Were there any BFD hacks for OS4?

I'm asking, because the DWARF sections in vbcc-compiled executables never worked correctly with OS4's gdb. And even addr2line, although working, emits dozens of suspiscious error messages: BFD: Dwarf Error: mangled line number section (bad file number). In the past we frequently reassured ourselves ...

Bsdsocket.library

Where has proto/bsdsocket.h gone?
I have sources which I definetely compiled in the past, but which fail now with SDK 53.20 and later. Was it removed? At least bsdsocket.xml in interfaces still exists.

Bug in newlib/include/ctype.h with vbcc

There is a longstanding bug in Newlib's ctype.h when used with vbcc: The asm_toupper and asm_tolower macros use __ctype_ptr as the address of the ctype-array, although it is a pointer. You have to replace addi 11,11,__ctype_ptr@l by lwz 11,__ctype_ptr@l(11) Please, anybody fix that for the next SDK!

Who is responsible for Newlib/vbcc ?

I'm receiving bug reports that some dynamically linked Newlib programs, compiled with vbcc, write the following messages into the serial debug log: [elf] .sdata 0x7fd55440-0x7fd55440 Projektit:Ohjelmointi/ScoreGen/ScoreGen/ScoreGen (sh_flags 0x02) has read-only flag in section header but is located ...

Bug in Local/newlib/include/ctype.h

I just wondered why toupper/tolower() are not working when compiling with vbcc and linking with newlib. Then I found the problem: somebody copied the toupper/tolower assembler inlines from the vclib ctype.h, but didn't notice that __ctype_ptr is a pointer to the ctypes-array and not the address of i...

Re: SDK 53.24 ... and followups

A simple download link to the SDK would be nice, so developers also have the possibility to load the archive onto a GUI-less server, using wget or lynx. With Lynx I'm getting "Unsupported URL scheme". *sigh* :roll: Download SDK_53.24.lha Click the link below to download the file. Do not select "save...

Re: WarpOS emulation bugs

I just read that the team is working on update 4.
Were these WarpOS emulation bugs already considered? They are certainly easy to fix.

WarpOS emulation bugs

I'm not sure about the status and the future of the WarpOS emulation in OS4, but maybe you want to check this: I was sent a small 68k example program, which calls a PPC function via powerpc.library RunPPC(). It works fine with the original kernel, while it is causing a Grim Reaper under OS4.1. After...
