Full Version: Compilation problem with Emacs21.4a
Linuxhelp > Support > Programming in Linux
I have decided that I need to learn Emacs before knuckling down to some Linux programming. I couldn't locate Emacs in my Fedora Core 5 installation, so downloaded it I have tried to copile it as directed, i.e.


which seems to be normal, then


which compiles the code, with plenty of warnings, then falls over at the last hurdle and says this.

make[1]: *** [emacs] Segmentation fault
make[1]: *** Deleting file `emacs'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/...........
make: *** [src] Error 2

I am naturally a bit disappointed, and too much of a newbie to dive in to this, and find out what is wrong. Is this a library issue or something, hence all the compilation warnings?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

A segfault happens when a program tries to access memory that hasn't been allocated to it. Make sure that your copy of gcc (the C compiler) is up to date since it might be a memory leak or other compiler-related bug.
