Building axiom from source fails on my Fedora Core 3 system at the
following:


36 making /home/cfm/spad/axiom/mnt/fedora3/doc/src/boot/typrops.boot.dvi from /home/cfm/spad/axiom/src/boot/typrops.boot.pamphlet
40 making /home/cfm/spad/axiom/mnt/fedora3/doc/src/boot/tytree1.boot.dvi from /home/cfm/spad/axiom/src/boot/tytree1.boot.pamphlet
44 invoking make in /home/cfm/spad/axiom/src/boot with parms:
SYS= fedora3

Not very informative to me.

It seems to have finished building gcl. Since there is a binary
for FC3, someone must have built it successfully.

GCLOPT setting? --Sun, 20 Mar 2005 21:42:55 -0600

Chuck,

There is a variable in the Makefile.fedora3 called GCLOPTS. It should read:

GCLOPTS="--enable-vssize=65536*2 --enable-locbfd --disable-dynsysbfd \
         --disable-statsysbfd --enable-maxpage=128*1024"

Please check this and let me know the result.

It seems to work if you use 'setarch i386 -X make' instead of just make.
Looks like the execstack problem again. Until gcl is fixed, there seems
to be no other way around.

with September source I have the same problem (still on FC3)
I try to use 'setarch i386 -X make' in vain!

===================================================================
FAQ 36: Axiom won't build on FC3
===================================================================
You need to turn off dynamic library load point randomization.
As root do:

echo 0 >/proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield


===================================================================
FAQ 37: Axiom won't build on FC4
===================================================================
You need to turn off dynamic library load point randomization.
As root do:

echo 0 >/proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space

or do

setarch i386 -R make axiom




FC3 --unknown, Sat, 28 Jan 2006 10:49:53 -0600

Tried the echo 0>.....
It didn't help; perhaps I need to reboot?
The setarch ...-X make also failed. 
I can make a batch file that's to prove the above if needed, but it's the randomized sbrk still failed.



Resolution fedora fc3 --rrogers, Fri, 03 Feb 2006 13:46:36 -0600

As I mentioned elsewhere
Kerenl 2.6.12 ...  would not build even with echo... or setarch
Kernel 2.6.11-1.35_FC3  allowed a build without any fixes

Roy,

Can you post the console trace of the failing axiom build
from the 'make' until the failure?

I can't imagine why there is a kernel issue except that
perhaps one has SELinux enabled by default and the other
does not.

Sure I will do it tomorrow, but it's the old sbrk thing that wouldn't cler with the other kernel.

Building axiom  fc3  etc... compile listings. --rrogers, Sat, 04 Feb 2006 16:33:46 -0600

Tim,
You will the make outputs at http://www.plaidheron.com/ray/temp
together with the batch file used to generate them.
BTW: My browser crashes on some searchs, and the listing indicates some errors together with missing NAG files.  Should I try to fix the errors?

Ray,

If you can find the cause of the hyperdoc crashes that would be most 
useful.

previous hyperdoc bug reports --Bill Page, Sun, 05 Feb 2006 12:35:50 -0600

See #153 #168 #236

Note in particular solution to the libdb.text problem in #153



Building axiom  fc3 -- Browser --rrogers, Sun, 05 Feb 2006 13:49:54 -0600

This is fun?
I found solution #153 on my own (should have looked here first).
BTW: you have several old libdb.text floating around that don't get undated; and confuse the issue.
int/algebra   has the right time stamp
Strangness:  after I did the copy, browse barfed on the libdb.text lines having dInteger
For instance Brose-> Integer->Documentation
Looking around I did cut and pastes for those lines (which is how I reached the conclusion)
Upon pasting the lines back they seemed to work??  
--- 
and of course there is another problem...
Sometimes hyperdoc (?) complains and dies    "NIL is not of type STREAM."
For instance: Browse -> Integer -> Operations
Ah well, I looked through the FAQ but found nothing.  Perhaps I will poke around some more.

Severity: serious => minor 
Status: open => need more info 

I would think that FC3 is no longer a mainstream
supported OS; so how important is this report.
Also, I think that this problem has been
solved in all systems based on axiom.build-improvements, e.g.
OpenAxiom and FriCAS.
