Description (last modified by igloo)

Looks like there hasn't been a binary dist for ghc in a very long time, any chance we could see one soon?

I followed the instructions in "Porting GHC". I get so far that I had a HP-UX ghc-inplace in T/ghc/compiler. Unfortunatly this binary segfaults :-(.

There may be a bug in gcc-4.1.1 on HP-UX. OCaml's bytecode interpreter has the same problem, but could be build with gcc -O0.

I'll try next to compile all *.hc files with gcc -O0.

Additional infos:

my ghc: 6.4.2 (Porting GHC is not up-to-date for ghc-6.6). the ghc-inplace segfaults in some cases. But I can get this message:


Failed to load interface for `Prelude':

Could not find module `Prelude':

use -v to see a list of the files searched for

in ghc/rtc just one file triggers now a segfault of ghc-inplace: PrimOps.cmm.

Gdb doesn't help much:

(gdb) up warning: Attempting to unwind past bad PC 0x79cff180 #1 0x79ce7340 in gmpz_mul (w=0x40417798, u=0x2, v=0x77bc2c04)

at ../../mpz/mul.c:89

89 cy_limb = mpn_mul_1 (wp, PTR(u), usize, PTR(v)[0]); Current language: auto; currently c

I build gmp by my own. `make check' succedes. And the given line is in a #if 0 ... #endif block.

Any ideas?
