So I have to change the GCC_VER to 4.4 and the scripts/cross-gcc-pass1?

You have to change GCC_VER to 4.4.2 or 4.4.3 (I only tested it with 4.4.3, both should work though) and as you already said add the patch in scripts/cross-gcc-pass1

Thanks for your response, but binutils wants to install on my root /. I don't know why. The last time i built hurd it worked.

EDIT:
I changed in scripts/cross-binutils

make install

to

make DESTDIR=$CHFS install

But that didnt work too.

I'm sorry I can't help you there.
I am actually using the old crosshurd script (crosshurd20100121.tar.gz) because I am experiencing similar issues as you with the new one.
I'm not sure if this behavior is intended or an accident, maybe Allan can give us a hint on using the newer script smile

Allan broke it smile.

I did change DESTDIR in binutils not in cross-binutils.

with the real cross-binutils changed it worked. Now i have to change the DESTDIRS in all  cross-* scripts. I hope it will work then.

EDIT:
I cannot use this patch.

I added it this way:

patch -p0 < $SRCDIR/patches/gcc-$GCC_VER/hurd-changes.diff

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

You need to use patchlevel 1, your command would be:

patch -p1 < $SRCDIR/patches/gcc-$GCC_VER/hurd-changes.diff

Further than that, I noticed that the tabs from the patch are converted to spaces in my post, so you should copy the parts you need directly from the debian patch. Sorry about that.
I have practically no experience with this forum so I would very much appreciate it if somebody would please tell me if I did something wrong or if this is a bug/feature.

Thanks, but too late. smile (One of the files in the patch doens't exists so it could not patch)

I am working on the scripts and trying to compile hurd.
I will post my changes if it works.

This is useful smile

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

The latest cross scripts I put on the website require more setup for use.  I think I explained it in the post I put it in but...

You need symlinks to in / to folders in $ROOT.  e.g.

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root   34 Feb  3 00:18 cross-tools -> /home/allan/hurd/hurd/cross-tools/
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root    28 Feb  3 00:18 tools -> /home/allan/hurd/hurd/tools/

where ROOT=/home/allan/hurd for me.  Refer to CLFS for details.   That makes the cross-compiled compiler actually work once we boot the hurd build.  Otherwise, you end up with really annoying issues (hence the reason I rewrote the cross scripts...).

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

I took a quick look at this again today.   The "cross hurd from scratch" approach has booting issues, so it is probably easier hacking together a fully working gcc when inside the booted hurd.  Also, the old approach did not require as much manual interaction at the start.  So, I reverted to the previous approach and made a couple of changes based on the work I had done.

Grab a tarball here: http://allanmcrae.com/hurd/crosshurd-20100224.tar.gz

I have not got the time to fully test this.  Everything in scripts/devel should build and scripts/devel/chfs is the remaining packages from the CHFS approach so should provide guidelines.  Mainly DESTDIR changes will be needed.

I am very time limited lately, so will not be working on this in the near future.  The likelihood of me working on it is the distant future is also low.  While the idea of Arch Hurd still appeals to me, the lack of any real active upstream is very discouraging and I have a few other ideas that I think would be better long term projects.

So good luck!  I will keep following this thread.

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

Easiest solution it to delete the libtool files (.la).   They are not needed.  Might have to recompile mpfr after deleting gmp's .la files.

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

Hmm... there is a fix for that somewhere....

Do this in your source directory:

cp gcc/Makefile.in{,.orig}
sed 's@\./fixinc\.sh@-c true@' gcc/Makefile.in.orig > gcc/Makefile.in

That should stop fixincludes running a prevent that error.

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

I had this same problem trying to compile gcc-4.2.4. After spending forever trying to work out what was causing it,
I finally tracked it down to "SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR" not being set properly in gcc/Makefile.in.

So here is the cheap hack I made to manually set it:

--- a/gcc/Makefile.in.orig      2010-02-25 20:45:22.897274306 +0000
+++ b/gcc/Makefile.in   2010-02-25 20:47:07.657262153 +0000
@@ -409,7 +409,7 @@
 # The sed idiom for this is to repeat the search-and-replace until it doesn't match, using :a ... ta.
 # Use single quotes here to avoid nested double- and backquotes, this
 # macro is also used in a double-quoted context.
-SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR = `echo @SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR@ | sed -e :a -e 's,[^/]*/\.\.\/,,' -e ta`
+SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR = /tools/include
 
 # Control whether to run fixproto and fixincludes.
 STMP_FIXPROTO = @STMP_FIXPROTO@

You while have to change the location it points to tho, since this was for the CHFS approach.


Also I keep get the blocksize too small error message. I'm using the instructions on the archhurh.org install page,
even tho I wasn't getting the error before when I followed them.

Edit: Allan I also tried that approach, but it still didn't work for me.

Re: The Arch Hurd Project

Did you get anything of interest in the build output?   I seem to remember battling that in the past but I thought I had gotten around that issue with some patching to glibc...
