Description

16 years ago
I rebuild Mozilla every couple of days from the FTP site's nightly extract. This
is the set of commands I run:

#!/bin/bash
#Download and compile the latest version of mozilla.
export
PATH=/usr/bin/colorgcc:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:.
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export HOME=/home/root
export CFLAGS="-O3 -march=k6"
export CXXFLAGS=$CFLAGS
cd /usr/src
rm -rf mozilla
cd downloads
rm mozilla-source.tar.bz2
wget --quiet
"ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-source.tar.bz2"
cd ..
tar -jxvf downloads/mozilla-source.tar.bz2
cd mozilla
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-nls --disable-debug --enable-toolkit-gtk
--with-gtk --enable-crypto
make
chown -R jlm.misc *

I clicked on the "upcoming steps" link near the top of the mozilla.org web page
and my CPU's usage went to 100% and mozilla just hung. I'm running Linux 2.4.17
on an AMD k6-2 with 768megs of ram, 60 gigs of space and glibc 2.2.4.

The error is reproducable. Each time I've clicked on the link I have had to kill
mozilla.

worksforme with linux build 20020502

level 3 optimization has known issues (bug 53486) unless you're using gcc3

if you add "-g" to your CFLAGS, you can use gdb to generate a stacktrace that
would help identify what's going on

Ok, I've recompiled and my optimizations are -g -march=k6 instead of -O3
-march=k6 and in fact it does work. I'll report all bugs against this
configuration now.
