Build of RTEMS 4.11.2 using RSB fails for ARM

I have built release 4.11.2 of RTEMS for ERC32, and it can successfully run the hello example using the SPARC gdb.

I'm now trying to build RTEMS for ARM using RSB 4.11.2, but RSB fails after it has built the kernel, while it is making a hello example test. The strange thing is that RSB is attempting to use a file that is part of the RTEMS built for ERC32 - a file that does not exist. The prefix for the ERC32 RTEMS is /home/smile/dev/rtems/4.11/erc32 and /home/smile/dev/rtems/4.11/arm for the ARM RTEMS.

Used build command: ../source-builder/sb-set-builder --prefix=$HOME/dev/rtems/4.11/arm 4.11/rtems-arm

I forgot to mention that the platform is Debian 8.

As a work around please add --without-rtems as an option to the RSB set builder command. You will then need to build RTEMS yourself and you can select the specific BSP you are interested in.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

This fix resolves the RSB side of things, the kernel is now not build by default with the following change so this error is avoided:


The underlying bug in the BSP is still present and if it is a problem a new ticket can be created.
