Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2013-07-01 07:47:14 EDT
While building systemtap, pdf/ps documentation is generated.  On ARM, some condition appears to cause ps2pdf / gs to abort.

Are you able to attach the input file, langref.ps?

langref.ps from x86-64 box

I don't have access to the ARM box or its build tree leftovers.  Here's a possibly-equivalent one from an x86-64 build (git://sourceware.org/git/systemtap.git, cd doc/, latex...dvips on langref.tex).
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2013-07-01 09:02:27 EDT
Thanks.  I'll see if valgrind shows up anything suspicious.

In the mean time, I've built ghostscript-9.07-7.fc20 -- could you please retry with that?
Comment 4 Frank Ch. Eigler 2013-07-02 12:48:34 EDT
Thanks, Tim, the arm builders went farther this time.  They failed later on, with an odd error message, as though something went wrong with the font<->file mappings.  I don't know whether this could be a gs bug or something wrong with the many FOO-fonts rpms that supply the .pf[ab] files.
