Description Koen Kooi 2007-07-24 03:55:36 PDT
It looks like r24411 introduced running the just built 'dftables', which of course doesn't work when crosscompiling x86->arm, since my opteron chokes on armv5te instructions.

The error

echo "#include <string.h>" > /data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebKitBuilds/Debug//WebCore/tmp/DocTypeStrings.cpp && gperf -CEot -L ANSI-C -k '*' -N findDoctypeEntry -F ,PubIDInfo::eAlmostStandards,PubIDInfo::eAlmostStandards < /data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebCore/html/DocTypeStrings.gperf >> /data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebKitBuilds/Debug//WebCore/tmp/DocTypeStrings.cpp/data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebKitBuilds/Debug/JavaScriptCore/pcre/tmp/dftables tmp/chartables.c/data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebKitBuilds/Debug/JavaScriptCore/pcre/tmp/dftables: /data/build/koen/OE/build/tmp/angstrom/work/armv5te-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/webkit-0.0+svn20070724-r1/WebKitBuilds/Debug/JavaScriptCore/pcre/tmp/dftables: cannot execute binary filemake[1]: *** [tmp/chartables.c] Error 126

Could this be changes to run an external dftables (e.g. dftables from x86 pcre) or back out the offending cset?

WebkitGdk did work brilliantly on my arm devices before this cset.

As I said in the starting comment:

"WebkitGdk did work brilliantly on my arm devices before this cset."

So tagging it with 'QT' is useless

I worked around this with:

and doing

Is this still an issue?  See also Bug 16818.

We no longer use PCRE, I don't believe this bug can still be live.
