To build the latest Cog VM with the ARM simulation plugins doesn't seem to work for me. I thought maybe I had dirty state, so I started from a clean clone (this is the current tip of the Cog branch, 60973ef):
$ git clone [hidden email] $ cd opensmalltalk-vm $ cd build.linux64x64/gdbarm32 $ ./conf.COG checking build system type... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu checking host system type... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu checking target system type... arm-unknown-linux-gnu checking for gcc... gcc checking whether the C compiler works... yes checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out ... checking for working strncmp... yes configure: creating ./config.status config.status: creating Makefile config.status: error: cannot find input file: `testsuite/Makefile.in' $ _
Is this the supposed way? Has anyone built ARM recently?
I build a fair amount of ARM code somewhat regularly on this machine, therefore I doubt this is some basic dysfunctionality of my dev environment.
My first reflex was to go and just hack into the problem, but if
it doesn't even go this far out of the box, then I'd expect I am
somehow wrong and I thought I'd ask before digging myself too deep
into the wrong direction. Also I've been having doubts, if these
configure scripts were broken, people would be complaining? does
anyone do ARM? (and by that I mean "develop the VM" for which you
need the simulator) Why isn't CI complaining? does CI only cover
Intel? does CI only cover production-packaging?

Hmmm. I build regularly but on MacOS. I’ve not had occasion to try win6; or linux64. Will try to have a look at this today.
Yep, it works on the Mac (I originally tried on Linux). I guess no-one seriously cares about gardening the ARM plugin on Linux. I can see that, given that for what I needed it (which is, for reference) the Mac version served me just fine.
The good news is that simulating REPL works fine on ARM, too. I
just committed GDB-bgs.4. Now, on to getting rid of the
TargetAware and its subclasses!
