Description Dave Andruczyk 2002-10-26 19:38:02 UTC
Long standing issue, on my box, had it since installed Gentoo 1.2  Hadto turn my
MAKEOPTS to "" so it wouldn't try a parallel build which breaks every time with
mozilla.  With the following fault my system was set to MAKEOPTS=" -j3" (Dual
proc Athlon MP 1.2 Ghz)

Excerpt follows from build:
make[1]: Entering directory
gcc -o Linux2.4_x86_glibc_PTH_OPT.OBJ/nsinstall.o -c -O2 -fPIC -DLINUX1_2 -Di386

!!! ERROR: The ebuild did not complete successfully.

As before if I switch my makeopts to NOT use -jx mozilla should build as did
previous releases when "-jx" was removed from MAKEOPTS(still waiting for it to

It doesn't need an SMP machine to fail: just having -j2 in MAKEOPTS causes the 
reported build failure.  It just failed in 2 out of 2 attempts for me.
Comment 2 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 14:34:42 UTC
-j2 works ?
Comment 3 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 14:47:57 UTC
Comment #2 was for Dave Andruczyk.

As for Comment #1, -j2 works for me all the time (Pentium 4  2.4Ghz) .. do you
have SMP ?
Comment 4 Dave Andruczyk 2002-10-29 16:27:01 UTC
Yes I have an SMP box,  Dual Athlon 1.2Ghz (MP Processors)

-j2 or higher causes the build failure on my (SMP) machine.
Comment 5 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-08 15:09:14 UTC
This seems to be a problem with the NSS stuff.  Try mozilla-1.2.1 or later,
as it should be fixed there.  Please let me know ...
Comment 6 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-25 20:57:15 UTC
Should be fixed; no traffic.
