Ruby on AIX 5.3


#1

Hi all-

I was wondering if anyone has gotten Ruby 1.8.3 to build/run on AIX.
I’m using GCC (xlC is not available) and all seems to be okay until:

gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c struct.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c time.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c util.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c variable.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c version.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c ./missing/flock.c
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c dmyext.c
ar rcu libruby-static.a array.o bignum.o class.o compar.o dir.o dln.o
enum.o error.o eval.o file.o gc.o hash.o inits.o io.o marshal.o math.o
numeric.o object.o pack.o parse.o process.o prec.o random.o range.o
re.o regex.o ruby.o signal.o sprintf.o st.o string.o struct.o time.o
util.o variable.o version.o flock.o dmyext.o
gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -c main.c
gcc main.o libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt -lm -o miniruby -g -O2
make: *** [.rbconfig.time] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Thanks for any info,

Ron

What happens with 1.8.4 preview2?
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.8/ruby-1.8.4-preview2.tar.gz

gcc main.o libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt -lm -o miniruby -g -O2
make: *** [.rbconfig.time] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Can’t you show the backtrace?

Same problem with 1.8.4:

Here’s the gcc info

Using built-in specs.
Target: powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0
Configured with: …/gcc-4.0.0/configure --disable-nls
Thread model: aix
gcc version 4.0.0

I am very willing to help debug this problem. I will work on it myself
but i don’t want to duplicate anyone’s effort or work on what is really
an operator (i.e. me) problem.

Thanks,

Ron
