Hi Kevin,

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 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.

Layoutrom.py file check for

From SeaBios mainline (layoutrom.py): 

180	    rodatasections = getSectionsPrefix(sections16, '.rodata')
193	    rodatasections = getSectionsPrefix(sections32seg, '.rodata')

From (layoutrom.py):

178	    rodatasections = (
179	        getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.str1.1')␊
180	        + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.__func__.')
181	        + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__.'))

194	    rodatasections = (
195	        getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.str1.1')
196	        + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.__func__.')
197	        + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__.'))

Can you post the error that you are seeing?

We just tagged rel- and it included all the build bug fixes that I know of.  There are changes to scripts/layoutrom.py between
rel- and the current master branch, but none of those changes were thought to be bug fixes.


PS - please post in just plain text (no html) in the future.
