Description of problem:
gcc-3.2.3-52.x86_64 can't compile a proper EMBOSS-3.0.0 version
stock gcc-3.4.3 is ok
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. tar xzvf EMBOSS-3.0.0.tar.gz
3. cd EMBOSS-3.0.0 ; ./configure; make
[tru@bobo EMBOSS-3.0.0]$ ./emboss/embossversion
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[tru@sillage EMBOSS-3.0.0]$ ./emboss/embossversion
Writes the current EMBOSS version number
That can very likely be application bug, the fact that it passes with one
compiler and doesn't with another one doesn't say anything, the program can
still be in undefined code territory.
For a bug to be filed here, you need to debug it yourself and only if you prove
it is compiler bug, you need to create a (small) self-contained testcase and
attach it here.
Alternatively, if you have Red Hat support contract, you can deal with it that
For what it's worth, the same behaviour is observed on 3.6beta version
I will try to come up with a shorter testcase.
