Bug Description


  CC i386-linux-user/syscall.o
cc1: warnings being treated as errors
/build/buildd/qemu-linaro-0.14.50-2011.03-0/linux-user/syscall.c: In function 'do_syscall':
/build/buildd/qemu-linaro-0.14.50-2011.03-0/linux-user/syscall.c:7630: error: implicit declaration of function 'epoll_create1'
/build/buildd/qemu-linaro-0.14.50-2011.03-0/linux-user/syscall.c:7630: error: nested extern declaration of 'epoll_create1'

Not sure what's happening here -- configure is supposed to test for the presence of epoll_create1() but it doesn't seem to be working for some reason.

This might be the result of this bug in the SPARC libc:

where it isn't getting the declaration/definition of the epoll functions right.

I've attached a patch to configure which I think ought to fix this -- Steve, can you give it a go on a Lucid SPARC box?

Tested on the Ubuntu sparc porter machine in the lucid chroot; definitely gets past the earlier build failure. Letting the build run to check whether it completes ok.

Whoops. Subsequent failure:

I've attached a patch which ought to fix the second compile failure (by renaming the qemu constant to something else).

I've also submitted the configure patch upstream.

Peter Maydell (pmaydell) wrote :

Steve: you could also try pulling qemu-linaro from git and building that, as I've just put in both these patches.

Steve Langasek (vorlon) wrote :

Confirmed that with both patches applied, qemu-linaro builds on sparc/lucid. Thanks!
