Description Keith Landry 2004-10-16 18:20:08 UTC
Tried various flag combiniations, all failed with the same error if -03 was specified:

!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

Replacing -O3 flag with -O2 allows build to complete.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add -O3 to CFLAGS
2.emerge mythfrontend

Actual Results:  
Build failed

Expected Results:  
Build succeeds

Patch for mythfrontend-0.16.ebuild to replace -O3 with -O2
Comment 2 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2004-10-16 20:42:20 UTC
It worked for me on -O3 on a Pentium4. Try some of your other flags.
Comment 3 Keith Landry 2004-10-17 11:31:00 UTC
Ahh I se now, thanks. 

Are you using GCC 3.4 and/or -march=pentium4?

On my systems (backend compiling mythtv/frontend compiling mythfrontend) it seems to be whenever -O3 is combined with -m(arch/tune)=(pentium4/pentium4m).

Any other pentium arch flag works (pentiumpro, pentium3, etc.) 

I can also reproduce by unpacking the mythtv tarball and:

adding -march=pentium4 to OPTFLAGS in config.mak (it already had -03)
make qmake
make -C libs/libavcodec -j7 

Hope im connecting the followng dots correctly.

Doing some poking aroung on the ffmpeg/mythtv lists it appears to be a gcc bug (;#88243

ffmpeg won't change it beacuse it would break compatability with gcc 2.9.5:

And ffmpeg compiles is it doesn't use -fPIC when building:;#78694

I unpacked ffmpeg, ran configure, added -DPIC -fPIC -march=pentium4 (-O3 was already there) to the config.mak file and same exact errors. 

Changing -O3 to -O2 compiled with no errors. Putting -O3 back and removing -march=pentium4 gets no error.
