Description simon.greaves 1999-11-01 22:26:30 UTC
Hardware: Cyrix 6x86 PR200+, 64Mb RAM, 128Mb swap

I have been running RedHat on this box since (at least) 5.2,
very few problems. I previously had upgraded to 6.0 with no
real problems, I upgraded to 6.1 yesterday, no problems
during the upgrade.

I then tried to re-compile php and got serious problems with
egcs. During the make, I got seemingly random compiler
crashes, error was:

gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal

typing make again sometimes compiled a few more modules,
sometimes not.

I know errors of this type have been attributed to hardware
problems in the past, but I'm fairly sure that is _not_ the
case here. I noticed that the version of egcs is the same in
both RH6.1 and RH6.0, so I re-installed the older egcs
package using:

rpm --force -ivh egcs-1.1.2-12.i386.rpm

I then did a make clean and a make in the php directory and
it built without problem, so it looks like there has been a
change between egcs-1.1.2-12.i386.rpm and
egcs-1.1.2-24.i386.rpm which is causing problems (at least
for me :-).

I did not try to re-install the later version again, I will
do so and let you know if this fixes things (ie in case a
wierd dependency thing happened).

(There was a problem like this a few RedHat releases ago,
RedHat provided a special build of gcc/egcs to fix the

I use several 'real' pentiums here at work, currently
running 6.0, I may try upgrading one, though I'm a little
apprehensive as I cannot afford much downtime. I got the 6.1
distribution from as an iso image, md5sum was
ok, wrote it with Adaptec's Easy CD Creator on Win32, no

Any suggestions?
