Building glibc-2.5 Error


This has been driving me crazy. It takes so long to make glibc on my single board computer so this has made it even worse not being able to figure this out.

Normally I can figure these kinds of errors out, but google is offering very little help. I have had so many errors building this and I have encountered one that I can't seem to fix.

When I try to compile this, it gets through almost all of it, but then displays this:

Quote:
collect2: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed]
make[1]: *** [/usr/john/glic-2.5-build/libc_pic.os] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/john/glibc-2.5'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

John

Is that the exact error message you are quoting? I notice the first error line has "glic" - shouldn't that be "glibc" or is it simply a typo?

Yea this was the exact message. I later noticed that the directory I was working in was glic-2.5-build (typo), but that shouldn't have been a problem.

I have started over and I'll see how this goes.

I figured out what the problem was. In case anyone has the same problem, I had to enable a swap partition using swapon.

Any idea whether that would also apply to people having larger amounts of RAM (like 2GB or more)?

Btw, which distro are you using? I know glibc tends to take a tremendous amount of time to compile but it gets much faster using ccache and tmpfs.

I would not think it would apply to people with large amounts of ram, but it wouldn't hurt just to see if the error fixed itself with a small swap partition.

I'm using a small distro designed for a small audience called Voyage Linux (http://linux.voyage.hk/).

Never heard of that one. You must be right that it's for a small audience. Is it something that stands on its own or is it based on anything else? As I said, if it's Gentoo based, you should be able to compile much faster by using ccache and tmpfs.
