Comment 3 Mirko Langisch 2014-01-31 09:48:24 UTC

it's impossible to build with sse2 disabled (and sseN enabled), because of these shared macros

> these shared macros

As I read it from the URL you posted, the build fail if ssse3 in enabled, and sse2 disable.

In the current case, ssse3 is disabled and sse2 is enable.
Comment 5 Mirko Langisch 2014-02-04 09:33:36 UTC
Sorry, Bertrand, i overread that you actually had sse2 enabled m(

I was looking for a bug like the one i hit, and it looked familiar on the first glance
Comment 6 Thibaud CANALE 2014-07-09 09:16:38 UTC

Any update about those errors, please?

I wonder, why are VP8 and VP9 in the same package/code? Is there anyway to disable VP9 meanwhile the bug is fixed?

Thanks for support.
Comment 7 Denis Dupeyron (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-07-21 16:28:24 UTC
Current git HEAD also does not compile with the same errors. This is intriguing because 3 weeks ago there was a commit for an x32-related fix in build/, and I assume they at least built it to verify.

As a test I tried to build libvpx with no CPU flags or just mmx to get rid of the sse2/sse3. In this case it fails with "not a valid base/index expression" assembly errors while building third_party/libyuv/source/scale.c. Then enabling sse requires sse2 so you get the errors mentioned by posters above.

The funny thing, and maybe a clue, is that even with ssse3 disabled it still complains it can't find some ssse3 references.

This is annoying because libvpx is a hard dependency of any recent firefox, and chromium isn't supported on x32.

Comment 8 Chase Rayfield 2014-09-29 00:34:58 UTC
I was able to build libvpx-9999 with USE="threads" and without the assembly optimisation flags... so it can built no reason to set it as a blocker for firefox etc... It would be nice to have those optimisations though.

Second build.log

I am getting a slightly different error (yasm not found), but I guess the idea is the same.
Comment 10 Dainius Masiliūnas 2016-02-24 11:06:59 UTC
After manually emerging yasm (this should really be required in the ebuild), I got the same errors as in the OP. The workaround in Comment #8 works for 1.4.0 too: as long as ssse3, sse2, sse and mmx are turned off, emerging libvpx succeeds. I didn't need to disable sse3 (but maybe because it's not actually used).

That's a much different error. Report a new bug for that.

All right then, reported as bug #575588.

    media-libs/libvpx: add 1.11.0
    Notably now forcing specific targets only where we
    know libvpx works well and otherwise using
    the generic implementation due to
