Compiling problems in TCL
« on: March 24, 2009, 03:31:31 PM »
I'm having some problems compiling kexec-tools in Tiny Core v1.2. After installing compiletc, I unpacked the source code (from http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/k/kexec-tools/kexec-tools_20080324.orig.tar.gz) and started compiling with ./configure&&make. Unfortunately, I got some errors:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p purgatory
gcc -lz   --no-undefined -nostartfiles -nostdlib -nodefaultlibs -e purgatory_start -r -o purgatory/purgatory.ro purgatory/purgatory.o purgatory/printf.o purgatory/string.o purgatory/arch/i386/entry32-16.o purgatory/arch/i386/entry32-16-debug.o purgatory/arch/i386/entry32.o purgatory/arch/i386/setup-x86.o purgatory/arch/i386/stack.o purgatory/arch/i386/compat_x86_64.o purgatory/arch/i386/purgatory-x86.o purgatory/arch/i386/console-x86.o purgatory/arch/i386/vga.o purgatory/arch/i386/pic.o purgatory/arch/i386/crashdump_backup.o purgatory/sha256.o
/tmp/tcloop/compiletc/usr/bin/../lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.2.2/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [purgatory/purgatory.ro] Error 1
Apparently, it can't find the zlib libraries, but they seem to be present in /usr/lib thanks to compiletc.
Has anyone else run into this problem?

Only the libraries (base) and headers (compiletc) are provided.  The development libraries aren't present, which is why the linker fails.

I don't see another package for the dev files, so maybe it'll be easier just to compile and install zlib first.

It's time I had a look at compiletc again - I'll try get around to it in the next few days.

I added libz.a to compiletc - when compiling zlib the switch "--shared" compiles only the shared libs, but compiling with no switch compiles both static and shared libs - and kexec-tools compiles without errors.

I'll update compiletc and post - the jpeg static libs need adding as well.

Edit: spoke too soon, things work with compiletc.tce, but not with compiletc.tcz  :-\

Thanks for the update to compiletc.tce. I was able to comple kexec-tools. Next step: recompile the kernel! (I've done it for Slax before, so I think I have the general idea.)

You're welcome, but you'll notice that if you use compiletc.tcz, kexec-tools will not compile - I'm still thinking about this one...
