Alas, gcc5 has now been dropped from the official repos. However, you can still get the old package here:

Note that that package is out of date, and the final version of gcc5 (5.5) is available on the AUR here: it is unlikely that you will need to build this package more than once, since it's no longer receiving updates.

Also worth noting is that palemoon upstream /still/ reccomend the long defunct gcc49 over any modern compiler, if you want to use that you will need to modify the mozconfig file's CC and CXX flags as well as the PKGBUILD's makedepends array and md5sums.

@jerome2016: I've had another look at the strace output, and I noticed this line: openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/lib/", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

I don't get that message when I run strace palemoon, so I have to assume something on your system is trying to pull it in. The icu package was updated in mid-November, so is your system completely up-to-date? (including any AUR packages which may need a rebuild due to the icu version bump).

Use lddd or findbrokenpkgs to identify any packages that might need a rebuild. Note that you will get false positives with either tool, so I prefer to run the former, then run

for pkg in $(pacman -Qqm); do
grep $pkg /tmp/lddd-script.*/possible-rebuilds.txt

to get a list of foreign packages which may need rebuilding.

@jerome2016: I haven't been able to reproduce this so far, but assuming you are the same user who created this topic, I recommend rebuilding with gcc5, instead of using gcc6. Aside from the glibc/C99_MATH bug below, I have never had any problems with the former.

Unfortunately I am away on holiday until the 4th of December, so I am unable to update this package until then. It should be a simple pkgver bump though, so it's easy enough to update the PKGBUILD manually (for those who can't wait).

A notify daemon is not needed to build the package. If your build is really terminating because it can't create a notification file a bug report upstream and/or build in a clean chroot.

unable to build without a service providing org.frreedesktop.Notifications (eg. xfce4-notifyd), please add it as a dep

19:03.76 Notification center failed: The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files

EDIT: and it has to be started, even. meh.

Ok, all is good now. @WorMzy it's as you described.

Problem solved :-)

Interesting! I again tried to build palemoon with my old build of gcc5 from the AUR. Now it stopped at another point.

How can this be so random?!?!

Ok I'll definitely rebuild gcc5 now while the machine is alone.

Oh and:
$ grep _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.5.0/include/c++/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bits/c++config.h
/* #undef _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH */
#define _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH_TR1 1

WorMzy commented on 2017-11-12 23:07

Thanks, runical.

@sekret, that probably was the culprit (or at least part of the problem). Ignore the _TR1 varient, it is the '#undef _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH' that causes the __builtin problem, and is possibly the cause of your build failure too. If the gcc5 rebuild had completed, you would (hopefully) have found that c++config.h now had '#define _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH 1' instead, and the palemoon package builds again.

I built GCC5 last Thursday (November 9th). The exact time being 12:35:53 CET.

My processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200M

The build flags in my chroot are as standard as they come:

CFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong -fno-plt"
CXXFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong -fno-plt"

_GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH is also defined.

I don't know if the info was still needed, but here you go.
