can't assemble simple .asm file to .rdf format
« on: December 24, 2018, 08:32:20 PM »
rdf is badly broken when assembling on windows.  When will this be worked on.  I reported this over 2 years ago.

test.asm
section .text

C:\Compilers\x64\nasm>nasm c:\Users\johnk\OneDrive\Desktop\test.asm -o c:\Users\johnk\OneDrive\Desktop\test.rdf -f rdf
c:\Users\johnk\OneDrive\Desktop\test.asm: panic: rdf segment numbers not allocated as expected (2,4,6)

I may have to get the source code and try to fix it myself.  Any pointers on where to look in the code to fix this problem.
John

It would be easier for someone to help you if you provide some source code that demonstrates the problem.

Hi Debs,

He did provide source code. That's it.

I sympathize with his situation. Better to report it to bugzilla than here. He is apparently the only  user interested in rdf   (Why, John?). It is apparently a low priority. Compare last working version with current to see what changed,

Good Luck,
Frank

I explained this last year in my other posts.  I am writing my own OS. and I was using rdf but I am using elf now.  It is not that important, I just thought that this was a simple problem to fix but if it is to hard or not worth anyone's time to fix this problem then don't worry about it.  I did put this on Bugzilla last year.  I am doing my OS. development on a windows machine which makes it harder but I have gotten a gcc cross compiler and linker and it works.
