Description tmroy 2005-04-14 06:52:36 UTC
When I try to emerge the latest version of gettext, it segfaults.
Note that this is a symptom of something else, as segfaults will also
occur on other compiles/emerges such as perl.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -v gettext

Actual Results:  
ranlib .libs/libgettextlib.a
(cd .libs && rm -f && ln -s ../

Sounds like you've broken hardware (bad ram, overheating box,...).
Comment 3 tmroy 2005-04-14 07:55:39 UTC
I can't even compile a new kernel!

The funny thing is, it works like a champ from the live cd ...
including compiling kernels.  
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-04-14 21:43:18 UTC
if the livecd kernel works then why dont you try copying that to your install and boot with it

then see if things still keep segfaulting
