Problem building python in virtual machine running centos

Hi,

I am trying to build python-2.4.5 on Centos 5.1, which is a virtual
machine running with xen.
I am not able to build python. The compilation crash with the following:
gcc -pthread -c -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I.
-I./Include -DPy_BUILD_CORE -o Objects/unicodeobject.o
Objects/unicodeobject.c
In file included from ./Include/Python.h:76,
from Objects/unicodeobject.c :39:
../Include/object.h:228: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:http://bugzilla.redhat .com/bugzillafor instructions.
The bug is not reproducible, so it is likely a hardware or OS problem.
Any suggestion of what am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Alex

You say that the bug is not reproducible, so that means that you can
sometimes compile Python, or does the crash always happen when
compiling some file (not necessarily the one mentioned above)? I think
I've only ever seen a reproducible gcc crash once, and that had
something to do with a C++ source file which I then split into two and
was able to compile as these two separate parts. You might want to
check the gcc version (gcc -v) and to look at bug fixes in any later
versions. Generally, if you get an internal error in gcc, you aren't
doing anything wrong yourself.

It's a strange thing for anyone to claim in an error message, though,
especially if it is reproducible. Perhaps some people have special
criteria for reproducibility .

Hi, I remembered reading a MSc thesis about compiling Perl to Java bytecodes (as in java class files). At least, it seems that someone had compiled scheme to java class files quite successfully.

I do not understand the schematics of .pyc files but I assume that they are the so called python bytecode files. Or is there any...

Hi, I've been thinking about Python vs. Lisp. I've been learning Python the past few months and like it very much.

I wasn't aware I had to uproot my thought process to "get" it and wound up feeling like a moron. In learning Python I've...

Thanks for your answers. I did solve my problem. I upgraded my glibc libraries and it seems to solve the problem. I was able to build python-2.4.5 using gcc 4.1.2 (glibc-2.5-18.el5_1.1) Alex On Thu, 2008-04-24 at 18:05 -0700, Alexandre Gillet wrote:
