* Create <tuple>/lib -> <sysroot>/lib symlink before installing cross gccGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-07-271-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This commit solves bug #1051. The problem in this bug in that WebKit compiles a sample C program, which uses WebKit. As WebKit is written in C++, even though the program it built with CROSS-gcc, it must be linked with libstdc++. However, CROSS-gcc can't find the libstdc++ has it's hidden inside <sysroot>/<tuple>/lib. Therefore, this commit creates a symbolic link <sysroot>/<tuple>/lib -> <sysroot>/lib before running the CROSS-gcc installation. While this may look like a hack, this is the solution used by both Crosstool-NG and OpenWRT. Moreover, with this symbolic link in place, I think bug #1741 may also be solved. The problem in this bug is that the linker tries to link against /lib/libc.so.0. This is due to the fact that the linker finds a libc.so script file in the original toolchain location and not inside the copy of the toolchain sysroot in $(STAGING_DIR). As the script file is found outside of the current toolchain sysroot, ld considers the script has non-sysrooted, and therefore doesn't prefix all paths found in the script file (such as /lib/libc.so.0) with the sysroot path, leading to the failure. So, in details, this commit : * Adds a BR2_ARCH_IS_64 invisible config knob that is used to know if the arch is a 64 bits architecture or not. * Creates the <sysroot>/<tuple>/lib -> <sysroot>/lib symbolic link, and the <sysroot>/<tuple>/lib64 -> <sysroot>/lib64 symbolic link if needed. * Fixes the external toolchain sysroot detection code so that the 'sed' replacement is done *after* the readlink -f evaluation. I have tested this by building ARM, x86 and x86_64 toolchains with Buildroot, and then use these toolchains as external toolchains to build a full X.org/Gtk/WebKit/Midori stack. I have also done a complete ARM Buildroot internal toolchain build with the same full X.org/Gtk/WebKit/Midori stack. Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

* external-toolchain: adjust tests on TARGET_CC and TARGET_CXXGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-07-071-7/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Following the changes to TARGET_CC/TARGET_CXX to include the --sysroot option, these variables not only contain the path to the compiler, but also the --sysroot option. For that reason, we cannot anymore just use "test -x" to test for the compiler presence. Instead, we see if $(TARGET_CC) -v and $(TARGET_CXX) -v return a zero status. Moreover, --sysroot now needs to be filtered out of $(TARGET_CC) and not $(TARGET_CFLAGS) when asking the toolchain for its original sysroot and arch sysroot.

* external-toolchain: hardcode the destination directory for a libraryGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-07-061-13/+17
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Until now, the function copy_toolchain_lib_root was copying a given library to the target filesystem by assuming that it should be at the same place it was in the toolchain sysroot. However, with Buildroot hiding libstdc++ in /usr/<target-name>/lib(64), this isn't correct, and it is probably safer not to rely on the toolchain organization anyway. Therefore : * Instead of having a single EXTERNAL_LIBS variable, we now have LIB_EXTERNAL_LIBS and USR_LIB_EXTERNAL_LIBS, which respectively list the libraries that should be copied to /lib and /usr/lib. As of today, only libstdc++ is part of the second list. * The copy_toolchain_lib_root takes another argument, which is the destination directory of the library, relative to $(TARGET_DIR) Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>

* ext-toolchain: Fix ARCH_SYSROOT detectionGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-07-061-9/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | For the detection of the ARCH_SYSROOT_DIR (which contains the C library variant specific to the compiler flags), we used to pass only the -march argument instead of the full TARGET_CFLAGS. This was done because TARGET_CFLAGS contains --sysroot, and we don't want to tell here the compiler which sysroot to use, because we're specifically asking the compiler where the *normal* arch sysroot directory is. Unfortunately, there are some multilib variants that aren't decided only based on -march, but also on -msoft-float or other compiler flags. Therefore, we take the opposite approach: pass the full TARGET_CFLAGS, from which we have stripped the --sysroot option. For example, this allows a PowerPC CodeSourcery toolchain, on which we're using the soft-float multilib variant, to work properly as an external toolchain.

* external-toolchain: Support for multilib toolchainsGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-04-171-11/+79

For example, the ARM Codesourcery toolchain provides base libraries for ARMv5 (default), ARMv4t and Thumb2. Depending on the -march= argument passed to gcc, the sysroot used by the compiler is therefore different. This means that the sysroot location in CROSS-gcc -v cannot be used. Instead, we must use CROSS-gcc -print-sysroot when available and fall back to the old way if unavailable. Moreover, we cannot simply copy the full sysroot as we used to do, because the sysroot organization of multilib toolchain is more complicated. In Codesourcery toolchains, we have : / etc -- for ARMv5 lib -- for ARMv5 sbin -- for ARMv5 usr -- for ARMv5 (includes headers) armv4t etc -- for ARMv4t lib -- for ARMv4t sbin -- for ARMv4t usr -- for ARMv4t (no headers!) thumb2 etc -- for Thumb2 lib -- for Thumb2 sbin -- for Thumb2 usr -- for Thumb2 (no headers!) So we have the default ARMv5 architecture variant that is installed in the main directory, and we have subdirectories for the ARMv4t and Thumb2 architecture variants. Copying the full sysroot to the staging directory doesn't work. All our packages are based on the fact that they should install libraries in staging/usr/lib. But if ARMv4t is used, the compiler would only look in staging/armv4t/usr/lib for libraries (even when overriding the sysroot with the --sysroot option, the multilib compiler suffixes the sysroot directory with the architecture variant if it matches a recognized one). Therefore, we have to copy only the sysroot that we are interested in. This is rendered a little bit complicated by the fact that the armv4t and thumb2 sysroot do not contain the headers since they are shared with the armv5 sysroot. So, this patch : * Modifies how we compute SYSROOT_DIR in order to use -print-sysroot if it exists. SYSROOT_DIR contains the location of the main sysroot directory, i.e the sysroot for the default architecture variant. * Defines ARCH_SUBDIR as the subdirectory in the main sysroot for the currently selected architecture variant (in our case, it can be ".", "armv4t" or "thumb2"). ARCH_SYSROOT_DIR is defined as the full path to the sysroot of the currently selected architecture variant. * Modifies copy_toolchain_lib_root (which copies a library to the target/ directory) so that libraries are taken from ARCH_SYSROOT_DIR instead of SYSROOT_DIR. This ensures that libraries for the correct architecture variant are properly copied to the target. * Modifies copy_toolchain_sysroot (which copies the sysroot to the staging/ directory), so that it copies the contents of ARCH_SYSROOT_DIR, and if needed, adds the headers from the main sysroot directory and a symbolic link (armv4t -> . or thumb2 -> .) to make the compiler believe that its sysroot is really in armv4t/ or thumb2/.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | The copy_toolchain_lib_root function was making the assumption that all libraries were stored inside the /lib directory of the sysroot directory.

The only thing that needs to be customized is the set of libraries that must be compiled to the target.

Then, depending on that selection, the configuration system will choose a sane default value for the library files list. The other advantage of having a uClibc/glibc choice is that in the future, we'll be able to add checks verifying that the external toolchain configuration matches the features selected in Buildroot (in terms of IPv6, RPC, locales or large file support).

As an improvement, we could guess these values automatically: - for BR2_LARGEFILE, look at the value of __UCLIBC_HAS_LFS__ in bits/uClibc_config.h in the libc headers directory. - for BR2_INET_RPC, look at the value of __UCLIBC_HAS_RPC__ in the same file - for BR2_INET_IPV6, look at the value of __UCLIBC_HAS_IPV6__ in the same file - for BR2_SOFT_FLOAT, look at the output of $(CC) -v 2>&1 | grep -- "--with-float=soft" But I'm not sure how this would be possible, since these values are used at configuration-time by other configuration options, not only at build time.
