Prebuilt toolchains for WRLinux 5.0.1 RCPL

Released: Sep 15, 2015     Updated: Sep 15, 2015


# All old toolchains are removed from WRLinux 5.0.1 RCPL image
In order to reduce the RCPL upgrading size and time, we remove all the old prebuilt toolchains in WRLinux 5.0.1 RCPL 30 ( and subsequent RCPLs, only keeping the newest toolchain. The installing size of an entire product (from RCPL 0 to RCPL 30) is down to 30GB. Comparing the original size is 171GB. The reduction is 141GB.


# Always keep the newest toolchain in WRLinux 5.0.1 RCPL image
We always keep the newest toolchain in RCPL. For example, currently, the newest toolchain 4.6a-148 (installdir/wrlinux-5/layers/4.6a-148) is in Once a new toolchain (4.6a-149) is released, we will replace the 4.6a-148 with 4.6a-149 in next RCPL.


# Impacting
Before the change, when you configure with a RCPL, the buildsystem select the corresponding toolchain.
After the change, if the corresponding toolchain can't be found, buidsystem will select the newest toolchain.

Toolchain is a complete layer, which doesn't depend on any other layer, so it is safe to build the newest toolchain with an old RCPL. And we real recommend you use this build combination.


# How to know if I use the correspoinding toolchain or the newest toolchain?
When you configure a project with a WARNING message at the end of configuring process, like
