- Subject: Weird problems when upgrading to 2.17
I have a GNU toolchain built for embedded PowerPC development (target =
The toolchain runs on Cygwin and consists of the following parts:
* Binutils 2.16.1
* Newlib 1.14
* GCC 4.1.1
Today I tried to upgrade to Binutils 2.17 but when using this to build
my target project I got the error message:
powerpc-eabi-ld: error: no memory region specified for
loadable section `.rela.dyn'.
I tried adding *(.rela.*) to the text section in my link script but the
result was not very good: (1) the map file now has a huge list of
"Discarded input sections", and (2) there is undefined references to
_SDA_BASE_ and _SDA2_BASE_.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do?
