  1. Error 139 when making GARNOME 0.23.3 in RH Linux 7.1


    Greetings!

    On my Linux system, I was investigating why the dpms didn't seem to
    be working now. (I KNEW it worked, because before I installed RH Linux
    7.1, it did.) I searched on Google, and found that I needed to use
    Xscreensaver, and I found the URL for that.

    I saw indeed, that the exact problem I was having had been seen and
    solved. So, I went into Programs->Settings->Desktop->Screensaver and
    turned off the screensaver there.

    And, I ran /usr/X11R6/bin/xscreensaver-demo and everything was going
    great! And, then, I began investigating what a few of the things that
    were not checked looked like (like qix) and checked a couple of them, that
    were not checked.

    Then xscreensaver-demo died with a core dump. And, now I can't run
    it at all. I run it, and the window comes up and then it dies with a core
    dump before I can even read anything in the window. So, I couldn't fix my
    problem...

    Looking at the Xscreensaver FAQ, in question number 12, it said that
    even with RH Linux 7.3, the xscreensaver was more than a year old! It
    said to please upgrade.

    And, then, I also decided that I was just going to upgrade to the
    latest GNOME, as well, while I was into all this.

    So, I downloaded version 0.28.3 of GARNOME, and un-bzip2'd it and
    checked a few configuration things, and then typed "make install" as it
    suggested.

    It processed for quite a while, and then produced this:

    <<>>
    if [ -f /local/downloads/garnome/etc/fonts/local.conf ]; then \
    echo "not overwriting existing /local/downloads/garnome/etc/fonts/local.conf"; \
    else if [ -f ./local.conf ]; then \
    echo " /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./local.conf /local/downloads/garnome/etc/fonts/local.conf"; \
    /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./local.conf /local/downloads/garnome/etc/fonts/local.conf; \
    else if [ -f local.conf ]; then \
    echo " /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 local.conf /local/downloads/garnome/etc/fonts/local.conf"; \

    <<>>

    I have also Google'd on "Error 139", but I haven't found anything that
    I believe would be appropriate to my situation. I also included only what
    I felt would be useful, to try to give all appropriate information here,
    but also keep it as short as possible.

    Can someone suggest something for me to try to see whether I can
    figure out what the "Error 139" (above) is? I would appreciate it!

    Thank you!

  2. Re: Error 139 when making GARNOME 0.23.3 in RH Linux 7.1


    Greetings again!

    My problem is not solved yet, but I'll update you on what I've done
    since the other message.

    The first thing I did was begin searching the References (at the end
    of the garnome-0.28.3/README file). The first web site
    (http://www.lnx-bbc.org/garchitecture.html} had an area entitled "Building
    LNX-BBC in a known-good chroot environment." This had a copy of the
    chroot (at http://dorothy.movealong.org/~inkblo...-3.0r1.tar.bz2), so
    I downloaded this, and tried it.

    This was rather neat. I did the tar, chroot, and the two mount
    commands, just fine, and I did the mount --bind my home directory. This
    worked exactly as advertised! (My compliments to everyone involved in
    putting this together, with such precise directions!)

    I then tried building GARNOME again. It got further. However, I
    eventually got an error that X was required, and it was not available.

    While this was going, I noticed in the "Linux Frequently Asked
    Questions with Answers (Part 6 of 6)" something about Error 139. It
    suggested getting the latest release of GCC. (Since the problem
    is repeatable, I don't think I have memory or disk corruption.)

    :-) Everything I haven't updated otherwise, and this includes gcc,
    is now over two years old! :-) So, I downloaded the 3.3.2 version of GCC
    and I DID get this compiled and installed just fine! :-)

    So, back to the garnome-0.28.3 attempt! I get further now. However,
    I still have an error, and I'm having difficulty figuring out what to do.

    Specifically, this is the output:

    <<>>

    <<>>

    The "Error 127" appears about the middle of this excerpt.

    Now, I see "libgcc_s.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such
    file or directory" -- but I do find libgcc_s.so.1. I even copied it
    around to a couple of other directories, including even the same directory
    in which lt-glib-genmarshal is located, but I still get the error. I have
    run lt-glib-genmarshal alone, and I get exactly the same (error) output,
    and I did a "strings lt-glib-genmarshal" and have been trying to figure
    out what directory I could place the libgcc_s.so.1 file in get this to
    finish, but I'm running out of ideas! :-)

    This updates you on what more I've done since my other message, and I
    still have a question, though it's another question! :-) If you can
    provide me with any assistance or suggestions on what to try, I'd
    appreciate it!

    Thank you!

    Greetings yet again!

    Well, I solved the problem I had in the last message (posted earlier
    today), but I find myself back at the same error as I had in the first
    message! So, the first message's question applies again! :-O

    I simply copied libgcc_s.so.1 to /lib (which I thought I had done!!),
    and I was able to make on past that problem.

    I did make further along, yet I am getting an Error 139 again, pretty
    well exactly as in the first message:

    <<>>

    if [ x = x ]; then fc-cache/fc-cache -f -v; fi

    /usr/src/garnome/garnome-0.28.3/bootstrap/fontconfig/work/main.d/fontconfig-2.2.1/fc-cache/.libs/lt-fc-cache: "/usr/share/fonts/default": caching, 0 fonts, 2 dirs

    make[8]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/garnome/garnome-0.28.3/bootstrap/fontconfig/work/main.d/fontconfig-2.2.1'

    make[7]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/garnome/garnome-0.28.3/bootstrap/fontconfig/work/main.d/fontconfig-2.2.1'
    <<>>

    This time, I have already found "Error 139" in the FAQ, and I have
    installed the newest GCC, and I still don't think it's a memory or disk
    corruption problem, as the problem occurs in exactly the same spot every
    time I try to execute the 'make install.'

    I am continuing to try to think of everything I can think of to try
    to fix the problem. As I said in the first message, if someone can
    suggest something else that perhaps I haven't thought of, I'd appreciate
    it!

    Thank you!

  4. Re: Error 139 when making GARNOME 0.23.3 in RH Linux 7.1

    Greetings!

    Oh! This has been solved, thanks to a very nice guy named Thomas
    (thansen@terra.com.br).

    First point, the garnome mailing list has the real answers and help
    to this, so this wasn't the best place to post this question. I just
    didn't know it at the time! :-)

    Secondly, here is his solution:

    Anyway, this problem is caused when fc-cache tries to read the
    /usr/share/fonts/default/ghostscript/. The easyest workaround is:

    1) Temporarily move the ghostscript/ folder to another place (like ~/.);
    2) Try to run fc-cache. It will work fine.
    3) Re-run make install. It will not stop this time
    4) After finishing the compilation, replace de ghostscript directory
    to its original place (or you will probably break your ghostscript
    installation...)


    Thanks, Thomas! :-)

    Barry

    OOOOHHH! I forgot all about that!

    I am extremely sorry for this... I guess it's too late...
