With obvious similarity with Bug #3971...

Even after upgrading all the egcs-1.1.2-17 packages
with contained Jeff Law's patches...

gprof will core dump on ANY g77 compiled FORTRAN.
cat "         END" > tmp.f
g77 -pg tmp.f
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

After reading Bug #3971 I'm assuming it's an egcs
problem, but it could be in gprof itself (binutils).
Comment 1 Jim Kingdon 1999-08-08 09:08:59 EDT
One needs to compile gprof (binutils) with egcs 1.1.2-17.
Or in other words, it doesn't matter (for this bug) what
your program is compiled with, just what gprof was compiled
As far as I know, we haven't made a fixed binutils package yet.
Comment 2 niles 1999-08-08 17:47:59 EDT
Agreed, once I re-built the binutils package using the new
egcs; gprof started worked fine.  So probably mark this as
a duplicate of Bug #3971 and close it.  But, you really should
release a new binary of binutils.
Comment 3 Jim Kingdon 1999-08-27 12:30:59 EDT
Please try binutils- which should be in the next Rawhide
Comment 4 Jim Kingdon 1999-08-30 13:45:59 EDT
Correction, the fixed binutils package is binutils-
