2013-01-27script: allow to pass any float value for CT_LOADSamuel Martin1-9/+7

2012-11-16scripts: add BUILD/HOST extra cflags/ldflagsYann Diorcet1-1/+31
On some hosts, and for certain toolchains (eg. toolchain targetting the upcoming Darwin), it may be necessary to pass arbitrary CFLAGS and/or LDFLAGS when building the components. And necessary infrastructure: - EXTRA_{CFLAGS,LDFLAGS}_FOR_{BUILD,HOST} as config options - pass those extra flags to components Fix-up a slight typo in elf2flt at the same time (misnamed cflags).

2011-10-16config: use '0' for automatic number of jobsYann E. MORIN"1-3/+3
Also, make it the default. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>

2011-10-05scripts: support extra host compiler flagsYann E. MORIN"1-0/+10
Allow the user to configure extra flags to pass to the host compiler at build time. Applies to both C and C++. Useful on Ubuntu to turn off the stack protector and fortify defaults so the program stands a better chance of running on other distros.

2011-09-28config: add a 'auto' value for the number of parallel jobsMichael Hope1-0/+2
When CT_PARALLEL_JOBS is -1, set the number of parallel jobs to the number of online CPUs + 1. Update documentation to match. I find this useful when building in the cloud. You can use the same .config file and have the build adapt to the number of processors available. Limited testing shows that NCPUS+1 is faster than NCPUS+0 or NCPUS+2. Signed-off-by: Michael Hope <>
2010-03-29config: hide more config options when a backendYann E. MORIN"1-10/+14
Hide the prompts for some behavioral options, for which the upper-layer build system is responsible for: - parallel jobs and maximum load - use pipes - use custom shell
2010-01-29global: do not offer the renice option, let's the user handle thatYann E. MORIN"1-8/+0
It's broken anyway. Eg.: - user is already niced at 10 - user configures to renice at 5 - breaks because user is not allowed to 'boost' his/her nice value Bette let the user handle the renice with: nice -XX ct-ng 'action'
2009-08-06config: make CONFIG_SHELL default to bashYann E. MORIN"1-6/+4
Some components (eg. GMP) will fail to correctly build if the CONFIG_SHELL is not bash (eg. ash or dash). So make bash the default CONFIG_SHELL. Keep ash as a possible selection, as future versions of those currently /broken/ tools may come fixed wrt to CONFIG_SHELL being POSIX-ly compliant.
2009-08-02[config] Warn againt using ash as CONFIG_SHELLYann E. MORIN"1-1/+5
It apears that more and more ./configure scripts and Makefiles make use of non-POSIXly correct shell constructs, that don't work with ash. For now, just warn the user against using ash, but keep it as an option in case newer versions of the /broken/ components come fixed, and we can again use ash, as it is in some cases really faster than bash.
2009-08-02[config] Allow user to specify custom CONFIG_SHELLYann E. MORIN"1-3/+18
In case the shell the user wants to use as CONFIG_SHELL is located in a weird place (eg. /opt/bash/bin/bash), or is weirdly named (eg. bash-4), let the user enter the patch to the shell.
2009-08-02[config] Add bash as a possible CONFIG_SHELLYann E. MORIN"1-0/+9
On some systems and/or for some components, it may be necessary to explicitly use bash as the shell used by ./configure and Makefiles.
2009-08-02[config] Change the way to select the CONFIG_SHELLYann E. MORIN"1-9/+39
Transform the single boolean option to a 'choice' selection with two options: "sh" and "ash". This is needed to later add "bash" as override.
