Default [SOLVED] What am I doing wrong? (multiple compilation errors)

Hi, I am on a fresh 5.5 install fully patched and I got to be doing something wrong because I just can't use ports on a reliable way. It always fail at some package.

I was trying to install Firefox as my first package and, while installing db the post-install process failed because of a "file not found" error. Ok, got to be something wrong with the port itself, lets install the binary. Then it goes to another package (I forgot, I am sorry and by the way where can I find the compilation logs?) and it fails because the system run out of my virtual memory. During llvm compilation basically the same error ('unable to allocate memory"). All of the errors I "fixed" by installing the binary package. And now, finally, on Firefox I get this:

Code:
-Wpointer-arith -Woverloaded-virtual -Werror=return-type -Wtype-limits -Wempty-body -Wsign-compare -Wno-invalid-offsetof -Wno-c++0x-extensions -Wno-extended-offsetof -Wno-unknown-warning-option -Wno-return-type-c-linkage -Wno-mismatched-tags -std=gnu++0x -fdeprecated-macro -ferror-limit 19 -fmessage-length 106 -pthread -stack-protector 1 -mstackrealign -fno-rtti -fobjc-runtime=gnustep -fobjc-default-synthesize-properties -fdiagnostics-show-option -backend-option -vectorize-loops -o nsGlobalWindow.o -x c++ /usr/ports/pobj/firefox-26.0/mozilla-release/dom/base/nsGlobalWindow.cpp

I grabbed my ports tree following, exactly, the instructions here

Steps I've done:

$ cd /tmp
$ ftp http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.5/ports.tar.gz
$ ftp http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.5/SHA256.sig
$ signify -C -p /etc/signify/openbsd-55-base.pub -x SHA256.sig ports.tar.gz
$ cd /usr
$ sudo tar xzf /tmp/ports.tar.gz

Hi again.

From the fragment you've posted, all we are able to see is that the compiler clang has failed with a segmentation fault while compiling firefox. I certainly don't have enough information from this fragment to tell you why.

To install firefox on your amd64 -release system, you need only:
Code:
# export PKG_PATH=http://<your.nearest.mirror>/pub/OpenBSD/5.5/packages/amd64/
# pkg_add firefox
If the pkg_add fails, a console log from that would be very helpful.

To create a console log, use script(1). The saved file can be filtered through col(1) with the -b option, then edited for copy/paste here.
Code:
$ script
Script started, output file is typescript
$ <command>
$ <command>
$ <command>
$ exit
Script done, output file is typescript
$ col -b < typescript > my.log
There are only two reasons a -release or -stable user needs to create a package from its port:
  1. The package is unavailable from the project, either due to a licensing issue or an unusual $FLAVOR was not packaged
  2. A -stable port was developed but the project does not have a package for it.
Packages you build from ports are operationally identical to the packages the project makes available. There is no advantage to building from ports yourself. See FAQ 15.4.6.

pkg_add works fine but well I am a former Gentoo user, I like to compile stuff from source. Even knowing the binary packages works fine it is a problem that still bothers me, don't the errors I am getting (unable to allocate memory, out of virtual memory) means there is something wrong with my system?

There's nothing wrong with your system. You're attempting to compile one of the larger ports, and I'll guess that you're doing so as a user with limited resources. Let's examine your /etc/login.conf file.

For amd64, the default class has:
Code:
default:\
    :path=/usr/bin /bin /usr/sbin /sbin /usr/X11R6/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/local/sbin:\
    :umask=022:\
    :datasize-max=512M:\
    :datasize-cur=512M:\
    :maxproc-max=256:\
    :maxproc-cur=128:\
    :openfiles-cur=512:\
    :stacksize-cur=4M:\
    :localcipher=blowfish,6:\
    :ypcipher=old:\
    :tc=auth-defaults:\
    :tc=auth-ftp-defaults:
The staff class has:
Code:
staff:\
    :datasize-cur=512M:\
    :datasize-max=infinity:\
    :maxproc-max=512:\
    :maxproc-cur=128:\
    :ignorenologin:\
    :requirehome@:\
    :tc=default:
There is also a daemon class.

Check your userid's class and your shell's ulimit -a (for bourne-based shells) or limit (for C-based shells).

While you're free to waste your own time building ports on a release (http://funroll-loops.info/), this one is simple:

Code:
$ ulimit -d
524288
$ ulimit -d 1048576
$ cd /usr/ports/www/mozilla-firefox && make install-all
You can keep raising it until you find what works for you.

I like this better than messing with /etc/login.conf because you'll only raise limits if and when you need them, and it's impossible to make any subtle mistakes in that file.

The relevant man page here is ksh(1) and grep for ulimit. I'd highly suggest you learn it first on the default shell before moving on to other shells.

I am part of the staff class and I was running the port as root with sudo (even root is limited?) And what exactly does "cur" size stands for? English is not my native language and I am failing to grasp its meaning. Well, I think it would be better to stick to binary packages then.

My apologies if my advice appeared to suggest editing the file. I was attempting to suggest the use of the proper class selection and ulimit setting.

cur = current.

You can adjust the current limitation in your shell, up to the maximum of the class, as shown in ibara's example.

login.conf(5)
But really, it's better to do it via your shell.

Of course root is/can be limited. I also think your understanding of sudo is limited...

Sticking to binaries packages is overwhelmingly recommended on releases. There's no difference between what you get from the default ports build and packages and attempts to "tweak" ports will garner you no help. And people will probably laugh at you when you don't understand why something is broken.

TL;DR: We do all the hard work for you for a reason. Hard work is hard and the vast majority of people don't understand it sufficiently.

Ah, no worries. It did come across like that but I see what you were getting at now.

Oh, so sudo works like a non-login shell (I.know it is not a exact comparation but I don't know how to word that better)? And from now I will stick to binary packages

This is the last time I'm going to do this. You're running OpenBSD, you have the man(1) command. Use it:
sudo(8)

While others have addressed most of the most probable issues (login.conf(5)), compiling as root is highly frowned upon. One may be able to successfully navigate builds like this for awhile, but at some point, errors can & will be made.

Section 15.3.3 discusses the general rule of ports tree preparation such that ports can be compiled as a regular user. I will even add that setting the SUDO variable to the following in mk.conf(5):

Code:
SUDO=/usr/bin/sudo -E
...is a worthy modification to the information found in the FAQ. Source:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&m=139418997803709&w=2

...but to reiterate, unless there is a specific reason to do so, -release users have few reasons to compile from the ports tree. Use packages instead.
