Summary of the bug:

While compiling FFMpeg 1.2.1 (gentoo ebuild) using GCC 4.8.1 on my Odroid-U2 I get a compilation error.

How to reproduce:
I've set CFLAGS to "-O3 -pipe -march=armv7-a -mcpu=cortex-a9 -mfpu=neon -mfloat-abi=hard" and enabled NEON. I get the following error during compilation:

I've tried compiling without NEON support, making sure to specify -mfpu=vfpv3 in the CFLAGS, but that changed nothing (I did verify that FFMpeg configured itself with NEON support disabled).
I also tried, because of the '-Waggressive-loop-optimizations' warning, to compile with '-fno-aggressive-loop-optimizations' but that didn't change anything either.

What's interesting, though, is that when I enabled THUMB support (-mthumb) compilation completes without any issues and I get a perfectly functioning FFMpeg.

FFMpeg compiles just fine, for all these CFLAGS variations, on GCC 4.7.3 as well as GCC 4.6.4.

Please test current git head and please post your configure line, then run "make ffmpeg" (and see the compilation error), then run "make V=1" and post the console output of the last command. (Please do not post the console output of the first make call.)

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by cooper

Test against GIT HEAD results in succesful compilation.
Whatever was going on in 1.2.1, it's apparently been fixed since.

This issue can be closed.

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by cehoyos

Could you find out which change fixed compilation? We could backport the change to release/1.2.

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 4 years ago by dwkang

I found that this happens in gcc 4.8 on Android. There is no 'CORE_REGS' in 4.8.

  • Cc dwkang added

Replying to dwkang:

I found that this happens in gcc 4.8 on Android. There is no 'CORE_REGS' in 4.8.

Then please find out which commit fixed the issue in newer versions, so we can fix it in future 1.2 releases.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by cooper

Given the discovered reasoning, I'm guessing this one:

comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by cehoyos

Could you test if backporting that patch to origin/release/1.2 fixes the compilation problem?

$ git checkout origin/release/1.2
$ git cherry-pick -x 8067f55e

I have tested that the backport works, I can't test compilation here.

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by dwkang

Verified the patch resolves the issue.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Will be fixed in FFmpeg 1.2.6, thank you for the report!
