Description Matthew Gates 2005-02-19 09:22:06 UTC
When starting emacs-21.4 I get this error:

Fatal error (6).Aborted (core dumped)

USE flags as shown by "emerge -p -v emacs": 

app-editors/emacs-21.4 +X -Xaw3d* -debug +gnome -leim +lesstif +motif +nls -nosendmail

Compiling with -motif OR using +Xaw3d fixes the problem.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. build version 21.4 using +X -Xaw3d* -debug +gnome -leim +lesstif +motif +nls -nosendmail
2. run emacs

Actual Results:  
% emacs
Fatal error (6).Aborted (core dumped)


Expected Results:  
Shouldn't have crashed.

The problem started after a recent security update of openmotif:
http://www.gentoo.org/security/en/glsa/glsa-200502-07.xml which might be the cause?

This update also seemed to break my existing xephemeris install, but xephem was
repaired by a rebuild, emacs was not.

Comment 1 Mamoru KOMACHI (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-19 16:16:19 UTC
Yeah, motif is known to cause problems with some CFLAGS.
Workaround for it is to use another toolkit (for example, Xaw3d)
or disable motif, or build emacs with less aggressive CFLAGS.
Comment 2 bohux 2005-11-20 01:56:31 UTC
if USE="-lesstif" work, then this bug may be related to the bug: 112625. 
Comment 3 R Kelman 2006-07-23 00:36:09 UTC
I build with the following flags:
X motif nls -Xaw3d -leim -lesstif -nosendemail

and receive the same error, so it is not related to +lesstif
Comment 4 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-20 19:37:59 UTC
Set USE='-motif -lesstif'.  I don't think any of us have time to hunt around for the right CFLAGS/motif/lesstif combination unfortunately.
