EDK2 WilsonCityRVP BIOS Build Error


Akber Basha J
 

Team,

We are getting build errors while trying to build BIOS for Intel WilsonCityRVP under WhitleyOpenBoardPkg platform.

Toolchains used:
GCC: 5 and 7 (getting same error for both GCC5 and GCC7)
IASL: 20211217
OS: Ubuntu-20.04-LTS
Source: Latest EDK2 "master" source is being used for compilation.

All pre-build tests has been run successfully.

With the above-mentioned toolchains, we could successfully able to build BIOS images for TigerlakeURVP platform. But for WhitleyOpenBoardPkg, errors are thrown.

Error screenshot has been attached with this mail for reference.



Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Akber

Hi Akber,

 

It looks like you are trying to build without using the MinPlatform build script. Please try building using the following:

 

cd edk2

source edksetup.sh

cd ../edk2-platforms/Platform/Intel

python ./build_bios.py -p WilsonCityRvp

 

Thanks,

Nate

Hi Akber,

 

Is the error in the build log the same as before? The build script should resolve the issue of CPUTARGET being undefined.

Akber,

 

I just sent a patch with some GCC build fixes.  https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/89450

There are more fixes needed.  In the meantime, this workaround procedure worked for me:

 

export WORKSPACE=~/src

export EDK_TOOLS_PATH=~/src/edk2/BaseTools

 

cd ~/src/edk2

 

make -C BaseTools

. edksetup.sh BaseTools

 

cd ../edk2-platforms/Platform/Intel/

python build_bios.py -p WilsonCityRvp -t GCC5 -d

 

The problem as I currently understand it is that the pre_build_ex board specific extension is being run before the edk2 build environment is set up by the build_bios.py script.  The workaround effectively creates the environment needed to perform the pre-build steps.

I will confer with Nate on the correct fix for this.  It seems like we might need another extension point after ed2 build environment and before main build, but maybe there is a more elegant solution.

 

Also note that there has been an initial report of a binary compatibility issue between the FSP binary and the gcc built bootloader.  At this time it is not expected to boot properly.  The issue reported was only with enabling a second SATA drive.  But if there is a binary compatibility issue in the API, any number of things might be incorrect functionally with GCC built edk2 WhitleyOpenBoardPkg bootloader.

Isaac

Update:
After commenting the function FspPcdListLibNull in file WhitleyFspBinPkg/Library/FspPcdListLibNull/FspPcdListLibNull.c, the error got resolved.

Seems its defined and unused, hence the warning as error.

Subject: [edk2-devel] EDK2 WilsonCityRVP BIOS Build Error

Team,

 

We are getting build errors while trying to build BIOS for Intel WilsonCityRVP under WhitleyOpenBoardPkg platform.

 

Toolchains used:

GCC: 5 and 7 (getting same error for both GCC5 and GCC7)

IASL: 20211217

OS: Ubuntu-20.04-LTS

Source: Latest EDK2 "master" source is being used for compilation.

 

All pre-build tests has been run successfully.

 

With the above-mentioned toolchains, we could successfully able to build BIOS images for TigerlakeURVP platform. But for WhitleyOpenBoardPkg, errors are thrown.

 

Error screenshot has been attached with this mail for reference.

 


 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Regards,

Akber

Hello Issac,

When trying to boot the generated BIOS image on WisonCityRVP platform, we are getting only blank screen.

Any debug suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Akber

Hello Issac,

Thank you for your time and help.
Yes, the patch is working fine for both JunctionCity and WilsonCityRvp.
I will boot it on WIlsonCityRvp. If got any issues, will let you.

Regards,
Akber

Akber,

 

I just sent a patch with some GCC build fixes.  https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/89450

There are more fixes needed.  In the meantime, this workaround procedure worked for me:

 

export WORKSPACE=~/src

export EDK_TOOLS_PATH=~/src/edk2/BaseTools

 

cd ~/src/edk2

 

make -C BaseTools

. edksetup.sh BaseTools

 

cd ../edk2-platforms/Platform/Intel/

python build_bios.py -p WilsonCityRvp -t GCC5 -d

 

The problem as I currently understand it is that the pre_build_ex board specific extension is being run before the edk2 build environment is set up by the build_bios.py script.  The workaround effectively creates the environment needed to perform the pre-build steps.

I will confer with Nate on the correct fix for this.  It seems like we might need another extension point after ed2 build environment and before main build, but maybe there is a more elegant solution.

 

Also note that there has been an initial report of a binary compatibility issue between the FSP binary and the gcc built bootloader.  At this time it is not expected to boot properly.  The issue reported was only with enabling a second SATA drive.  But if there is a binary compatibility issue in the API, any number of things might be incorrect functionally with GCC built edk2 WhitleyOpenBoardPkg bootloader.

 

Regards,
Isaac

Hello Nate,

Yes. The error is same, relating to CPUTARGET.

I have followed the steps exactly you shared.

Hi Akber,

 

Is the error in the build log the same as before? The build script should resolve the issue of CPUTARGET being undefined.

 

Thanks,

Nate

Thank you for your response.

 

Build is still getting failed after trying the steps you have mentioned.

Hi Akber,

 

It looks like you are trying to build without using the MinPlatform build script. Please try building using the following:

 

cd edk2

source edksetup.sh

cd ../edk2-platforms/Platform/Intel

python ./build_bios.py -p WilsonCityRvp

 

Thanks,

Nate

Oram, Isaac W
 

Most commonly this has been because of a microcode mismatch with the populated processor.  Update edk2-non-osi/Silicon/Intel/WhitleySiliconBinPkg/IcxMicrocode with microcode matching a successfully booting image and rebuild.

 

Less common, but possibly helpful is taking your existing, booting RVP binary image, and using a hex editor to replace the BIOS region of the 64MB image with the 16MB BIOS binary image built.  Replace 0x03000000 to 0x03FFFFFF with the 16MB O:\Build\WhitleyOpenBoardPkg\DEBUG_VS2015x86\FV\WILSONCITYRVP.fd

Ensure you have BootGuard disabled and considerations like that.

 

We have occasionally seen issues with variants of WilsonCity HW that aren’t currently functional in the open code.  If microcode doesn’t correct the issue, we can share logs and hardware details privately and see if we can’t identify the issue from a working log.

 

I installed WSL with Debian and I was able to build and boot successfully.  I think that you are past these issues, but here are some config details just for your reference.

gcc version 10.2.1 20210110 (Debian 10.2.1-6)

Python 3.9.2 (default, Feb 28 2021, 17:03:44)

NASM version 2.15.05

Intel ACPI Component Architecture ASL+ Optimizing Compiler/Disassembler version 20200925
