Compiling ImageMagick for FC4 on Cell

Post by rockypg » 2006-08-30T02:01:27-07:00

Hi

Im trying to cross compile Image Magick for FC4 on IBM's Cell Processor. I am using ppu-gcc. I specifically need to be able to read and write bmps and jpgs at the pixel level and write back files from pixel data. I disabled most of the options that are available at the configure level.

I get some linker errors with "rpl.realloc"

I disabled

Code: Select all

#define realloc rpl_realloc
from the configure script as suggested on this thread
http://redux.imagemagick.org/discussion ... e5735d256f

and I am able to cross compile and use the static libraries to compile further code using magick and wand APIs. Now by disabling

Code: Select all

#define realloc rpl_realloc
what am I losing out on?

Should I expect specific problems with certain APIs ?

You are losing nothing by disabling rpl_realloc. It has nothing to do with ImageMagick and is an artifact of the GNU configure scripts.
