Issues with edk2 compilation with xcode5 on mac OS - files compiled but strange behaviors

Daniele Crudo

Sorry I missed the edk2-devel in cc, resending.

OK so the DEBUG and RELEASE both build with -Os. This is firmware things have to fit in the ROM. The big difference between DEBUG and release is the DEBUG prints get stripped out, so that usually means timing issues :(. 

The compiler flags live in  BaseTools/Conf/tools_def.template and you can edit them in Conf/tools_def.txt

ok, thanks for this, I was hoping in optimization issue but it seems it's not the case (?)

What logo are your talking about? I see the TianoCore logo failed in your macOS debug log as I would expect [1]d:
"HII Image Package with logo not found in PE/COFF resource section”
I don’t see that error message in the kali log, so that matches what I would expect. 

Yes, I was referring to the tianocore logo; I was writing that in the kali compiled log there are additional lines relating to tftpDynamicCommand.efi and LinuxInitrdDynamicShellCommand.efi, which are not in the mac compiled log.

It sounds like you are talking about a logo coming from your Hackintosh EFI boot shim? Or the macOS booter?
This is all the Hackintosh stuff that is loading.

Yes, I know and this is expected behavior, I was not referring to that logo.

There was some work on a CLANGPDB toolchain that worked on all platforms. 

Thanks for this, I rapidly had a look at the github page; so these commands:
$ cd edk2
$ git clean -ffdx
$ git reset --hard
$ git submodule deinit --force --all
$ git checkout edk2-stable202008
$ git checkout CLANGPDB
$ git submodule update --init --force
$ source
$ export CLANG_BIN=~/my/local/path/to/clang+llvm-9.0.0-x86_64-darwin-apple/bin/
$ build -a X64 -b RELEASE -p OvmfPkg/OvmfPkgX64.dsc -t CLANGPDB

will let me install the clang 9.0 toolchain in my mac os and build edk2 with that toolchain?

So it sounds like you have some kind of graphics issue on a RELEASE build? What happens if on a RELEASE XCODE build you just boot to the UEFI Shell?

Maybe I misunderstood, but I cannot boot to a shell, as soon as I type "virsh start mymv" the screen goes black (with hdmi unplugged).
