The default Configure leads to an almost ok setup, but four of the
standard tests fail with seg faults. I've spent a few hours on this,
reading through INSTALL, the linux and i386 hints files, rerunning
configure with slight variations, fiddling with the tests, and so on,
and have found nothing obvious or useful.

I've just run through the sequence again, from the top, for this
report. Here's the results, condensed​:

[ralph@​www perl5.005_03]$ make distclean

Looked ok.

[ralph@​www perl5.005_03]$ sh Configure -des

There were a few "NOT founds" displayed; it's not clear
to me if they were significant. For example​:
  dld.h NOT found
  chsize() NOT found
  sys/filio.h NOT found

[ralph@​www perl5.005_03]$ make

Appeared to run fine.

[ralph@​www perl5.005_03]$ make test

Ran 96% clean, but turned up errors with 4 test scripts​:


All have filestamps of july 29 98.

I ran the tests individually​:

[ralph@​www t]$ ./perl io/dup.t
ok 1
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[ralph@​www t]$ ./perl lib/getopt.t
ok 1
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4
ok 5
ok 6
ok 7
ok 8
ok 9
ok 10
ok 11
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[ralph@​www t]$ ./perl lib/io_dup.t
ok 1
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[ralph@​www t]$ ./perl lib/io_xs.t
ok 1
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4 # Invalid argument
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[ralph@​www t]$

That's it. Any ideas?

Nobody reported the same problems as you, and others have successfully
compiled Perl on RedHat Linux, so I'll have to write this off as
your having a dud installation of Linux.

I've marked the bug report as closed.
