Fedora build failure

Martin Irungu
I downloaded the August 2014 source tarball for Fedora (I am running Fedora 24). I've followed the instructions on the download page and readme, except for installing texlive-fonts-extra (I couldn't find an RPM anywhere so I just installed texlive-full instead)
Make freezes after building vol. 13 of the book. The readme says to allow about 2 hrs for the build on a 2GHz machine. I've waited nearly five, restarted it twice and tried it on a different computer (also on Fedora). It keeps stopping just after it builds the PDFs.
Could someone please explain how I should proceed and perhaps update the download page to include an alternative to texlive-fonts-extra? I can't imagine everyone trying to install Axiom on Fedora also has to fetch all of TeXlive.

Martin

Try the following:

  git clone git:://github.com/daly/axiom
  cd axiom
  export AXIOM=`pwd`/mnt/fedora64
  export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH
  make NOISE= | tee console

If it still hangs I will need to know what Fedora image
you have installed so I can build a machine with your
exact image. Which ISO file did you use?

If it fails for any other reason please do
    tail -200 console >failure
and post the failure file.

Tim

Re: Fedora Build Failure

Martin,

Your build is failing with GCL, not Axiom. There is a known problem
with the latest GCC which seems to be causing failures. Try:
   
   git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/gcl.git
   cd git
   ./configure
   make

and let me know if that succeeds or fails.

Tim

Thanks for responding. This is the exact image I'm running. I had tried 'make NOISE=' after I sent the report and got the same error message.
