Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131411
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem: bug reported when compiling kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora core 2 - not yet updated
1 install fedora core 2
2 run make xconfig
3 run make clean
4 run make bzImage
5 run make modules
-- the bug below showed up when make modules was finished
Steps to Reproduce:
CC [M] net/ipv6/sysctl_net_ipv6.o
In file included from include/linux/icmpv6.h:144,
include/linux/netdevice.h: In function `netif_tx_disable':
include/linux/netdevice.h:909: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla> for instructions.
The bug is not reproducible, so it is likely a hardware or OS problem.
make: *** [net/ipv6/sysctl_net_ipv6.o] Error 1
make: *** [net/ipv6] Error 2
make: *** [net] Error 2
I did not change any kernel parameters in xconfig other than those
related to the processor type and other parameters in that tree, e.g.
- memory, etc.
This is not related to make at all, it is the compiler that is crashing,
and as the bug is not reproduceable, it is almost surely because of
I assume if you retry it will crash on some completely different
file and line.
