7.11. Silo-1.4.14

The Silo package contains the Sparc Improved boot LOader.

7.11.1. Installation of Silo

The following patch fixes compile issues:

patch -Np1 -i ../silo-1.4.14-fixes-3.patch

This sed allows us to compile the bin2h binary separately.

cp -v common/Makefile{,.orig}
sed -e 's@\$(PROGRAMS)$@programs\n\nprograms: &@' common/Makefile.orig > common/Makefile

Compile the bin2h and util binaries for the host.

make -C common programs CC=cc
make -C second util CC=cc

Overwrites the default value of gcc -m32 which will fail to compile on 64 bit targets. This is not to be confused with CC=${CC} below.

Compile the Silo package:

make CC=${CC} AS=${AS} LD=${LD} STRIP=${STRIP}

Install the package:

make DESTDIR=${CLFS} install

Details on this package are located in Section 10.93.2, “Contents of Silo.”
