I tried to crosscompile from linux i386 to arm-linux-gnueabihf, but i cant make it happen, because it gives me this weird error while running 'make':
checking ncurses.h usability... yes checking ncurses.h presence... yes checking for ncurses.h... yes checking for setupterm in -ltinfo... no checking for setupterm in -lncursesw... no checking for setupterm in -lncurses... no checking for setupterm in -lcurses... no configure: error: in '/home/edi/ghc_cross/ghc/libraries/terminfo': configure: error: curses library not found, so this package cannot be built See 'config.log' for more details make: *** [libraries/terminfo/dist-install/package-data.mk] Error 1 make: *** [all_libraries/terminfo] Error 2 make: Leave Directory '/home/edi/ghc_cross/ghc' make: *** [all] Error 2
What have i done: -) Compiled 7.8.0 from github (The log says 'That should have been 7.8.0', i chose 7.8 because i thought it would be more stable for crosscompiling) to my i386 (normal boot, configure, make, make install). This worked fine -) installed newest llvm from svn (LLVM version 3.5svn) -) replaced the libffi-3.0.11.tar.gz in ghc/libffi-tarballs with libffi-3.0.13 -) added this version of mk/build.mk:
SRC_HC_OPTS = -H32m _o -fasm -Rghc-timing GhcStage1HcOpts = -O -fasm GhcStage2HcOpts = -O0 -DDEBUG -Wall GhcLibHcOpts = -O -fasm -XGenerics GhcLibWays = v dyn SplitObjs = NO Stage1Only = YES
-) downloaded the sourcecode of ncurses from http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/n/ncurses/ncurses_5.9.orig.tar.gz and builded it with "./configure arm-linux-gnueabihf --with-gcc=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc --target=arm-linux-gnueabihf --prefix=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf " + "make". afterwards i added the folder to my $PATH
-)did "perl boot", "./configure --target=arm-linux-gnueabihf --with-gcc=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc --prefix=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf" and "make".
- /configure worked, but make gives me this weird error.
I also tried copying all included files from ncurses to the libraries/terminfo folder, but that also didn't work. I think the mistake is somewhere in the building process, but i'm not exactly sure, so thats why i'm posting this bug.
Does anyone have an idea about that?
PS: i also made sure that i met the prerequirements mentioned in https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Preparation/Linux and https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/CrossCompiling
