Description Claus Olesen 2004-04-01 01:23:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
gcc aborts prematurely when linking with libjvm.so

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc version 3.3.3 20040311 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-3)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a minimal c program named abc.c, for example
int main()
  return 0;

Build the program, linking with libjvm.so (allthough not needed), using the command
gcc -L/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/lib/i386/server -o abc abc.c -ljvm

That's it.

Actual Results:  collect2: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault]

Expected Results:  gcc should have produced executable abc and printed no messages.

Additional info:

Redhat 9 does not exhibit this problem. Still, maybe the problem instead is with libjvm.so.

It is apparently the linker, not gcc that segfaults.
What exact version ofbinutils do you have?
Comment 2 Claus Olesen 2004-04-01 02:36:35 EST
rpm -qa | grep binutils 
ld -v 
GNU ld version 20040326 
Comment 3 Claus Olesen 2004-04-08 22:35:14 EDT
As workaround I downgraded from binutils- to 
binutils- After that ld as invoked by gcc complained 
that "-as--needed" is unrecognized. This appears to be a new option 
passed from gcc to ld. I did not downgrade gcc but left it at 
gcc-3.3.3-6. Instead I edited out "-as--needed" and "--no-as-needed" 
in /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/specs. Don't know if 
that's valid. But with this the problem appears to have vanished.

I don't see this problem in binutils- (FC2).
