* package/customize: removeGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-02-081-1/+0

* Integration with Buildroot Toolchain Eclipse pluginGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-141-0/+28
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The Eclipse plugin at https://github.com/mbats/eclipse-buildroot-toolchain-plugin allows users of Eclipse to easily use the toolchain available in Buildroot. To do so, this plugin reads ~/.buildroot-eclipse.toolchains, which contains the list of Buildroot toolchains available on the system, and then offer those toolchains to compile Eclipse projects. In order to interface with this plugin, this commit adds an option that allows the user to tell whether (s)he wants the Buildroot project toolchain to be visible under this Eclipse plugin. It simply adds a line in this ~/.buildroot-eclipse.toolchains file. Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>

* Infrastructure to warn the user about missing 32 bits librariesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-061-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Many users trying to use external toolchains on x86-64 machines get a very confusing message: "Can't execute cross-compiler" They get this message because they forgot to install the 32 bits compatibility libraries that are needed to run binaries compiled for x86 on x86-64 machines. Since this is the case for both external toolchains and certain binary-only tools like SAM-BA, we add a new Kconfig option BR2_HOSTARCH_NEEDS_IA32_LIBS, that packages must select if they need the 32 bits compatibility libraries. When this option is enabled, dependencies.sh checks that the 32 bits dynamic library loader is present on the system, and if not, it stops and shows an error. The path and name of the 32 bits dynamic loader is hardcoded because it is very unlikely to change, as it would break the ABI for all binaries. Also, it is worth noting that the check will be done even if we're running on a 32 bits machine. This is harmless, as 32 bits machines necessarily have the 32 bits dynamic loader installed, so the error will never show up in this case.

* xorg-release: ignore some X.org packagesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-051-0/+11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Following Gustavo's removal of two X.org drivers for old hardware unlikely to be used in embedded contexts, the xorg-release script now reports those two X.org packages as "to be added": they exist in X.org, but not in Buildroot. So, we add a small list, XORG_EXCEPTIONS, in our xorg-release script, to list the X.org packages we don't want to hear about. Of course, packages that exist in X.org, and that are not part of this exception list, and are not packaged in Buildroot are still listed as "to be added".

* graph-depends: remove support for "unknown" packagesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-021-12/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | The "unknown" packages mechanism was used to render packages that did not implement the make <pkg>-show-depends target, i.e the packages that were not yet converted to one of the package infrastructures.

* graph-depends: optimize execution speedGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-021-45/+71
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Until now, graph-depends was calling "make <pkg>-show-depends" individually for eack package, which was very slow. Now, it calls "make <pkg1>-show-depends <pkg2>-show-depends ... <pkgN>-show-depends" for all packages it knows, and then does that recursively. It reduces the number of make invocations to the deepest dependency chain in the current configuration, instead of having a number of make invocations equal to the number of enabled packages. For a configuration with xvkbd enabled (which brings a significant number of X.org dependencies) and a tar root filesystem, the time to execute graph-depends was: real 5m14.944s user 4m53.590s sys 0m14.069s After our optimizations, it is now: real 0m33.096s user 0m30.878s sys 0m1.472s Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
* graph-depends: use a separate TARGET_EXCEPTIONS variableGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-021-6/+10

* graph-depends: remove redundant dependenciesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-01-021-0/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When doing a full graph of the dependencies, graph-depends starts by doing a "make show-targets", which lists all the packages registered in the $(TARGETS) variable. This variable contains all packages that are enabled according to the .config file. Then, for each of those packages, we used to create a "all" -> "package" dependency, even if in fact most of some packages are already dependencies of other packages. This creates a needlessly complex dependency graph. This patch modifies graph-depends so that it filters out the unneeded "all" -> "package" dependencies when "package" is already the dependency of another package. For example, if you have a configuration with libpng (which selects zlib), "make show-targets" displays "libpng zlib", so graph-depends used to create the following dependencies: (all -> libpng, all -> zlib, libpng -> zlib). However, the (all -> zlib) dependency is not really needed, as zlib is already the dependency of libpng. Those dependencies are now filtered out.

* target: add option to set the root passwordGravatar Yann E. MORIN2012-12-301-0/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add an option in the menuconfig to specify a root password. If set to empty, no root password is created; otherwise, the password is encrypted using MD5 (MD5 is not the default for crypt(3), DES-56 is, but MD5 is widely available, not-so-strong, but not-so-weak either). Add a check for 'mkpasswd' as a new dependency. [Peter: fix typo/capitilization and simplify logic] Signed-off-by: "Yann E.

* Warn the user about the usage of output/target as the root filesystemGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2012-11-171-0/+29
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A very common mistake done by our users is that they use output/target/ directory as their root filesystem. Even though this is loudly documented in our Buildroot manual, people don't read documentation, so it is not sufficient. This patch adds a text file named output/target/THIS_IS_NOT_YOUR_ROOT_FILESYSTEM which explains why output/target isn't appropriate to use as the root filesystem. The process is: * At the beginning of the build, right after the skeleton has been copied, support/misc/target-dir-warning.txt is copied to output/target/THIS_IS_NOT_YOUR_ROOT_FILESYSTEM * In the filesystem images creation code, this file is removed before launching fakeroot, and restored right after that, so that this file is not present in the generated root filesystem images. Note that the file has not been added to the default skeleton for two reasons: * It would have annoying to have in our source tree a file named in capital letters inside system/skeleton/ * The proposed way works even if the user uses a custom skeleton.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | graph-depends calls make to get the list of packages, and the dependencies of each package. When called out-of-tree, the Makefile is a wrapper that calls the real Makefile, so make will spit out a line like: make -C /path/to/buildroot O=/path/to/build-dir show-targets which graph-depends wrongly believes is part of the target list.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This allows to automatically collect material that may be needed to comply with the license of packages that Buildroot prepares for the target device. The core of the implementation is made by the following parts: - in package/pkg-utils.mk some helper functions are defined for common actions such as generating a warning, producing info about a package etc; - in package/pkg-gentargets.mk, within the GENTARGETS framework, a new <PKG>-legal-info target produces all the info for a given package; - Makefile implements the top-level targets: - legal-info-prepare creates the output directory and produces legal info about Buildroot itself and the toolchain, which mostly means just warning the user that this is not implemented; - legal-info, the only target that is supposed to be used directly, depends on all of the above and finishes things by producing the README files from the various pieces.

* dependencies: build a host-tar if no suitable tar can be foundGravatar Thomas De Schampheleire2012-02-092-0/+44
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some toolchains, like the one built with buildroot itself, use hardlinks (for example to link between the c++ and g++ binary). Unpacking such a toolchain with the --strip-components options does not work correctly if the system tar is too old (<1.17). Even recent releases of RedHat/CentOS still ship with tar 1.15. This patch checks for a suitable tar version (tar 1.17+) on the host system, and adds host-tar to the host dependencies if none can be found. host-tar is download and extracted as cpio.gz instead of tar.gz, to prevent chicken-egg problem.

* dependencies: add function suitable-host-packageGravatar Thomas De Schampheleire2012-02-091-0/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Sometimes, buildroot needs a certain host tool to do its job, e.g. tar. In many cases, we expect this tool to be present on the host system, but this is not always the case. Or maybe, the version on the host system is not suitable, and we need a more recent one. In some of these cases, instead of bailing out, buildroot could build the package first (but only if the existing system package is not suitable). To aid in detecting if a host package is suitable or not, this patch adds a function suitable-host-package. When called with parameter foo, it will execute check-host-foo.sh. This script should return either the path to the suitable host package, or the empty string if no suitable package can be found. The rules to determine whether something is suitable or not is left to check-host-foo.sh and depends on foo. An example usage of suitable-host-package is: DEPENDENCIES_HOST_PREREQ += $(if $(call suitable-host-package,foo),,host-foo) To avoid cluttering the existing dependencies.mk file, it includes any check-host-foo.mk file.
