i am having trouble producing an executable on openbsd i386 with fasm.
this is my simple code:
Code:
   format elf
   public a_00
   
   section '.text'
a_00:
   mov eax, $01
   push $00
   push eax
   int $80

   section '.note.openbsd.ident' align 2
   dd $08, $04, $01
   db 'OpenBSD', $00
   dd $00
    


i am linking the file like this:
Code:
fasm myfile.fasm 
ld.bfd -e a_00 -nopie -n --strip-all --static -o myfile myfile.o
    


Program does not run. It segfaults.
Whats the correct way to build an openbsd executable on i386?[/code]

BTW, does openbsd require gcc or clang to be compiled or have the decency to allow a clean iso c89/c99 compiler (with probably the gas assembler) to do so?

For instance, linux requires nearly the latest gcc extensions in order to be compiled. Yes, this is sad.

Im not sure about OpenBSD, I use FreeBSD. (also your program is missing a RET)

Code:
; cc -m32 asm.o -o asm
; cc is a link to clang, FreeBSD use llvm toolchain.
format elf
public main
extrn printf
section '.text' executable
main:
push _freebsd
call printf
add esp,4
ret

section '.data' writeable
_freebsd db 'FreeBSD', 0Ah, 0
    


edit:
here is a version without C functions:
Code:
; cc -m32 asm.o -o asm
format elf
public main

section '.text' executable

main:
mov eax,4
push 9
push _freebsd
push 1
push eax
int 80h
add esp,10h
ret

section '.data' writeable
_freebsd db 'FreeBSD', 0Ah, 0
