What are your CFLAGS?
Anything unusual in your USE flags?

sorry about the cross post i figured i must of posted in the wrong forum as i had no replies for a few days or so and thought i might as well post in a different one anyway sorry again

anyway no go on that i have a mobile AMD Athlon XP 2200+ CPU and have tried the following

CFLAGS="-mcpu=athlon-xp -03 -pipe"
CFLAGS="-mcpu=athlon -03 -pipe"
CFLAGS="-mcpu=i686"

open to suggestions on this i have had redhat on this thing as well as slack over the last week or so but want a source based like i had on my previous laptop :(

ghostscript-7.05.5 is the current version in portage.

Code:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge ghostscript


will attempt to emerge the testing version: ghostscript-7.05.6, which is probably worth a shot.

try w/ -O@ or -O1. -O3 can cause trouble. Merge a differnt version of ghostscript individually. they the unstable version. That often fixes problems.

If you are still having difficulties, you could try running the emerge with strace (you will need to emerge strace if you don't have it). Redirect the output to a file - it might give us some hints about where exactly the problem is occuring.

A search on strace in these forums should give some examples of usage.

Good News

i just got past the point where it used to crash for anyone else having this problem it must of been one of 3 things i can say what i'm afraid as i reinstalled gentoo anyway it was either installing the whole system with

CFLAGS="-mcpu=athlon-xp -01 -pipe"

or

i installed a bios update

or

i installed ghostscript (and the dependencies it pulls in) before i tried to install gnome although i do have gnome in my use flags

anyway should this ever turn up again i hope this helps

PS thanx for the help from these forums
