Description Susi Lehtola 2009-05-27 11:49:41 EDT
Build of towhee fails due to

{standard input}:280865: Error: operand out of range (0x0000000000008008 is not between 0xffffffffffff8000 and 0x0000000000007fff)

both on F10 and F11 on ppc64 architecture, see


The object files that are to be linked are 13k and 82k on x86_64 architecture, so it shouldn't fail on too big a file.

On EL5 the package builds fine (no ppc64 architecture).
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:39:11 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2009-06-16 11:15:09 EDT
Try -mminimal-toc or splitting the sources.  It is not about size of object files, but a TOC section overflow.
Comment 3 Susi Lehtola 2009-07-22 18:38:40 EDT
-mminimal-toc doesn't work. I've excluded ppc64 for now. Closing.
