I've been able to reproduce this using the FC5 rpm. This is mostly likely an
issue with the beehive build environment, as building frysk from cvs or srpm
locally does not result in the same issue. For the time being I would recommend
one of these options until this is sorted out. More info on building from cvs at

Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2006-02-06 20:54:30 UTC
add upstream tracker

Comment 3 Adam Jocksch 2006-02-06 21:01:13 UTC
Correction: The FC5 rpm built locally from the srpm also seems to crash, but not
immediately. Building from CVS is the best way to run frysk at this time

Comment 4 Andrew Cagney 2006-02-08 17:14:27 UTC
There appear to be two problems here:
- something killing frysk out-right
- something causing gc to hang, the latter bug's added to this's dependencies
(also doing same upstream)

Comment 5 Adam Jocksch 2006-02-09 18:31:35 UTC
A new rpm has been pushed through beehive that should fix this problem.

Comment 6 Andrew Cagney 2006-02-13 19:43:41 UTC
The instant crash is understood to have been a transient problem with the build,
fixed with the push through of the latest GCJ compiler.
