perl-5.8.8 is old and no longer maintained. Furthermore, you should not mess too much with the built-in Enterprise Linux perl and instead use perlbrew or whatever and install perl-5.16.x. Can you try it again with a vanilla perl-5.16.x? Regards, -- Shlomi Fish Show quoted text

<snip> I appreciate it's an old version of perl but hoped it would still have some support. I have a global grid of 200+ servers that are reliant on this version (hopefully with a current LibXML). Regards w1bble

I don't believe this issue is specific to upgrading nor to the requestor's version of perl. With a vanilla install of perl-5.16.2, I am seeing the following test results, which seem to indicate a SIGSEGV is killing the perl process of t/40reader_mem_error.t: Running make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /home/utils/perl-5.16/5.16.2-nothreads-64/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/01basic.t .......................... 1/3 # # # Compiled against libxml2 version: 20626 # Running libxml2 version: 20626 # t/01basic.t .......................... ok t/02parse.t .......................... ok t/03doc.t ............................ ok t/04node.t ........................... ok t/05text.t ........................... ok t/06elements.t ....................... ok t/07dtd.t ............................ ok t/08findnodes.t ...................... ok t/09xpath.t .......................... ok t/10ns.t ............................. ok t/11memory.t ......................... skipped: developers only (set MEMORY_TEST=1 to run these tests) t/12html.t ........................... ok t/13dtd.t ............................ ok t/14sax.t ............................ ok t/15nodelist.t ....................... ok t/16docnodes.t ....................... ok t/17callbacks.t ...................... ok t/18docfree.t ........................ ok t/19die_on_invalid_utf8_rt_58848.t ... ok t/19encoding.t ....................... ok t/20extras.t ......................... ok t/21catalog.t ........................ ok t/23rawfunctions.t ................... ok t/24c14n.t ........................... ok t/25relaxng.t ........................ ok t/26schema.t ......................... ok t/27new_callbacks_simple.t ........... ok t/28new_callbacks_multiple.t ......... ok t/29id.t ............................. ok t/30keep_blanks.t .................... ok t/30xpathcontext.t ................... ok t/31xpc_functions.t .................. ok t/32xpc_variables.t .................. ok t/40reader.t ......................... ok t/40reader_mem_error.t ...............

Yes, I received many test failures. Of course, this test would likely have failed with earlier versions of XML::LibXML. Now if I could only get perlbrew or perlall to do what I want. Regards, -- Shlomi Fish Show quoted text

Given that's the only error, does it seem reasonable to you to force installation as a workaround?

I think so. That problem should only affect XML::LibXML::Reader , and existed before the test was added.

Can you people give me the exact versions of the Linux distributions, perl, libxml2, etc. that you are trying to build it on? I seem unable to reproduce (but I guess I can try with CentOS 5.). Regards, — Shlomi Fish

perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi (and I reproduced with a vanilla RHEL 5.8 with perl 5.16 with same issue) Servers are: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.7 (Tikanga) (but majority are RHEL 5.4, nearly all x86_64 a couple of 32bit) libxml-2.0 Thanks w1bble

OK, I was able to reproduce it on a CentOS 5.8 VirtualBox VM with XML::LibXML compiled from sources. However, I suspect that it may be a problem with the version of libxml-2.0 that is shipped with RHEL/CentOS 5 which is very old. I'm going to try it with the latest libxml2 compiled from source. CentOS 6 does not exhibit this problem. Regards, -- Shlomi Fish

OK, the crash does not happen with libxml2-2.9.0 that is compiled with "./configure --prefix=$HOME/apps/libxml". The magic incantation for building it with XML::LibXML Makefile.PL is: perl Makefile.PL LIBS="-L$HOME/apps/libxml2/lib/ -lxml2 -lm -lz" \ INC="-I$HOME/apps/libxml2/include/libxml2" -------- So what do we do now? I guess I can blacklist that particular version of libxml2, but it's possible other versions in between have similar problems. We can also try bisecting the libxml2 repository for that problem. Does anyone have any better suggestions? Regards, -- Shlomi Fish
