Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2011-08-12 08:43:41 UTC
-O1 or -O2 and no crash. 

Interestingly this gets built (since 2000) with gcc as a special case in the OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice build. i.e. that at some point before 2000 it probably crashed an ancient gcc.

Comment 2 Nick Clifton 2011-08-12 16:07:40 UTC
Hi Caolan,

  Please try binutils-  You will probably get an error message like this:

   epptso.o: relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.rodata' can not be 
     used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
   epptso.o: could not read symbols: Bad value

Which may not be what you are expecting, but I believe that it is correct.  At least the linker should not seg-fault now.


Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2011-08-12 16:18:26 UTC
I probably should have said that
g++ -O0 -fPIC/-fpic -std=c++0x -Wl,--dynamic-list-cpp-typeinfo -shared -o libfoo.so epptso.ii
died as well with the original

but its of no matter to me, removing the archaic -O0 workaround for some other ancient bug was sufficient to build, so probably won't trigger it again one way or the other.

Comment 4 Michele Baldessari 2011-11-15 22:21:49 UTC
Hi Nick,

just as a confirmation: with binutils- compiling OOo doesn't segfault any more at all

thanks a lot and regards,
