when i switched to linux 2.6.11 version of include/linux/etherdevice.h the compiler no longer ice'd.
i upgraded to rawhide gcc4 to see if fixed, but no.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download ipw2100-1.1.0.tgz
2. compile against linux 126.96.36.199 headers
i can email preprocessed source if need be. bugzilla wont let me attach it.
Created attachment 116192 [details]
permissions issue i think, can i send now?
I get this error as well, with 2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 and gcc (GCC) 4.0.0 20050519
(Red Hat 4.0.0-8). I have contacted the author of ipw2100 as well.
FYI, applying the patch from http://bughost.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=703
(ipw2100 Bugzilla) makes this compiler error go away for me (FC4,
kernel-2.6.12-1.1387_FC4, gcc-4.0.0-8). Of course, I think the compiler crash
is still a bug, but this may be a workaround to get ipw2100 compiled. I haven't
actually tested the resulting driver yet.
Well, that patch is not a workaround, but fix, the source is otherwise not valid
C. The ICE is tracked upstream.
gcc-4.0.1-3 in rawhide properly issues an error about this bug.
