Description craigl 2001-03-09 15:54:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i586)

i have been trying to compile the openh323 source code for a few days now. 
eventually, after working through all sorts of memory problems, i have
finally managed to get gcc to crash the way i saw it crash once.

i was just doing a normal compile, and i get the crash output listed in the
'actual results' area.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get pwlib_min_1.1pl19.tar.gz & openh323_1.1pl1.tar.gz from
2. untar in your home directory ( required for some reason )
then execute the following commands:
3. cd ~/pwlib/
4. make both
5. cd ~/openh323/
6. make opt

i get the crash when it is compiling h245_3.cxx
this is the fourth or fifth file though, and two of the prior ones take a
_very_ long time to compile ( > 9 hours on my p-100 w/ 64MB RAM ).

Actual Results: 
/usr/include/g++-3/iomanip.h: In method `void 
H245_H223AL1MParameters::PrintOn (ostream &) const':
/usr/include/g++-3/iomanip.h:56: Internal error: Segmentation fault.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-09 16:13:28 UTC
Can you please rerun the g++ command line on h245_3.cxx with the options which
result in the segfault with additional -save-temps -v options and attach here
h245_3.ii it creates (and mention the actual g++ command line used)?

Comment 4 V Lakshman 2001-04-27 21:15:22 UTC

I got a gcc crash when compiling a file (I compiled again with --save-temps and
have attached it to this bug report).

Note: the program compiles fine under the CVS g++-3.0 branch and is okay under
g++-2.95.  So, two possibilities:

 1. A problem in gcc that was fixed between 2.96 and 3.0
 2. A kernel/swap problem in RedHat 7.1


Comment 5 V Lakshman 2001-04-27 22:01:47 UTC

I did some testing. I found that gcc would crash on the same non-comment line of
file __regardless of which line it was___ i.e. I commented out a block of code
just before the point gcc crashed with " #if 0 ... #endif " and sure enough,
gcc crashed immediately after the #endif.

Somehow, gcc can not handle the size of the file maybe? The RedHat 7.1 machine
I am building on has only 64MB memory.


Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2001-04-28 19:21:53 UTC
No, the issue is related to old-style ABI mangling of
DimVal < 0 - so, 0 - mo, -1 - to, 0 - co >
(particularly -1 - to).
It does not happen on gcc-3.0 branch because it uses completely different mangling,
and does not happen in 2.95.x because the bug was introduced during development
after 2.95.x was branched off.
I made a patch which seems to work, will include it in gcc-c++-2.96-83.

Hi all,
   I've update the gcc to 2.96.85 following the instruction in redhat support,
   But I still encounter the segmentation fault while compiling mysql, can 
anyone tell me how to fix it? It can be compiled in redhat7.0 without error...
