Gcc 6 alpha Pale Moon 26.2.0 build with LinkTimeOptimization enabled

Post by Nheghathivhistha » 2016-04-06, 19:54

Hello.

I tried to build Pale Moon 26.2.0 with experimental gcc 6.
I had to use --disable-elf-hack and --enable-gstreamer=1.0 switches for configure/config.

It compiled and linked!

When started it segfaults with
Thread 1 "palemoon" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Are Pale Moon developers interested in the gcc LTO?

It failed to compile using -fno-lto -fno-use-linker-plugin with elf-hack both enabled and disabled using the same version of gcc-6:

I will try not to use USE=optimize with LTO enabled.
Thank you.

I use LTO on occasion when compiling my builds, and have never encountered an issue when using GCC 5.3. I've not tried it on any version below or above 5.*
