Description Fedora Release Engineering 2019-02-11 22:30:19 UTC
mlton failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f30


For details on the mass rebuild see:

Please fix mlton at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
mlton will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 31,
mlton will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Dear Maintainer,

your package has not been built successfully in f30. Action is required from you.

If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate [1]. If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages [2], your package
can be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

Comment 5 Adam Goode 2019-04-27 15:39:36 UTC
ppc64le is broken during compile:
BUILDSTDERR: make[2]: *** [Makefile:128: mlton-compile] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Comment 6 Adam Goode 2019-04-27 16:00:36 UTC
Oh no this is also broken on f29:
BUILDSTDERR: make[2]: *** [Makefile:128: mlton-compile] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Comment 7 Adam Goode 2019-04-28 16:01:11 UTC
I regenerated the bootstrap sources after finding a possible bug. It worked in a scratch build:

But fails in non-scratch

I am trying a local build (very slow) now. I might just have to disable ppc64 for now,

Comment 8 Adam Goode 2019-04-28 23:51:53 UTC
The bootstrap sources were probably fine. The issue seems to be that mlton binaries run on POWER8 will segfault, but work properly on POWER9. The scratch builds seem consistently to run on POWER9 and succeed, the non-scratch builds on POWER8 and fail.

This is reproducible with qemu as well.

Comment 9 Fedora Release Engineering 2019-08-08 16:54:17 UTC
The following builds were made: mlton-20180207-12.fc31
