- Subject: objcopy failure with /dev/null
I'm running a kernel build on an old system, with objcopy 2.11.93. One
of the make commands is:
objcopy -I binary -O binary --gap-fill 0xff --pad-to 0x200000
This issues a warning (unknown architecture), but succeeds and creates
the output file.
I need to move the build to a slightly newer system, with objcopy
2.15.92. The command exits with status 1, doesn't produce an output
file, and issues another warning (objcopy: Warning: '/dev/null' is not
an ordinary file).
Any ideas on how I can fix/workaround this?
