Comment 1 Dave Johansen 2014-08-14 14:56:03 UTC
From looking at the code, this looks like it's an issue in the exception_ptr.h not having a #include of <typeinfo> even though it uses the class type_info.

Just for completeness, 3.4.2 is in the testing repo for EPEL6 right now and you could see if using the newer version resolves the issue, but if not, then I think that this bug needs to flow upstream to either stdlibc++ or clang.

Comment 2 Michael Lampe 2014-09-08 21:39:03 UTC
"Clang's C++11 mode can be used ... with gcc's libstdc++, but patches are needed to make libstdc++-4.4 work with Clang in C++11 mode." (http://clang.llvm.org/cxx_status.html, http://clang.llvm.org/libstdc++4.4-clang0x.patch)

Comment 3 Dave Johansen 2014-09-10 04:13:25 UTC
The above patch is for libstdc++ and not llvm/clang, so it would need to be submitted to that package for it to be included in RHEL.

Comment 4 Michael Lampe 2014-09-10 14:05:40 UTC
Yes, the above links are only meant as additional info. I doubt there is a chance to get this in, because it doesn't seem to affect the system compiler.

Comment 5 Michael Lampe 2014-10-21 01:10:49 UTC
Seems fixed in 6.6: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1061435
