Hi Jeff,

^^^^ what perplexes me is that stdout is redirecting to the filedescriptor 5 which is not a standardized one. Does that filedescriptor ( /dev/fd/5 ) exist? This may be the reason why compiling without redirecting the output, like you already tried, works fine. Try passing the 1>&5 to the call of gcc too and check wether it segfaults again. On a DS20e, gcc just throws a "Bad file descriptor" error without segfaulting. HTH, greetings Nils -- gentoo-alpha@g.o mailing list
