Description yuubyou+rhbz 2005-05-13 14:47:38 UTC
Description of problem:
i386-redhat-linux-gcc32 feeds its 32-bit output to 64-bit gas.  This fails as
soon as it gets to `pushl %ebp' (i.e. very quickly).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 'int main() { return 0; }' > foo.c
2. i386-redhat-linux-gcc32 foo.c
Actual results:
/tmp/ccEN4RhT.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccEN4RhT.s:6: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `push'

Expected results:
No errors and a 32-bit a.out.

Additional info:
Line 6 is the first instruction, `pushl %ebp'.
Fails the same way with `i386-redhat-linux-gcc32 -m32'
Works with `gcc32 -m32'.

Comment 1 yuubyou+rhbz 2005-05-14 22:45:13 UTC
/usr/bin/g++32 fails similarly.
gcc32 is an x86_64 compiler, while g++32 is an i386 compiler.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2005-05-16 12:46:00 UTC
That is a bug in the x86-64/ppc comps.
compat-gcc-*.i386.rpm must not be included on x86-64, similarly
compat-gcc-*.ppc64.rpm must not be included on ppc.
Only compat-[^g]*.i386.rpm (resp. compat-[^g]*.ppc64.rpm) are meant to be
installed in addition to compat-[^g]*.x86_64.rpm (resp. *.ppc.rpm).

Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2005-05-16 18:21:06 UTC
I'm removing compat-gcc-* from the compat-arch-development group.
