Building Ruby 1.8.6 on AIX 5.3L miniruby segfault

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Vincent Legoll, Feb 29, 2008.

  1. Hello,

    I'm trying to get build ruby 1.8.6 on AIX 5.3L but am having problems
    (the same happens with 1.8.6p111 or cvs-stable-snapshot)

    I've search the ML archives, tried what is explained in:
    http://homepage.mac.com/cjgibbons/rubyonaixhowto/t1.html

    it is still crashing...

    make: *** [.rbconfig.time] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I configure with:

    -bash-2.05b$ ./configure --with-openssl-dir=/opt/freeware
    --with-zlib-dir=/opt/freeware --with-readline-dir=/opt/freeware
    --prefix=/home/build/bin/ruby --disable-ipv6

    I tried variations of the above, for example, with only --prefix

    I tried to include as much info as I could imagine being useful, sorry if
    this is too much, please ask for more...

    Tell me if I'm doing something wrong.

    I had no problem getting the same version built for Solaris 9,
    HPUX 11.23 and linux...

    the backtrace was always in ruby_options, called from main, see below...

    I got miniruby's command line options with "make -n"
    but the same segfault (same line) happen without command line params...

  2. Hello Vincent,

    Did you do any additional steps other than configure and make?
    I mean, at least, I was able to compile ruby 1.8.6p111 on AIX 5.3
    using gcc 4.2.3.

    I just issue these commands after extracting the tar ball.
    % ./configure --with-openssl-dir=/opt/freeware
    --with-zlib-dir=/opt/freeware --with-readline-dir=/opt/freeware
    --prefix=$HOME/r186p111 --disable-ipv6

    % make

    % make install

    % ruby -v
    ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [powerpc-aix5.3.0.0]

    % gcc -v
    Using built-in specs.
    Target: powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0
    Configured with: ../gcc-4.2.3/configure --prefix=/home/kanemoto/gcc423
    --enable-shared --enable-threads=aix --enable-languages=c,c++
    Thread model: aix
    gcc version 4.2.3

    % oslevel -s

    I'll retry with a 4.2.3 compiler...

    Thanks
