Test build of GCC v6.1.0 for OS/2
« on: May 01, 2016, 11:17:42 am »
Hi All,

I built GCC 6.1.0 for eCS and OS/2 - it can be downloaded from http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-6.1.0-os2-20160430.zip

Feedback appreciated!

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Paul
Thankz for this newer build, great to see it's still be buildable for OS/2  ;)

Hi Elbert,

Thankz for this newer build, great to see it's still be buildable for OS/2  ;)

Interestingly, this was one of the easiest updates in some time. The diff applied very cleanly. I still need to review winnt.c for any changes that may aid us too - but it seems to work OK so far :)

Cheers,

Paul

Thanks Paul!

I will make donation. Maybe other people can also consider doing this as well... If it was not for people such as Paul we would have a pretty dead platform!
Having a current GCC compile is pretty damn important!

Hey Andy,

Thanks Paul... were you successful in getting Go to work?

I wasn't with the previous version of GCC, however, KO came up with some thread enhancements that might help things - I'll give it another crack when I get some free time.

Cheers,

Paul

Test build of GCC 6.2.0 is at http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-6.2.0-os2-20160925.zip
might need libcx 0.3.1 from https://github.com/bitwiseworks/libcx/issues/15

Feedback appreciated,

Paul
