I am trying to get a working version of perl5.005_03 on a AIX 18.104.22.168.
Configuring was not a problem.
But when using make, I keep having problems.
The first problem occured when using miniperl on pod/pod2text.PL; it
resulted in a core dump. Calling it from the prompt solved this problem.
The second problem was that ext/Opcode/Makefile.PL would not generate a
Makefile. Temporary solved it by using Makefile.old. Here also a core dump.
And again problems this time when calling:
./miniperl -Ilib -e 'use AutoSplit; autosplit_lib_modules(@ARGV)' lib/*.pm
make: 1254-059 The signal code from the last command is 11.
(This signals a segmentation violation)
The core dump's are always generated by miniperl.
Examing the coredump shows :
Segmentation fault in Perl_scalar at line 785 in file "op.c" ($t1)
785 for (kid = cUNOPo->op_first; kid; kid = kid->op_sibling)
Is this a known problem?
Do you have any suggestions as how to tackle this problem; I don't really
have the time to start source debugging.
Many thanks in advancd,
Yours sincerly P. Bunck
