Description urcindalo 2012-12-16 23:05:48 UTC
I'm in the process of recompiling my scientific software with icc. So far so good, except avogadro.

After recompiling many packages, including *every* dependency for avogadro v1.0.3-r1 or v1.1.0 (according to the ebuilds), avogadro recompiles well but I can no longer launch it, even if it is compiled back with gcc instead of icc.

Here is the error I'm seeing:
$ avogadro

Segmentation fault

I know this info is not very helpful, so I will be happy to provide you with as much info as you may need. I just don't know where to begin.

Thanks in advance.

After some trials I found the culprit: openbabel-2.3.2

When the latter is compiled with icc, avogadro fails with a segmentation fault at launch time. But, if I recompile openbabel with gcc, even though the rest of the dependencies and avogadro itself are compiled with icc, avogadro launches well.

I also tried to recompile openbabel dependencies with icc, one at a step, but inchi fails this way:

I don't know if this info is relevant and I imagine it deserves a bug by itself, but I just say it here for completeness purposes.

Thanks for the report.

Although we are trying to officially provide compilers other then gcc, the priority of fixing incompatibilities is quite low.

Could you please attach a icc build build.log of openbabel?
