create iso file for ELDK5.x

Hi All,

I would like to know how to create ISO file like this
ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/eldk/5.4/iso/eldk-5.4-powerpc-4xx.iso for example.

What are the steps ?
I didn't found documentation about it  (I also looked at  Yocto / OE )

(I succeeded to compile ELDK env  according the WIKI steps
http://www.denx.de/wiki/view/ELDK-5/EldkBuilding )

BR,
Adir Atias.

Cross Compile SRC RPM for eldk5.4

Hi all,

I'm trying to build new rpm for eldk5.4 for ppc4xx cpu.

I've installed eldk-5.4-powerpc-4xx.iso (from
ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/eldk/5.4/iso/eldk-5.4-powerpc-4xx.iso )
With this command

"./install.sh -s gmae -r - powerpc-4xx"

I attached all the steps I did (following the instructions on site)

And after eldk5.4 cross compile env installation ,
rpmbuild/rpm tools are not exists.

I need support , who can suggest?

embedding dtb into uImage

Can anyone tell me how to go about producing a powerpc uImage that 
embeds the dtb file?

I'm trying "make uImage.myboard" but it fails for want of 
uboot-myboard.o  Is there somethings else I need to do?

Re: ELDK 5.4 and 'GHOST' glibc bug

Yeah, that's a sad story, expecially as Yocto is targeting a fix only
for the 1.8M3 milestone (see [1])

This is my understanding, too.

5.6 includes basically the same compiler as 5.5.x; especially the
aforementioned bug is still unfixed.

We did not come to a final decision yet how to handle this.  It wuld
be possible to switch to GCC 4.8.4 for some ELDK v5.6.1 release or
such, but I hesitate as I'd much rather have a community accepted and
tested fix included.

Eventually we might even skip v5.7 and rather focus efforts on a quick
v5.8 which then would (hopefully) a reliable version of GCC again.

ELDK 5.4 and 'GHOST' glibc bug

Hi all,

I use ELDK v. 5.4 for a PowerPC (MPC5200B) target.  Due to [1], upgrading to 5.5.x is not an option for me.

It appears, though, that the glibc coming with 5.4 is vulnerable by CVE-2015-0235 (glibc 'GHOST'
gethostbyname buffer overflow; [2]).

Before downloading 5.6 - does it have both the gcc/PowerPC glitch *and* the GHOST bug fixed?  Or will you
provide an update for 5.4?

Thanks,
Albrecht.

whether eldk 5.5.3 support 64bit cross compilation for powerpc e6500 core?

Hi All,

whether ELDK 5.5.3 powerpc e500v2 cross compiler is support 64bit 
compilation for freescale T2080 processor (T2080 is a e6500 64bit core)?

if ELDK 5.5.3 powerpc e500v2 is not support for 64bit compilation, 
Kindly suggest me the eldk for 64bit cross compiler.

Thanks

installing 5.6

I have a question about how installation is supposed to work.

I've installed for powerpc-e500v2, using:

    sudo ./install.sh -d /opt/eldk-5.6 -a i686 -s toolchain -r "lsb-sdk
    minimal-mtdutils" powerpc-e500v2

(I've also tried toolchain-qte, they seem to behave the same in this
regard.)

And I'm trying to build a kernel using:

    export PATH :=
    /opt/eldk-5.6/powerpc-e500v2/sysroots/i686-eldk-linux/usr/bin:/opt/eldk-5.6/powerpc-e500v2/sysroots/i686-eldk-linux/usr/bin/powerpc-linux:$(PATH)

    export CROSS_COMPILE := powerpc-linux-
    export ARCH := powerpc

But I'm running into:

      LINK    vmlinux
      LD      vmlinux.o
    powerpc-linux-ld: cannot find libgcc.a: No such file or directory
    powerpc-linux-ld: cannot find libgcc.a: No such file or directory
    make[2]: *** [vmlinux] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [arch/powerpc/boot/uImage] Error 1

I find...

rpixley <at> victory> sudo find /opt/eldk-5.6 -name libgcc.a

Unable to install ELDK-5.5

Hi,
I have an Ubuntu 12.04 host located in VmWare in Windows 7. I want to install the ELDK-5.5 for the powerpc
platform but have been unsuccessful till now.
I mounted the iso file as described:
sudo mount -o loop eldk-5.5-powerpc.iso /media/cdrom
Going into the /media/cdrom folder I can see the install.sh script. Then I continue as described:
./install.sh -d /opt/eldk-5-5/ powerpc
However it gives the following error:Error: SDK image "gmae" is not available Available SDK images for
target 'powerpc':<none>
However it gives the following error:Error: RFS image "minimal" is not available Available RFS images
for target 'powerpc':<none>
Then I want to use 'none'  SDK image and 'none' in RFS image. So, I run the following command:
./install.sh -s - -r - -d /opt/eldk-5-5/ powerpc

This time, I get no error. But, nothing happens at all!! I see no installation starting. When I check the
/opt/eldk-5-5/ folder I see it is empty.
I checked this error all over the internet but found no useful solution.
I'll be very happy if anyone could help me out with this..
Thanks in advance..

complete sources for ELDK target images

Hi,

what's the best way to collect all sourcecode and licenses that are
involved in an ELDK/yocto based target image? So that these files can be
used to provide the complete sourcecode for a given target (in order to
fulfill license demands)

One method could be to provide the ELDK git repository and the download
directory that is created during the build process. But this contains
more sources than are required to build a special target image (also
contains toolchain and other images releated files).

The installed_pkgs.txt file only lists the package names and not the
sources itself.

I expect this to be a common task when creating yocto based products.
But I did not find the best way so far.
