Description Matthew Smith gentoo-dev 2022-01-01 14:44:32 UTC
This bug is to track packages that do not build with the sys-devel/mold linker.
Comment 1 Marco Scardovi (scardracs) 2022-01-04 06:28:33 UTC
I've talked with the author of mold and he pointed me out to this sheet. He already tries to build packages from gentoo repo and these are those who fails:
Comment 2 Alex Buell 2024-02-22 17:27:42 UTC
app-emulation/virtualbox-7.0.14-r2 apparently has issues linking. The symptom is:

alex@cobalt ~/.VirtualBox $ VirtualBoxVM --startvm "MS-DOS 6.22"
VirtualBoxVM: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib64/virtualbox/",) failed: /usr/lib64/virtualbox/ undefined symbol: _ZN8QPrinterC1ENS_11PrinterModeE
alex@cobalt ~/.VirtualBox $ c++filt

This issue went away when I disabled use of mold for this application. Just thought you'd want to know. 

Many thanks,

x11-apps/igt-gpu-tools also segment faults in intel_gpu_frequency if linked with mold. Works just fine without mold.

Please file individual bugs and have them block this one.
