Bug #6355


arm-linux build test suite fails: on : /lib/ruby/1.9.1/arm-linux/digest/ [BUG] Segmentation fault

Added by stevegoobermanhill (stephen gooberman-hill) about 10 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.2p136 (2010-12-25 revision 30365) [arm-linux]


build test suite fails

  • first claims that a file which exists is not found
  • then throws a segfault

I suspect that this may be an issue with the test suite as if I run the test on it's own, ruby claims that the file cannot be found and exits cleanly with a LoadError. Still, I'm not sure that ruby should segfault.

Kind regards

At first, please try Ruby trunk.

If the problem still occurs, could you please create a patch yourself?
There is no arm maintainer unfortunately.

If your patch looks simple and benign for other platforms, we may import it.

Please close - identified as a missing linux library dependency.

The following script finds missing library dependencies


lib_list=find . -name *.so.split("\n")
lib_list.each do |lib|
ldd_out=ldd #{lib}
missing=ldd_out.split("\n").collect{|x| x=~/=> not found/? x : nil }
puts lib unless missing.empty?
missing.each{|x| puts ' '+x}

kind regards,
