I found out what was breaking the compile :
I was setting -mcpu=r4600 -mips2. If I leave this off
everything compiles OK, but now the code isn't
optimized for the processor and does run slower ( of
I also noted that if I use :
I get the error :
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/cca007591.o: ISA mismatch (-mips3)
with previous modules (-mips1)
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/cca007591.o: uses different e_flags
(0x102) fields than previous modules (0x2)
Bad value: failed to merge target specific data of
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Which I totally don't understand because I never set
mips3 I set mips2.
I am coming to the conclusion that :
the egcs-1.03a compiler as found on the sgi web site
only supports mips 1.
Can someone confirm or deny this ?
If that is so, how does anyone compile native mips2
code ? You have to build your own compiler / libraries
If anyone has / knows of an egcs-1.03a or higher
compiler capapble of compiling mips2 I'd really like
to hear from them.
