Thanks for response. Following are specific change I'm talking
about. Compilers are not expected to create .rodata.str1.1,
.rodata.__func__ and .rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__. If compiler
decide to use some other .rodata__ suffix name in place of __func__,
__PRETTY_FUNCTION__ or str1.1, it breaks the compilation.
As you can see someone already taken out that check from SeaBios
mainline, but 188.8.131.52 still has. As a result of this assumption,
whenever I try to build SeaBios with Intel Compiler it Fail because
Intel compiler uses some other character in place of
__PRETTY_FUNCTION__ and __func__. It will be great if you can
incorporate this fix in released version.
I made that change as part of commit e5749978. The change was part of
a feature enhancement (compiling with -fno-merge-constants).
Is this the only thing preventing compilation on the Intel compiler?
Typically a feature enhancement such as e5749978 would go into the
next release, and we're likely a month or so out from the next
As Peter mentioned in another email, it should be possible to checkout
a git version using the hash instead of a tag name in the interim (eg,
"git checkout 9f505f71").
