yasm-1.3.0

Introduction to yasm

Yasm is a complete rewrite of the NASM-2.11.05 assembler. It supports the x86 and AMD64 instruction sets, accepts NASM and GAS assembler syntaxes and outputs binary, ELF32 and ELF64 object formats.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 platform.

Installation of yasm

Install yasm by running the following commands:

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install
