perl-5.12.0-122.fc14 fails to build with a similar error, the latest perl package known to build is perl-5.10.1-118.fc14

Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-07-07 12:25:02 UTC
It's failing not only on s390. It failed also on my laptop with glibc-2.12-2.x86_64. The build of perl-5.12.1 pass in koji in rawhide, where is glibc 2.12.90. I'm investigating whether the problem is with glibc or in perl.

Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2010-07-08 11:44:10 UTC
The s390 build failed with glibc-2.12.90-4.
Andreas, any idea what's going on here ?

Comment 5 Andreas Schwab 2010-07-08 14:44:25 UTC
Fix the memory corruption.

Comment 6 Karsten Hopp 2010-07-08 19:57:05 UTC
This looks like a completely different problem and probably isn't even a memory corruption. I suspect something is going wrong in the self checks and the buildroot perl gets executed with LD_PRELOAD libperl.so from the new perl. 
I was able to build perl-5.12.1 without the selfchecks and then could build the real perl-5.12.1 with the temporary perl packages (those without the self checks).

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

Comment 8 Iain Arnell 2011-02-04 16:29:11 UTC
There are lots of perl builds in s390 koji since last July, including perl-5.12.1-123.fc14. Presumably this can simply be closed.

Comment 9 Marcela Mašláňová 2011-02-07 08:40:33 UTC
It couldn't be built probably because of test, which needs current perl build, but it was using buildroot's perl5.10 build. This is often bug with new release and I have no idea, which one made this problem this time.
