Added by Sam Saffron 11 months ago. Updated 9 months ago.

Target version:-
ruby -v:2.0.0 p195 Backport:1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


sam@ubuntu:~/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p195$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 3.8.0-19-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 17 18:16:28 UTC 2013 x8664 x8664 x86_64 GNU/Linux

sam@ubuntu:~/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p195$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) 4.7.3

compile steps:

checkout p195 directly from the tag (also tested with download)

./configure --prefix=/home/sam/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p195
make install

sam@ubuntu:~/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p195$ bin/ruby
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Lost on how to continue debugging this, it is telling me the executable is not valid.

Newbie error

compiling ruby with --prefix set to pwd leads to this mess. it should probably fail the build earlier instead of this rather hard to debug issue.

#2 Updated by Steve Klabnik 9 months ago

I have attached a patch that disallows --prefix set to pwd, but I am not an autoconf master. It works for me, but I'm not sure if there is a better way.
