Description Angela Kahealani 2005-09-06 02:23:10 UTC
Unable to report the error, as links2 won't let me paste in from the gpm buffer
the error messages which say don't report this error, report the top error,
which has of course scrolled off the screen

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Follow Stage 1 install instructions, emerge gpm, rsync, and I forget what
 2.emerge --update portage
3.emerge --update system

Actual Results:  
a compile error in a system library

Expected Results:  
give me an operational system capable of reporting an error

sorry, still can't paste from gpm buffer,
and not even close to having X11 running,
so I'm just completely screwed.

Sorry, without more info we can't help you much. Closing as NEEDINFO, reopen
once you can give us more info.

as many error messages as didn't scroll offscreen

gpm would paste into vi, so now have some error messages to reveal problem
Comment 3 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2005-09-06 02:51:23 UTC
That looks like a hardware problem ... gcc segfaults usually happen when the
hardware is faulty (cpu overheating, bad memory) or with insane CFLAGS.

Please try again to emerge glibc, if the same error happens I'll try to diagnose
it, if the error doesn't happen please check your hardware first.

emerge --info

emerge --info
Comment 7 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2005-09-06 04:14:27 UTC
I'm almost sure that the errors happen because of bad hardware. There's not much
we can do about it, closing bug. 

Comment 8 Angela Kahealani 2005-09-06 04:15:02 UTC
have now supplied all available error messages from gpm screen capture for both emerge --update system and for emerge --update world, and have also provided emerge --info for both... unless there is some other log file to attach to the bug report, I don't know what else to do... the system is only minimally usable in present state

Please, read comment #8 and the other bug. We cannot solve hardware problems.

Comment 10 Angela Kahealani 2005-09-06 04:18:07 UTC
If it's a hardware bug, it is most likely associated with the fact that the root filesystem resides on a RAID0 (striped) array of Seagate SATA drives which have driver issues in history being run from the SiI3112(a?) controller chip on the Asus A7N8X-E mobo, which although fixed in Fedora Core may not have been handled in Gentoo?
Comment 11 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-06 04:25:11 UTC
SiI3112 works in software RAID-5 over LMV2 for me on two machines, no problems
at all. We can't fix your faulty motherboard anyway.

Really CLOSED.
