Description Fabio Rossi 2020-06-01 07:10:05 UTC
I am attaching a shorter version of the full build log file. I suspect the issue is related to gcc-8 because the build succeeds with gcc-9

It is a gcc bug:

But I try to add a patch.
Comment 4 Fabio Rossi 2020-06-01 07:57:51 UTC
thanks for the link, as it's a gcc-8 regression probably it's better to patch gcc instead of chromium
Comment 5 Samuel Bernardo 2020-06-02 22:11:26 UTC
I have also the same error with gcc-8.
