From build.log:
`_GLOBAL__sub_I_Threads' referenced in section `.init_array' of CMakeFiles/stockfish.dir/thread.cpp.o: defined in discarded section `.text.startup[_ZNK10ThreadPool4mainEv]' of CMakeFiles/stockfish.dir/thread.cpp.o
`_GLOBAL__sub_I__ZN3UCI4loopEiPPc' referenced in section `.init_array' of CMakeFiles/stockfish.dir/uci.cpp.o: defined in discarded section `.text.startup[_ZNK10ThreadPool4mainEv]' of CMakeFiles/stockfish.dir/uci.cpp.o
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

This seems to be an issue [1] with linkage of boost. Please try to rebuild boost because of the bump to gcc [2].

Comment 2 Jonathan Wakely 2018-07-20 08:59:34 UTC
Why do you think this is related to Boost? The symbols given in the errors are nothing to do with Boost, and the GCC bug you reference was fixed seven years ago.

Comment 3 Jonathan Wakely 2018-07-20 09:02:34 UTC
Stockfish doesn't even depend on boost! This has nothing to do with Boost at all.

Comment 4 Raphael Groner 2018-07-20 16:26:31 UTC
Okay and thanks for looking into this issue. Sorry for any useless confusion. Taking this bug back.

Comment 5 Raphael Groner 2018-07-26 06:08:43 UTC
Magically fixed in rawhide. I would really like to know what happened.
