Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 493141
cannot build emacs from srpm
Last modified: 2009-04-06 04:29:53 EDT
Description of problem:
This looks suspiciously like BUG174736. It affects the current emacs for F10, as well as emacs-23 snapshots I've tried from Emacs CVS.
When I build emacs from srpm, it fails sometimes with a segfault when running bootstrap-emacs. It fails pretty consistently if I try to build the emacs SRPM using mock.
/bin/sh: line 2: 14800 Segmentation fault EMACSLOADPATH=/builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-22.3/lisp ../src/bootstrap-emacs -batch --no-site-file --multibyte -l autoload --eval '(setq generated-autoload-file "/builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-22.3/lisp/loaddefs.el")' -f batch-update-autoloads $wins
I'm attaching a backtrace to the bug report; it appears that the solib static constructors are stumbling over the malloc implementation built-in to emacs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Often (not always). Currently my system is failing consistently in mock.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 337387 [details]
gdb backtrace from emacs
I rebooted my system, now mock is working again. Yay?
I reserve the right to re-open this the next time the bug prevents me from building a future emacs snapshot...
