Core dump building Ice 1.4 on Solaris

Hi again,

I just downloaded 1.4 for C++ and was building it on Solaris and it core dumped:

make[2]: Entering directory `/build/external/Ice-1.4.0_src/Ice-1.4.0/src/IcePatch'
rm -f ../../include/IcePatch/IcePatch.h IcePatch.cpp
../../bin/slice2cpp --ice --include-dir IcePatch --dll-export ICE_PATCH_API -I../../slice ../../slice/IcePatch/
make[2]: *** [IcePatch.cpp] Bus Error (core dumped)
make[2]: *** Deleting file `IcePatch.cpp'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/build/external/Ice-1.4.0_src/Ice-1.4.0/src/IcePatch'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/build/external/Ice-1.4.0_src/Ice-1.4.0/src'
make: *** [all] Error 1

Any ideas?

Thanks again,

    Please provide detailed information about your compiler version and patch level, compiler options used for compiling Ice, as well as information about your operating system version and patch level.
  • Here you go, Marc:

    uname -a gives -> SunOS proteus 5.8 Generic_108528-23 sun4u sparc

    CC -V gives -> Sun WorkShop 5 update 2 C++ 5.3 Patch 111685-17 2003/08/11

    I've attached the Make.rules fron the Ice 1.4 config directory.

    Please have a look at our list of supported platforms. We do not support CC 5.3 because of too many bugs in this compiler version. You need CC 5.4 or higher.
