Issue with Yocto toolchain

I have compiled the yocto toolchain using :

To create the folder build for bitbake or prepare the environnement:

MACHINE=imx6sxsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build

Build the toolchain image

$ bitbake meta-toolchain

Browse to


Build the toolchain:

./fsl-imx-x11-glibc…sh   or source fsl-imx-x11-glibc…sh    <—pas sure

Setting environment variables


$ source environment-setup-cortexa9hf…..

Compiling hello test

$CC hello.c

and it works but I would like to compile libjpeg so I tried

./configure --host=arm-linux $CC

aaron@aaron-X550CA:~/jpeg-9b$ ./configure --host=arm-linux $CC

configure: WARNING: you should use --build, --host, --target

configure: error: unrecognized option: `-march=armv7-a'

Try `./configure --help' for more information


CC is :

arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc -march=armv7-a -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=neon -mtune=cortex-a9 --sysroot=/opt/fsl-imx-x11/3.14.52-1.1.0/sysroots/cortexa9hf-vfp-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi

I then tried

./configure --host=arm-linux CC=arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc

aaron@aaron-X550CA:~/jpeg-9b$ ./configure --host arm-linux  CC=arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc

Hello Aaron Padilla,

Are you still having issues compiling? I found some suggestions on building from the multimedia codecs sources on the following thread. It's not specific for your configuration but maybe it could help.
