#1874 closed defect (fixed)

ALL: Build fails on non-i386 archs if nasm is installed

Reported by: SF/toreanderson Owned by: sev-
Priority: high Component: Ports
Keywords: Cc:


I suspect the build process is somewhat broken for
non-i386 archs where nasm is installed. At least, the
automatic .deb build for ia64 bombed out with this message:

/usr/bin/ld: common/libcommon.a(hq2x_i386.o):
Relocations in generic ELF (EM: 3)
common/libcommon.a: could not read symbols: File in
wrong format

It's fairly easy to work around, I'll just add a
Build-Conflict for nasm on all other architectures than
i386. But I think it is really something the configure
script should be clever enough to handle properly on
its own - so if it's easy to fix it would've been nice
to have it included in 0.7.1.

Eugene, I think the nasm stuff was yours?

I guess a proper fix would be to verify that the arch is IA32, somehow?

Tore, what does "./config.guess" output on a typical IA64 system?

Fix is in CVS. Though, still we should switch all our
nasm-related code to nasm. I mean scale2x.cpp and MT-32
emulator. Just for the sake of consistency.

Please backport the fix to the 0.7.x branch, too, so we can include it in
