    Ok so transmissiond has more features. I didn't know that. I can just exclude transmissiond in the makefile so build doesn't break.

    As I know, Oleg also has plans to migrate to new toolchain, but he is on vacation now.

    I builded new toolchain based on OpenWRT development trunk 2008-06-14 (gcc 3.4.6, uClibc 0.9.29, binutils 2.17) under SuSe 10.1. Only a few extra patches needed for toolchain itself, but firmware also has to be patched due to gcc upgrade.
    If you want to take a look to my patches - drop me a line.

    One thing I'll mention is that I installed the new toolchain from nslu2-linux.org fine on 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04 once the above mentioned binutils configure script patch was applied. The resulting ipkg file installed correctly and the binaries ran although the end result wasn't what I had expected. Just a fyi. I was trying to build nfs-utils if I can however I think the whole thing needs the kernel to be updated to support the function. Otherwise the binaries worked without segfaulting.

    My second attempt was on the cygwin platform so that I may simply work on my project on both systems but I'll need to solve the error on the gcc side if I want it to work.

    @lly: GCC version is 4.1 so I don't know what you mean that it has to be updated to support the new version. All gcc versions are binary compatible with each other.

    EDIT: Oh. I just realized what you were talking about. You updated the firmware build toolkit. That was different from what my goal was. I am just trying to build ipkg files and not necessarily the firmware.

    So let see what you have had in mind. Oleg is using mine toolchain. This toolchain crates packages with uClibc independent of system libc!
    If you meant that Oleg will upgrade its toolchain for fimware and system uclibc to 0.9.29 then this is good news. But again I am looking to upgrade of mine toolchain what will again bi independent of system uClibc. This way ddwrt and other brcm24 platforms can run without library clash!

    Thank you. Now toolchain can be built on newer systems.

  7. #37
    Yes. Now I don't need to apply the patch midway when the compile breaks. It will "just work" now.

    Yes. I'm using Suse 11.0 and Fedora 8. Some packages depends on concrete version (1.9) of aclocal and automake. I will fix it soon.

    The challenge to upgrade toolchain and uClibc to newer version is still open.
    I can help with explanation of pathches bot have no time to spend on on upgrade.

    There is also pending branch http://trac.nslu2-linux.org/optware/...clibc-unstable
    which introduced LJSJ in config that solves C++ exceptions problem on mipsel arch. Besides upgrade of course.

    Yay! The last time I built I was able to do the build from ground zero without stopping this time. Ubuntu 8.04 x86

    I know the last post is quite long ago, but i hope someone can remember the discussed problem.

    I have compiled the ximeta binary (version 1.1-20) in order to use them in combination with an avm fritzbox. I succeeded in compiling, loading modules, starting ndasadmin and registering my device, as PB_LIST did. I get an slot number, but enabling with these slot number fails. The router (fritzbox) stops working and reboot after one or two minutes of inactivity. I think it's the same behaviour PB_LIST has described some in his last post.
    I want to know, if anybody has managed to enable an NDAS-drive successful on an router ?
    I would be grateful for any support, you can give me.

    Compiling libmemcache in cross-compile

    I am using the cross-compile environment from nslu2-linux.org. The toolchain built fine and most packages do so as well however libmemcache fails to do so at all.

    It gets up to a certain point then fails complaining about either libtool or thinking the parameters given are commands.

    My OS is Ubuntu 8.10 beta. It is using libtool version 2.2.4. Any ideas?

    Here is the error code. I can't seem to find a fix for this.
    Code:
    shinji@shinji-laptop:~/optware/oleg$ make libmemcache
    rm -f /home/shinji/optware/oleg/builds/libmemcache/.built

    usually it helps if an older version of tool is installed.

  14. #44
    Yea. I figured that out after a while. Unfortunately Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) doesn't have an appropriate version in the repository. I had to downgrade to 8.04 to make it all work. I'm "borrowing" some intrepid packages though. I have compiled and created new lighttpd 1.4.20 packages that include all current features. I also did a 1.5 pre-release package. The 1.5.x branch may have a new dependency on glib but I placed it under suggest until I know it will be needed for runtime. The package is marked as experimental but does compile cleanly.

    Hi,

    I found this link about the problem: http://moc.daper.net/node/352
    Someone mentions that in the generated file /opt/optware/oleg/builds/libmemcache/libtool the $echo variable is not set. When the error occurs you can add a line echo='echo' just after the line ECHO='echo'. If you do a make again libmemcache will compile.

    With make lighttpd you will now get another error...
    It cannot find the curses/termcap library when the mysql library is compiled.

    Pim.
