The Configure test for MMX on Intel chips segfaults when built as a 64-bit binary on OS X 10.5. The test passes without crashing when built as a 32-bit binary.

Was this a test in t/configure/? t/steps/? or during Configure.pl itself?

During Configure.pl. I can reproduce this on the command line by building config/auto/cpu/i386/memcpy_mmx.c with the flags "-arch x86_64 -DPARROT_CONFIG_TEST" and running the output; the SSE check also segfaults when I manually run it. No crash happens if I change the $byteorder check in config::auto::arch to respond with x86_64 when passed 12345678, but that's because it doesn't hit the MMX check. Didn't stop any of the other crashes (most of the ones I don't remember from my PPC days present like #57536).

Is there anyone who could provide an update on the status of this bug?

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to worksforme

Configure has been working fine on x86_64 machines under both 10.6 and 10.7 for me. I do not have a 10.5 install to test. Also, I cannot find the reference configure step in master. If any issues persist, please file a new bug at  https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues
