Description

When attempting to run make on either the 3.0.5 or 3.1.3 release, I get the following error (I included the whole output as it's pretty short):

Both Ruby 3.0.4 and 3.1.2 build without error and pass (all but one of) the make check tests.

I know RHEL 7 is getting to be pretty old; I suspect a factor here are the ancient build tools available to me. But... EOL for Ruby 2.7 comes before the one for RHEL 7, so I'm trying to prioritize.

I could reproduce on CentOS 7 and confirmed to fix nobu's patch.

Updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh) over 1 year ago

I investigated why our CI server for CentOS 7 could not find this problem. In short, this problem only occurs on tarball.

This problem occurs when gcc -std=gnu11.
The CI server uses ./autogen.sh to generate configure script. Because the old autoconf on CentOS 7 does not know -std=gnu11, the generated script does not produce -std=gnu11.
On the other hand, the configure script in tarball is generated by the new autoconf, so it adds -std=gnu11, which causes a problem.
I want to add CI for tarballs, but it would require more computing resource (and human resource).

From here, I found a simple workaround: ./configure cflags="-std=gnu99". Just FYI.

Updated by werebus (Matt Moretti) over 1 year ago

Thanks everyone,

I can confirm that adding cflags="-std=gnu99" to the configure step worked around my issue. Re-running ./autogen.sh on the server in question also worked.

Updated by eviljoel (evil joel) about 1 year ago

@hsbt (Hiroshi SHIBATA), @nagachika (Tomoyuki Chikanaga), and @nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada), despite the release notes, this was not successfully backported to Ruby 3.2 in Ruby 3.2.2. I've attached a Dockerfile that proves it. Assuming you have Docker installed, run the file with:

docker build --file ruby322BuildFailure-20230404.Dockerfile .

You should get output:

@eviljoel (evil joel) Can't you share the generated config.log and config.status files?

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 1 year ago

BTW, off topic:
You can check the checksum more simply.

RUN echo "4b352d0f7ec384e332e3e44cdbfdcd5ff2d594af3c8296b5636c710975149e23 *ruby-3.2.2.tar.xz" | sha256sum -c

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 1 year ago

The gcc on CentOS7 is based on old 4.8.5 and its C11 support seems half-baked, i.e., _Thread_local storage class is not supported.

Updated by eviljoel (evil joel) about 1 year ago

@nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada), attached are the requested files. I also included files for Ruby 3.1.4 and 3.0.6. All three versions reported this was fixed but all three versions get the same build error.

I agree that GCC 4.8.5 has incomplete C11 support, but I want to remind you that this is a regression for Ruby 3.1 and 3.0. Ruby 3.1.2 and Ruby 3.0.4 build fine on CentOS 7. It would also be nice if Ruby 3.2 supported building on CentOS 7.

Would a better solution be to just revert to using Autoconf 2.69?

Concerning checking the SHA256SUM, geeze, that was obvious. Thanks for the tip.

From here, I found a simple workaround: ./configure cflags="-std=gnu99". Just FYI.

I can confirm that adding cflags="-std=gnu99" to the configure step worked around my issue. Re-running ./autogen.sh on the server in question also worked.

Just a notice/heads-up that when modifying CFLAGS you need to remember to keep optimization flags "-O2"/"-O3".
Failure to build Ruby with optimizations was observed to cause a multi-fold performance decrease when CRuby is operated under production-level loads (in Rails).

E.g., when building CRuby 3.x using Rbenv on CentOS 7, the proper command would be:

$ RUBY_CFLAGS='-std=gnu99 -O2' rbenv install 3.0.6
