• smapi error update

    From Rick Smith@1:105/10.1 to All on Sun Apr 11 14:32:36 2021
    Greetings All!

    I have completed testing, it appears that the smapi error only happens 1 after retrieving mail through a poll, 2 on 64bit arm.

    I have tried 32 bit arm works just fine
    I have tried 64 bit arm of the following distros, manjaro,debian and ubuntu they all produce the smapi error after first poll and receipt of pkts.

    The only difference that happened in testing was the debian and ubuntu trial I had to set perl=0 in order to compile hpt, the manjaro 64 bit perl=1 and built fine.

    Not being a programmer, in fact very little knowledge of the subject but 11 installs in 24 hours tells me that perhaps its a problem with 64bit arm?

    Try to append

    -mstructure-size-boundary=64

    to OPTCFLAGS in your huskymak.cfg.

    You may also try
    -mstrict-align

    -mstructure-size-boundary=64

    to OPTCFLAGS in your huskymak.cfg.

    I added this

    # C-compiler: optimization
    OPTCFLAGS=-c -s -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -fstrength-reduce -fPIC -mstructure-size-boundary=64

    got this during build

    gcc: error: unrecognized command-line option ‘-mstructure-size-boundary=64’ make: *** [Makefile:43: adcase.o] Error 1

    You may also try
    -mstrict-align

    I added this

    # C-compiler: optimization
    OPTCFLAGS=-c -s -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -fstrength-reduce -fPIC -mstrict-align

    Packages built, smapi error returned.

    Do you build on your rpi or on a PC? What version of gcc do you use?

    Yes I build it right on the pi itself, and I have version gcc version 10.2.0 (GCC) installed.

    I see. There is a possibility that some bug in the code manifests itself only on a 64-bit ARM device. If some owner of such a device finds the bug, it can be fixed. But I am not inclined to buy a Raspberry Pi just to see whether there is such a bug or not, sorry.

    In the meantime, you may use a 32-bit OS.

    Bummer... I would donate a Pi if someone were inclined to research it, I do not possess such abilities but like hpt enough to contribute to the cause.

    Both of you could think about if a remote ssh session would be an option.

    In the meantime, you may use a 32-bit OS.

    You could use qemu to emulate an (virtual) aarch64 machine (or an raspberry)

    https://futurewei-cloud.github.io/ARM-Datacenter/qemu/how-to-launch-aarch64-vm/

    or someone could set it up and give you remote access.

    Id give him ssh access to a pi if he was so inclined to work on it.
