2020-09-14build: Alternative build system based on wafSebastian Huber1-0/+0
Update #3818.
2018-06-15tools: Remove install-if-change programSebastian Huber1-18/+3
The last installed tool in RTEMS repository is the install-if-change script. It is not used to build/install BSPs. This script does the same as the standard "install" program with an additional feature to install variants via the -V command line option. This script is used by the standard Makefile support: c/src/make/$(PROJECT_BIN)/install-if-change The INSTALL_CHANGE is used by: c/src/make/ INSTALL_CHANGE c/src/make/$(PROJECT_BIN)/install-if-change c/src/make/$(INSTALL_CHANGE) -V "$(LIB_VARIANT)" Remove the support for variant installation and instead use the standard "install" program. This breaks application Makefiles using the standard Makefile support of RTEMS. Close #3455.
2018-06-15make: Remove CFLAGS_DEBUG_OPTIMIZE_VSebastian Huber1-4/+0
Do not document CFLAGS_DEBUG_OPTIMIZE_V, since this flag is not used.
2012-05-11Remove All CVS Id Strings Possible Using a ScriptJoel Sherrill1-4/+0
Script does what is expected and tries to do it as smartly as possible. + remove occurrences of two blank comment lines next to each other after Id string line removed. + remove entire comment blocks which only exited to contain CVS Ids + If the processing left a blank line at the top of a file, it was removed.

1999-11-22Patch rtems-rc-19991117-4.diff from Ralf Corsepius <>:Joel Sherrill1-2/+2
.. a major configuration cleanup ... major enhancement of automake support. ... and it contains a *major* breakthough: Automake support for libchip and libmisc *LEAF* directories. To implement this I have used several nasty tricks * The basical trick is to wrap an old's contents into a and still continue to use (i.e include) the old *.cfg files. * Replaced each INSTALL_IF_CHANGE and INSTALL_VARIANT with make dependencies * Add a gnu-make ifdef AUTOMAKE to main.cfg to avoid conflicts between automake and RTEMS make rules * Replaced each install:: and preinstall:: rule with make dependencies * Replaced SUB_DIRS with SUBDIRS in all Makefile.ins (Automake convention) * Removed each manually added autoconf substitution which automake performs automatically. This is not yet full automake support, because using the temporary installation directory, preinstallation in general and building variants are in contradiction to automake's basic working principles ... ... the new Makefile.ams work still somewhat clumsy ... nevertheless they work (quite well). WARNING: At first glance this patch is small, but * it affects the whole configuration system. * it opens the road to introducing automake to all Makefile.ins currently not being under automake control. JOEL> Does this remove or add any files? Both, all Makefile.ins below libchip and libmisc get replaced with Makefile.ams.
1999-10-26Removed all references to HOST_ARCH including the file AllJoel Sherrill1-21/+0
host programs are now compiled with automake generated rules. This was done after discussions with Ralf Corsepius and Eric Norum.
1999-10-05Removed targets and configurations that are no longer functionalJoel Sherrill1-16/+16
and not likely to become so. Comments on each configuration are below. + Force CPU386 - This BSP was developed as part of the initial port of RTEMS to the i386. This board has been unavailable for a long time now. + GO32 - This BSP and some CPU code supported djgpp v1.x. This version is now quite old. No one has stepped forward to update the code to v2.x which may be technically impossible anyway. More importantly, go32 has been superceded by the pc386 BSP.
1999-07-26 Patch from Ralf Corsepius <>:Joel Sherrill1-6/+3
This patch is an addition to "The big-patch" CHANGES: * FIX: c/ bogus comment which changed the behavior of c/ removed * FIX: make/custom/ts_i386ex.cfg did not set HAS_NETWORKING correctly (Me thinks it might have been me who added this bogus setting :-). * NEW: removing make targets get, protos, debug_install, profile_install * NEW: replacing clobber with distclean * NEW: Reimplement distclean and clean as reverse depth first make targets (adaptation to automake's behavior) * NEW: removing RCS_CLEAN from make distclean (tools/build/rcs_clean is still in - remove it?) * NEW: "$(RM) Makefile" added to make distclean (adaptation to automake's behavior) * NEW: "$(RM) config.cache config.log" to CLOBBER_ADDITIONS in [lib|exec|tests]/ (adaptation to automake's behavior) * NEW: "$(CLEAN_PROTOS)" removed (Not used anywhere) * NEW: binpatch.c moved from i386 bsp tools to tools/build (AFAIS, binpatch is not specific to the pc386 BSP at all) * NEW: AC_EXEEXT added to all configure scripts which contain AC_PROG_CC (Cygwin support) * NEW/Experimental: An experimental implementation of temporary installation tree support in libbsp/i386/pc386/tools/, based on dependency tracking with make, instead of applying INSTALL_CHANGE. REMARK: * This patch is small in size, but changes the behavior of "make clean|distclean|clobber" basically. * This patch does not alter building/compiling RTEMS, ie. there should be no need to rerun all "make all" building tests. KNOWN BUGS: * make RTEMS_BSP="..." distclean in c/ runs "make distclean" in BSPs subdirectories passed through RTEMS_BSP and in "c/." only, but does not descend into other BSP subdirectories previously configured with different settings of make RTEMS_BSP="...". => Workaround: always use the same setting of RTEMS_BSP when working inside the build-tree. * "make [distclean|clean]" do not clean subdirectories, which have been configured at configuration time, but which are not used due to make-time configuration (e.g. macros/networking/rdgb subdirectories). This will problem will vanish by itself when migrating from make-time to configuration-time configuration APPLYING THE PATCH mv c/src/lib/libbsp/i386/pc386/tools/binpatch.c tools/build patch -p1 < rtems-rc-19990709-2.diff autogen
1998-06-27Monstrous patch from Ralf Corsepius <>. I haveJoel Sherrill1-5/+0
made no attempt to divide the comments up and place them with just the appropriate files. Here is an excerpt from Ralf's email: Changes including comments on changes I made after cycling through all the targets: * Added ranlib support. Now all targets use "ranlib" instead of "ar -s" to build an index for a library. If ranlib isn't detected during configuration, check if ar -s is working and try "ar -s" instead of * Removed $(XXX_FOR_TARGET) from make/, use $(XXX) instead now. * gcc-target-default.cfg: LINK_XXXX-defines reworked to solve the -l problem under posix (cf gcc-target-default.cfg) * rtems-glom replaced by Makefile-rules inside of the wrapup/ that has been using rtems-glom until now. * Removed CCC and friends in gcc-target-default.cfg, as they have been breaking CXX support. * Removed CONFIG.$(TARGET_ARCH).CC lines from several custom/*.cfg files, because this is now set in custom/default.cfg. * Added aclocal/ar-s.m4, check whether "ar -s" is working * Added aclocal/cygwin.m4 and aclocal/exeext.m4. * Reworked aclocal/canonicalize-tools.m4: Added ar -s check; fixes for problems when XXX_FOR_TARGET is given via environment variables (didn't work for gcc until now), adding cygwin check, improved autoconf-cache handling. * Removed -l from make rule dependencies. LINK_LIBS is now allowed to contain -L and -l. LINK_OBJS and LINK_FILES must not contain -L or -l. gcc28 make-exe rules now link using $(LINK_OBJS) $(LINK_LIBS) => Almost all custom/*.cfg are modified. This is very likely to break something because of typos or having missed to edit a file. Open problems, known bugs, things I didn't do: * custom/p4000.cfg seems to be out of date and requires to be reviewed. (JRS NOTE: It is subordinate p4650 and p4600 -- both of which build ok after minor changes.) * custom/psim.cfg needs to be reviewed, I added some changes to it, I am insecure about. (JRS NOTE: psim had a minor problem endif/endef swapped but runs fine.) * can now be removed. * gcc*.cfg files "make depend" rules don't honor language specific flags (e.g CXXFLAGS is ignored for *.cc) - Nothing to worry about now, but may cause problems for hosts/targets not using gcc or rtems-add-ons that use external packages. * AFAIS, the no_bsp BSP can't be build anymore, i.e. configure refused to configure for it whatever I tried. * The toplevel and toplevel+1 README files are quite out-dated * cygwin.m4 isn't of much use for rtems. In most cases (cf. aclocal/*.m4) it is worked around by directly using $host_os. I think I'll remove it soon after the next snapshot * Before release the cygwin patch needs to be tested under cygwin. I may have broken/missed something (esp. the sed-pattern to convert \\ into / may be broken). * You should try to build/run the posix-BSP under solaris - I don't expect problems, but I am not 100% sure, esp. with regard to ranlib/ar -s. * You should consider to convert all make/compilers/*.cfg files into make/compilers/* files and let autoconf generate the *.cfg. This may help getting rid of some if/then/else statements and help hard-coding some defines into those files in future and shouldn't disturb now. * Not having installed libc.a/libm.a on a host may still break building rtems, esp. when using -disable-gcc28 as the gcc27-configuration scheme directly accesses libc.a and libm.a. The problem should not appear when using gcc28 because it references libc/libm only through -lc and -lm which may be static or dynamic (I didn't test this). * shgen is not yet included (I didn't yet have enough time to integrate it). * I know about a few more configure-probs (esp. cross-checking --enable-* flags). + warn/refuse to configure when --enable-libcdir and --enable-gcc28 are given. + force --enable-libcdir when --disable-gcc28 is given * Replaced KSHELL with @KSH@ in some shell scripts generated by * Added a dependency to aclocal/*.m4 in the toplevel Makefile => configure and aclocal.m4 will now be rebuild when any aclocal/*.m4 file is changed * Some changes to aclocal/gcc-pipe.m4 and aclocal/gcc-specs.m4 * Replaced i[[3456]]86-unknown-freebsd2.[[12]] with i[[3456]]86-*freebsd2.* in, as I suppose there might exist a variety of valid vendors (2nd field of the name-tripple) * Disabled override MAKEFLAGS in toplevel - Potential side-effects are not really clear to me. * In mvme162.cfg, $(LINK_LIBS) is missing in the CC line in gcc28's make-exe rule (yet another one I missed to edit). Just append $(LINK_LIBS) to the "CC" line, like I hopefully did to ALL other custom/*.cfg files. * the problem with mvme162lx.cfg is a follow-up problem of the mvme162.cfg-bug. * mvme162/console and idp/console had variables named Buffer which conflicted with similarly named variables in some tests.
