[PATCH 0/2] kbuild: Fix install errors when INSTALL_PATH does not exist

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Zhang Bingwu <xtexchooser@xxxxxxxx>

When running 'make zinstall INSTALL_PATH=somepath'
 where 'somepath' does not exist, the install
 scripts (install.sh) print error messages
 but also return a success status code.
This will make 'make' regard 'install' (and 'zinstall', etc)
When there are also other targets at the same time,
 for example, 'make zinstall dtbs_install modules_install',
 make will keep going on and other outputs will fill stdout,
 and make the error message hard to find.

dtbs_install and modules_install creates the target directory
 if it does not exist. install, zinstall and others should
 have the same behaviour.

If INSTALL_PATH is not a valid directory, we should create it.
If the installation process still fails with errors, for example,
 insufficient space on disk or permission denied, make should regard
 the install target failed, stop as soon as possible,
 and exit with error.

Zhang Bingwu (2):
  kbuild: Abort make on install failures
  kbuild: Create INSTALL_PATH directory if it does not exist
