Please post the full output of make, so we can get a clue what's going on here. You might what to change the last line of myldr/run_with_inc.pl beforehand from exit(system(@ARGV) == 0 ? 0 : 1); to system(@ARGV) == 0 or die "system failed: exit=$? error=$!"; so that we can get a bit more diagnostics.

It's useless to continue after the above error. Cheers, Roderich

Yes it's a AIX 5.3 (technical level 10) AIX linker option -bE includes an export file of shared library listing the global symbols. FYI: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/comphelp/v9v111/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.xlcpp9.aix.doc/getstart/new_features.htm Yes that's right I'm using a 32bit Perl installation on a 64bit hardware and kernel. But that should doesn't matter. That's a development host and all target hosts may have not a 64bit environment, so I've to use the 32bit version.

What a crappy debugger that doesn't show you a stack trace when the debuggee dies from a signal... Anyway, thanks for the effort, but there's no use continuing here, as perl_parse leads into the realm of perl internals, i.e. Black Magic Territory. Cheers, Roderich Cheers, Roderich

Is there an option to AIX' truss to show the arg list and environment of an execve() call? I'm beginning to suspect that the process environment on AIX is rather small? Can you retry the experiment with an empty environment, e.g. $ env - truss ... ./par (at least that's what I'd do on Linux). Cheers, Roderich

Yes, that confirms that the E2BIG for execve() is caused by too large args+env passed to the program. According to IBM docs, AIX 5 has a ridiculous, non-configurable limit of 24K for args. The main culprit here is PAR::Packer: it calls par with one argument that is already 23K long (it's a "perl -e ..." type command). Maybe I can eliminate that, but that's a bit of work and I want to make sure beforehand that this the only reason why PAR::Packer doesn't work on AIX 5. Hence, are you ready for a little experiment? (1) Run "make clean" to start with a clean slate (2) Try to shrink your process enviroment by unsetting all environment variables that are not absolutely necessary (3) Strip non-functional whitespace from script/par.pl (saves ~4K) by running $ perl -i -p -e 's/^\s+// if /^=cut/../^1;/' script/par.pl (4) Save some more environmental bytes by reducing the array ld_path_keys in function par_setup_libpath in myldr/mktmpdir.c like this const char *ld_path_keys[3] = { "LIBPATH", "PATH", "" }; (note the empty string as last element) (5) Now try a normal build $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test Cheers, Roderich

Thanks for testing. I'll leave the bug open for now, so that people can find the workaround until I (or someone else) can find the time to fix it properly by getting rid of the 23K arg to execve() par during bootstrapping. Cheers, Roderich

Hello Roderich, I've run in the same problem with PAR-Packer-1.018 again. But this time I found another quick-fix for this problem: http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.par/2008/06/msg3615.html ##### QUOTE BEGIN ##### On all AIX versions I tested (4.3 - 5.3) the following compiler error will be seen when running a 'make' for PAR::Packer: ------------ ./par: execution of ./par failed - aborting with -1. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 975. make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 7. Stop. ------------ A trace of the process showed E2BIG - which means the default AIX setting of ncargs (ARG/ENV list size in 4K byte blocks) is not sufficient for PAR::Packer to function. A possible (quick)fix is to increase ncargs from its default value of 6 by running 'chdev -l sys0 -a ncargs=7', bearing in mind this can only be done on AIX 5L and higher, not AIX 4.3. Can this ncargs requirement really not be avoided by the distribution? It was not a problem during earlier PAR::Packer distributions I built (at least 0.970, possibly 0.976). ##### QUOTE END ##### Maybe you can append this quick-fix to the ticket.

Yes, that confirms that the E2BIG for execve() is caused by too large args+env passed to the program. According to IBM docs, AIX 5 has a ridiculous, non-configurable limit of 24K for args. The main culprit here is PAR::Packer: it calls par with one argument that is already 23K long (it's a "perl -e ..." type command). Maybe I can eliminate that, but that's a bit of work and I want to make sure beforehand that this the only reason why PAR::Packer doesn't work on AIX 5. Hence, are you ready for a little experiment? (1) Run "make clean" to start with a clean slate (2) Try to shrink your process enviroment by unsetting all environment variables that are not absolutely necessary (3) Strip non-functional whitespace from script/par.pl (saves ~4K) by running $ perl -i -p -e 's/^\s+// if /^=cut/../^1;/' script/par.pl (4) Save some more environmental bytes by reducing the array ld_path_keys in function par_setup_libpath in myldr/mktmpdir.c like this const char *ld_path_keys[3] = { "LIBPATH", "PATH", "" }; (note the empty string as last element) (5) Now try a normal build $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test Cheers, Roderich

Well script/par.pl went from 26536 bytes in PAR::Packer 0.970 to 29466 bytes in 1.018. Not much, but apparently enough to hit the limited argv space in AIX. Can you try the patch below which shrinks the infamous fakeargv[2] by about 8k.

Good news :) I've committed the above patch, will be in the next release of PAR::Packer. Thanks for testing. Cheers, Roderich
