2010-05-15debug/ltrace: fix LDFLAGS for libsupc++ and libibertyYann E. MORIN"1-0/+16
The configure script correctly detects libsupc++ and libiberty, but in the linker stage it tries to link in both libraries without taking care of the test result. Signed-off-by: Robert Schwebel <> [ rework patch depth to be -p1] Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-05-18libc/glibc: fix as/ld checks against recent binutilsYann E. MORIN"1-12/+12
Backported from: Thanks to Khem RAJ for pointing to this fix:
2010-05-22test-suite: apply cleanup passYann E. MORIN"5-69/+72
Remove all non-modifiable items (target tuple, gcc version, toolchain path...) Makefile syntax ( use $(...) instead of ${...} ) Update doc Space-damage cleanups
2010-05-19test-suite: Added new test suite feature (experimental)Martin Lund9-0/+279
This patch adds support for installing the gcc test suite. A helper Makefile is provided for building and running the gcc tests. The default configuration runs all gcc tests and requires automatic ssh/scp login access to a networked target board. See README for more details. Note: Current feature is tested with the powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu sample but it should work with others as well. Signed-off-by: Martin Lund <>
2010-05-22scripts/wrapper.c: Under MacOS set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATHTitus von Boxberg1-2/+7
Depending on (predefined) macro __APPLE__, use DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH instead of LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
2010-05-22docs/overview.txt: Provide short mercurial HOWTOTitus von Boxberg1-29/+183
The usage of hg mq is imho not very well documented. Give a short intro for the most important use cases for contributions to ct-ng. Slightly rewrote the explanations for the introductory message.
2010-05-17ct-ng: Add ability to configure and use some GNU toolsTitus von Boxberg2-0/+14
Make the paths to libtool, objcopy, objdump, readelf, patch configurable.
2010-05-22scripts/build/ Always use binary wrapper under BSD/MacOSTitus von Boxberg1-0/+7
The shell wrapper script uses a nonportable call to readlink. Thus, always use the binary wrapper under BSD/MacOS. Use 'case' instead of 'if'.
2010-05-17scripts/ Add a comment about readlink not being portable.Titus von Boxberg1-0/+5
Documented that the call to readlink will not work on BSD systems.
2010-05-17configure: make call to readlink portable to non-GNU (BSD) systemsTitus von Boxberg1-1/+1
The argument '-e' for readlink is a GNU extension. In setting the variable 'where' the argument '-e' is not necessary, thus eliminated.
2010-05-19scripts/ On MacOS/BSD use the output of CT_DoConfigGuess ↵Titus von Boxberg1-3/+3
for CT_BUILD. On 64bit MacOS `gcc -dumpmachine` gives i686 for the host machine. This conflicts with the expectations of some following configure scripts that a 64bit x86 is given as x86_64; i686 is understood as a 32 bit machine. config.guess sets the host machine in CT_BUILD correctly. As suggested by Khem RAJ on the ML, always use config.guess.
2010-05-17configure: Do not require stat to be of GNU coreutilsTitus von Boxberg1-1/+1
calls to stat have been made portable, thus it is not necessary that the GNU version is present on the user's system.
2010-05-19scripts/functions: Use stat correctly on non-GNU (BSD/Darwin) systems.Titus von Boxberg1-1/+11
Call to get the directory mode depending on $CT_SYS_OS CT_SYS_OS has changed on Linuxsystem, it only gets the kernel name "Linux", and not the system name, 'GNU/'.
2010-05-19build/ Replace nonportable call to statTitus von Boxberg1-1/+1
The call to stat to find out if a file is a symlink works only on GNU systems, and the replacing portable call to readlink is also shorter and more concise code. Apply simpler test, after discussion with author and Arnaud LACOMBE on the ML. suppress failure message from uname -oTitus von Boxberg1-2/+1
On non-GNU systems (BSD/MacOS) there is no uname -o. Suppress the failure message on these systems in the call to set CT_SYS_OS (uname -s actually sets this variable). remove 'uname -o' altogether.

2010-04-29debug/gdb: install tic in the buildtools directoryYann E. MORIN"1-1/+1
'tic' is a build tool, its place is in the buildtools directory, not in the toolchain's bin directory.
2010-04-29debug/gdb: be less verbose during the ncurses buildYann E. MORIN"1-12/+1
2010-04-28scripts: don't set LD_PRELOAD with static companion librariesYann E. MORIN"1-4/+3
When cpmpanion libraries are built statically, it is useless to set LD_PRELOAD. Worse, it might break the build in some corner cases.
2010-04-28docs: update the section about the wrapperYann E. MORIN"1-8/+20
The wrapper is no longer needed when building non-shared companion libraries. Document that.

2010-04-21libc/newlib: don't do // downloadsYann E. MORIN"1-0/+9
The newlib FTP site does not like // downloads, and quickly blocks the IP from the downloader. Override the number of chunks when downloading newlib.
2010-04-21libc/glibc: fix kernel version checkYann E. MORIN"1-1/+3
Since we log the test strings, it is no longer possible to call the CT_Test* functions from sub-functions that print results to their stdout.
2010-04-20scripts: also prepare include symlink to sysroot/includeYann E. MORIN"1-2/+5
2010-04-19scripts: check g++ only for hostYann E. MORIN"1-1/+5
g++ is only needed when building additonal libs on the HOST, so check wheter g++ is available for the HOST compiler only Signed-off-by: Bart vdr. Meulen <> [Yann E. MORIN: fix space damage] Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-04-09cc/gcc: use proper host compiler for canadian bare-metalRemy Bohmer1-1/+13
While compiling a canadian toolchain for host=mingw32, build=linux, target=m68k-elf the build fails because in this step of the gcc build the Host compiler is used in this stage with the build-flags for the build system. This results in an error where the header <sys/wait.h> cannot be found. This problem happens at least in the GCC-4.3.x and GCC-4.4.x range. This is solved by passing the proper compilers on the Make cmd-line Signed-off-by: Remy Bohmer <>
2010-04-20cc/gcc: allow building a canadian bare-metal compilerBart vdr. Meulen1-19/+10
Previous addition of the canadian cross compiler did not allow to build a baremetal only variant, no reason why this is not allowed Signed-off-by: Bart vdr. Meulen <>
2010-04-20cc/gcc: fix cc symlink when executables have an extensionYann E. MORIN"1-2/+8
When building a cross-compiler for a host which depends on file extensions the symlink for cc was not installed correctly Signed-off-by: Bart vdr. Meulen <> [Yann E. MORIN: style fixes, enhancements, code prettying] Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-04-15cc/gcc: add 4.5.0Yann E. MORIN"1-0/+7
2010-04-15cc/gcc: add support for 4.5.0 or later versionsYann E. MORIN"3-1/+23
starting with 4.5.0, gcc requires libelf.
2010-04-15complibs/libelf: remove old versionsYann E. MORIN"1-11/+0
Those old versions are not suitable for use by gcc.
2010-04-15complibs/libelf: enable the host buildYann E. MORIN"1-37/+33
Host libelf is required by gcc-4.5.0
2010-04-15complibs/libelf: build target libelf in its own directoryYann E. MORIN"1-2/+2
2010-04-15debug/gdb: remove insightYann E. MORIN"2-31/+1
Insight seems to be very slow to follow up on mainstreram gdb. Latest snapshots are more than 6 months old. Moreover, I don't have time to maintain insight support in crosstool-NG; and, because I don't use it, I am unable to find any breakage.
2010-04-15debug/gdb: reorder options in the menuconfigYann E. MORIN"1-11/+11
2010-04-15debug/gdb: allow static build with complibsYann E. MORIN"1-7/+0
It is now possible to built static versions of the companion libraries, so we can now build a static cross-gdb using the complibs.
2010-04-15scripts: don't print the build system guess warningYann E. MORIN"1-1/+0
2010-04-13complibs/gmp: mark 5.0.1 as being experimentalYann E. MORIN"1-0/+1
MPFR can't cope with GMP > 4.x.y so hide it behind EXPERIMENTAL until we fix MPFR
2010-04-07samples: add Blackfin sampleThomas Petazzoni3-0/+589
2010-04-07Add basic support for the Blackfin architectureThomas Petazzoni5-6/+70
For uClibc, the name of the Blackfin architecture is 'bfin'. Actually, the naming of the architecture is quite messy: for toolchain tuples and uClibc, it's bfin, but for the kernel, it's blackfin. We've arbitraly choosen to name it "blackfin" in Crosstool-NG. Add Blackfin-related uClibc patch to fix a build failure related to fork() being used in unistd/daemon.c. Yann E. MORIN: Apply the patch to the kernel/linux build script to use 'linux' in the noMMU tuples. See:
2010-04-13scripts/functions: log the test stringsYann E. MORIN"1-0/+3
2010-04-13scripts/functions: compress with gzip level 3, as stated in the documentationYann E. MORIN"1-8/+12
Thanks to Bruno Tarquini <> for the report.
2010-04-13scripts/functions: add a save/restore handlerYann E. MORIN"1-62/+62
Saving and restoring the steps requires saving/restoring multiple directories. Depending on the configuration, some may not exist. Add a wrapper that checks before creating/extracting the tarballs.
