I am trying to compile the userland of 3.1-stable. I pull the sources
down from CVS and have successfully built the kernel and rebooted.
The compiling hangs in the same point every time ( left overnight so it
has waited hours). The computer doesn't hang (I have had the before
with a linker bug that was running out of swap space) and the compile
process can be easily ^C. I have tried to add nearly 1 Gb of swap to
see if I can get around it but to no avail.
I was having a previous problem with compiling other software which was
fixed by running "make depend" in /usr/src before "make obj" and "make
build". Could this cause problems elsewhere (this extra step isn't in
the FAQ, but I found it on a mailing list)? Also, since I last ran "make
depend" and "make obj", I have just been running "make build" without
the other steps to restart the process. Is this in error?
The hanging is in the compile involves libcrypto and libssl. Always at
the very same place it just stops and sits idle. It is not at the start
of the process that involves these two, but some way in.
Redirecting the output would allow me probably capture a screen dump
that I could get out of VMWare (where I am running it) but I am
wondering if anyone can think of a step I should take to clear this
problem. Would a simple "make clean" and try again work? I would
rather not recompile everything from scratch.
