Description Need Real Name 2001-01-29 21:56:56 EST
I  was trying to compile eispackd.c which is converted from eispackd.f
using f2c, and I got an Internal compiler error message:

gcc -Wall  -O3 -ggdb3  -funroll-all-loops -fomit-frame-pointer    
-DNDEBUG  -DCOMPLEX_VECS   -c -o eispackd.o eispackd.c. 

The eispackd.f is available at http://www.netlib.org/eispack.

The code will compile with g++ 2.91.66 compiler. I have already done the
most recent
update for glibc (RHBA-2000:132-05). Do you have any suggestions for the

Thank you very much.

Can you attach here preprocessed eispackd.i? You can get it e.g. by
gcc -Wall  -O3 -ggdb3  -funroll-all-loops -fomit-frame-pointer
-DNDEBUG  -DCOMPLEX_VECS   -E -o eispackd.i eispackd.c
(with preprocessed source I'm sure we're seeing the same thing).
I think it is most probably some dwarf2out issue triggered by
-ggdb3. If you attach the preprocessed source here, I'll try to debug

Ok, it is a dwarf2out bug, reproduceable with just -O3 -gdwarf-2.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-09-06 12:55:50 EDT
Oops, forgot to close this. It should be fixed since 2.96-81.

Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
