as a kconfig symbol in .config (it is now a variable in the Makefile, and in the environment).

| | | | | | | | | It's not really necessary to differenciate the commands for checking out or updating a repository. Only the path to the binary and eventual top-level flags are useful to configure.
