#8754 closed defect (worksforme)

menuconfig option to turn on software floating point doesn't work brcm47XX

Reported by: Brian Capouch <brianc@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: FPU Cc:


Building trunk (r25242): menu screen "Advanced configuration options" subscreen "Target options"

Option "Use software floating point by default" is star-checked.

Build, however, doesn't seem to turn it on. The only way I could get it to go was to change target/linux/generic/2.6.XX,


I'm not smart enough to fix it myself. Once upon a time it worked.

You misunderstood the option. It enables software floating point in the compiler/toolchain.

The kernel FPU emulator can only be enabled through make kernel_menuconfig.
