Description Simon Raffeiner 2003-07-11 12:31:51 UTC
Sometimes when I try to install Software with emerge (Portage 2.0.48-r1 
(default-x86-1.4, gcc-3.2.3, glibc-2.3.2-r1)), the GCC (version 3.2.3 20030422 
(Gentoo Linux 1.4 3.2.3-r1, propolice)) reports random "Segmentation Fault" 
errors when preprocessing Header Files. The funny thing is that this does NOT 
always occur at the same Header file.

I don't really know where to locate the error because it could either be Portage 
itself, a buggy ebuild or the GCC. AFAIR the problem occurs since the last time 
the GCC was updated.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
emerge something, happened with vlc-0.6.0, xine-ui, winex, wine and some others
Actual Results:  
Segemntation fault by GCC

Expected Results:  
Compile and be quiet ;)

This is likely a hardware problem - please read bug #20600.
