I'm trying to get the latest Kaffe up and running on an ARM-based
Tim Wilkinson mentioned that ARM was an actively supported platform
and that it should work. I want to double check that I'm using not
running into any problems induced by my build tools.
I'd also like to talk to others working on ARM-based platforms.
I'm doing cross-development work on a Linux/x86 system using
gcc version egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release)
I'm compiling with..."-g -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes".
Since I'm in a cross-development environment, I specified
setenv ac_cv_c_bigendian no
setenv ac_cv_c_char_unsigned no
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_short 2
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_int 2
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_int 4
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_char 1
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_long_long 8
setenv ac_cv_sizeof___int64 8
setenv ac_cv_sizeof_voidp 4
setenv ac_cv_alignmentof_voidp 4
and then configured..
./configure --prefix=/home/grunwald/Kaffe/itsy-install \
--enable-staticlib --with-engine=intrp \
The system builds and installs. When I run it, I get a null pointer in..
#0 0x53e94 in java_lang_System_arraycopy (src=0x2bd878, srcpos=1, dst=0x1,
dstpos=1, len=8) at System.c:59
59 dclass = OBJECT_CLASS(dst);
...which is called from support.c at...
358 /* Make the call - system dependent */
This makes me suspect there's something amiss in the machine-specific
portion of the configuration.
(a) anyone hacking on arm?
(b) do you see this problem?
