NetBSD stella 4.0 NetBSD 4.0 (STELLA) #0: Sat Jun 28 23:10:30 EDT 2008
Machine has AMD k6-3 CPU
Found in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/xfce4-exo/Makefile lines 14-18:
. if exists(/usr/include/mmintrin.h)
I was led to find that by the illegal instruction faults on
which thunar (xfce4-thunar) was dumping core. gdb showed the
fault to occur /usr/pkg/lib/libexo.so which was installed from
binary package recently:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 228283 Jun 17 02:57 \
Note "Jun 17"; a previous installation of xfce4 - probably Dec
or Jan - had no such problem.
The machine in question has an AMD k6-3, for which SSE instructions
are not appropriate. Building with the offending statements
removed from the Makefile allows thunar to run.
If this is not a bug and it has been decided that older hardware
will no longer be supported, then *PLEASE* say so prominently
in documentation and on the NetBSD.org web site.
Install recent build of xfce4-thunar on machine with old CPU and run it.
Remove lines 14 through 18 from xfce4-exo Makefile and refrain
from -msse or any such thing in the future.
