  • sparvu commented on I can't install perl-5.26.0-RC1 in CentOS 5.11

    Im on CentOS release 5.11 (Final)using gcc version 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-1) (GCC) and have same error when trying to build perl 5.24.3

    miniperlmain.o -lpthread -lnsl -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lc
    sv.o: In function `S_hextract':
    sv.c:(.text+0x9b5): undefined reference to `Perl_fp_class_denorm'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [lib/] Error 1

    Any success or we need to give up on CentOS 5.x and move forward to 6.x ?

    This problem is maybe fixed next release of Perl 5.26. It seems to patch to blead branch.

    Hey, Ryan. How's it going?

    Just tried to look at my failures, but I hit two problems:
    * The author page says I have two failing modules, but the module page only lists one with my name on it.
    * The link to the failure log gives me a 404.

    Thx for all your hard work!

    11172-#define HEXTRACT_GET_SUBNORMAL(nv) *subnormal = fpclassify(nv)
    11173-#define HEXTRACT_IMPLICIT_BIT(nv) \

    "make test" fails one test "os/sprintf2.t"
