arch=(any) is incorrect here, this is an ELF executable meaning it should be set to x86_64 and any other supported architectures

for what do you need set -u/+u

the shc-git works without the set -u/+u

Is set +u the try to break out of the fakeroot????

please update the source URL as it's currently broken

We know it's not your glibc because my generated executable links to your glibc and works. The solution comes in two steps. First work with your compiler until you can compile the generated C source into a working executable. gcc -s -o Once you have that working your compiler should be able to produce a working shc package. % pacman -Qs gcc-multilib local/gcc-multilib 6.2.1-1 (multilib-devel) The compiler version shouldn't be a problem. There were no complaints when gcc53 was the latest.

I receive your files 1) your bin works OK 2) I installed your shc pkg.tar.gz 3) using your I build it in my system (shc -f - your and my are equal - but my not works (cpu 100%) p.s. I have: glibc-2.24-2 lib32-glibc-2.24-2

I uncommenti line in PKGBUILD only: patch -p0 -c < '../disableencryption.diff' and rebuild shc p.s. can you share your shc-3.9.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz ?

Your link has the same file as before.

I build shc enabling patch, and this is result: p.s. which version of gcc are you using?

sacarde commented on 2016-09-26 07:07 (UTC)

I use: - gcc-libs-multilib 5.3.0-3 - gcc-multilib 5.3.0-3 - lib32-gcc-libs 5.3.0-3 with: p.s. I will try build with: patch -p0 -c < '../disableencryption.diff' thanks

When I compile your generated source file it prints garbage instead of locking up. My generated source works correctly whether shc compiles it or I compile it manually. This tells me that your shc is producing a bad source file and your gcc is compiling it wrong. For me shc works on 3 x64 systems and one i686 system. Something on your system is causing the problem. I suspect an errant CFLAGS in your .bashrc. To help debug this I've added a patch which disables the layout randomization, the arc4 encryption, and shows the C source in some text instead of all octal. This makes the generated source readable and comparable between your system and mine. You might be able to figure out the problem just by looking at the unencrypted generated source. If not you can send me an unencrypted generated source and I can compare with mine. The patch is disabled. You need to enable it in PKGBUILD.
