Description Stephen Torri 2001-10-17 00:44:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.10 i686)

Description of problem:
G++ reports an internal compiler error. The message comes when it tries to
compile DomainS.cpp in the $TAO_ROOT/tao/Domain directory.
It fails at the function: get_domain_policy_skel (TAO_ServerRequest &, void
*, void*, Environment&). The error message reports a problem in
scan_region, at expect.c:2809. It gives no more information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download ACE+TAO.tar.gz from ace.cs.wustl.edu
2. Export ACE_ROOT to where ever ACE+TAO is installed (e.g.
4. cd $ACE_ROOT/include/makeinclude
5. ln -s platform_linux.GNU platform_macros.GNU
6. cd $ACE_ROOT/ace
7. ln -s config-linux.h config.h
8. cd $ACE_ROOT
9. Edit $ACE_ROOT/include/makeinclude/wrapper_macros.GNU to have the
following after the big comment section at the start of the file:
 exceptions = 1
 optimize = 1
 threads = 1
 debug = 0
10. make
11. make install
12. cd $TAO_ROOT/tao
13. make (Installation will eventually come to DomainS.cpp and crash

Actual Results:  g++ -W -Wall -Wpointer-arith -pipe -O3 -Wno-uninitialized
-DACE_USE_RCSID=0 -DACE_HAS_EXCEPTIONS    -I/usr/src/ACE_wrappers/TAO  -c
-fPIC -o .shobj/DomainS.o DomainS.cpp
DomainS.cpp: In function `void 
POA_CORBA_DomainManager::get_domain_policy_skel (TAO_ServerRequest &, 
void *, void *, Environment &)':
DomainS.cpp:558: Internal compiler error in scan_region, at except.c:
Please submit a full bug report.
See <URL:http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/> for instructions.
make: *** [.shobj/DomainS.o] Error 2

Expected Results:  Compiled fine and did the rest of the TAO source code.
Sorry if that seems obvious but I didn't expect anything else.

Additional info:

Bug is reported to ACE+TAO via their bugzilla.

The workaround for this bug is to upgrade the Red Hat version of gcc.

The instructions for this workaround are here:

Close this report.

As you haven't attached preprocessed testcase, I can only guess.
To me this looks very much like
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48835 (or 53728),
so please try gcc-2.96-9[89].

Comment 3 Stephen Torri 2001-10-17 14:22:04 UTC
gcc-2.96-99 cleared the problem.
