Building Rockbox on NetBSD

From Wikistix
Jump to: navigation, search

As at 2013-06-10, Rockbox needed a few patches to build under NetBSD.

First, building tools broke here:

ksh$ export RBDEV_DOWNLOAD=/usr/pkgsrc/distfiles
ksh$ export RBDEV_PREFIX=${HOME}/src/rb/xc
ksh$ export PATH=${PATH}:${RBDEV_PREFIX}/bin
ksh$ cd rockbox/tools
ksh$ ./rockboxdev.sh
…
mkdir build-x86_64-unknown-netbsd6.0.
mkdir build-x86_64-unknown-netbsd6.0./libiberty
Configuring in build-x86_64-unknown-netbsd6.0./libiberty
configure: error: cannot find sources (xmalloc.c) in ../../gcc-4.4.4/libiberty
gmake[1]: *** [configure-build-libiberty] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/rbdev-build/build-gcc'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2

The following patch fixed this step:

ksh$ cd /tmp/rbdev-build
ksh$ diff -u build-gcc/Makefile build-gcc.fixed/Makefile

Next is a bug in the Rockbox sources assuming GNU Linux, which generates the build error:

ksh$ gmake zip
…
GEN buttons.lua
In file included from <stdin>:1:0:
/home/stix/src/rb/rockbox/firmware/libc/include/stdio.h:36:57: error: expected declaration specifiers or '...' before '__gnuc_va_list'
gmake: *** [/home/stix/src/rb/rockbox/build/apps/plugins/lua/buttons.lua] Error 1

Easily fixed, with the following patch:

--- a/firmware/libc/include/stdio.h
