Description Michael Schwendt 2005-04-28 13:18:24 UTC
This package failed to rebuild for FC4 Development around 2005-04-11 after an automated release bump. Build failure logs at: http://fedoraproject.org/extras/development/build-logs/
Comment 1 Toshio Kuratomi 2005-05-09 18:44:21 UTC
gcc bug. Posted: http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=21291 Looking into the workaround posted there.

Created attachment 114218 [details] Workaround gcc asm constraints bug This seems to work. Compiled in development mach and tested that it produces correct output when used with a simple big number application. (Changed the example in the README from factorial to a sumnorial/"subnorial" and ran it.)
Comment 3 Toshio Kuratomi 2005-05-10 19:25:47 UTC
Proceedure: 1) Figured out that gcc-3.4 was able to generate proper assembly for this but gcc-4 was not. 2) Found that gcc-4.0 is apparently not properly trying to use memory where it can when it runs out of registers. 3) Examined the gcc-3.4 code for the variables it assigned to memory rather than registers. 4) Began changing the constraints for those variables from reg-or-memory to memory until we had enough free registers to compile the asm template.
Comment 4 Toshio Kuratomi 2005-05-23 01:20:22 UTC
With this patch and the one referenced in Bug #154708 ocaml compiles, and runs. It compiles lablgtk and unison without with some minor work done to update lablgtk (and no work done on unison.) unison is running without issues thus far on both i386 and x86_64. I'm going to go ahead and commit changes and request a build.
Comment 5 Toshio Kuratomi 2005-05-26 11:02:49 UTC
Ocaml 3.08-5 has been built. I'm going to go work on the lablgtk bug and then kick off a unison build. This bug can most likely be closed and if there are issues with ocaml, a new bug opened.
Comment 6 Toshio Kuratomi 2005-05-26 11:07:36 UTC
FYI: I didn't submit this patch upstream as it seemed to be due to a gcc4 bug. They may be interested in it anyway (The referenced gcc4 bug is about compiling ocaml). Go ahead and contact upstream if you feel they'd be interested.
Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2005-05-26 11:23:01 UTC
Yes, primary focus is on making the packages build for FC4. If it appears to fail at run-time somewhere later, that would be a new bug.
