Description Felix Leimbach 2006-09-26 12:02:56 UTC
Compiling module-init-tools-3.2.2-r1 on AMD64 with
CFLAGS="-march=k8 -O2 -combine"
dies with the following error right after the configuring stage:
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/module-init-tools-3.2.2-r1/work/modutils-2.4.27/util'

Compiling the same package with
CFLAGS="-march=k8 -O2"
completes just fine.

Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-09-26 13:05:18 UTC
So don't use it.
Comment 2 Felix Leimbach 2006-09-26 13:23:34 UTC
Ya I got that far, too :-)
Just wanted to point out that it is a canditate for filter-flags.
It would surely make the experience for gentoo users using this compiler flag smoother.

I for one decided to try it after reading a detailed post by Duncan about his choice of CFLAGS on the gentoo.amd64 newsgroup:

Following this thread some more people decided to try it, as can be seen here:

Feel free to close the bug if you feel it's not worth it.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-09-26 13:32:06 UTC
Considering that bugzilla search returns exactly 3 bugs w/ emerge --info using this flag, I don't think this it worth filtering.

I think you'll get a few more now that Duncan has publicised the flag on

Before raising my bug 149300, of course I searched for bugs on module-init-tools but this one didn't show up. Sorry for the duplication.

Then go bug Duncan. ;)
