failed to start X by bad Mesa packages on TC9.0
« on: July 05, 2018, 04:35:51 AM »
I hit the issue that fail to start X (xorg) with SIGILL on TC9.0 (both x86_64 and x86) - and looks this is the build problem of Mesa packages.

I know that enabling LTO options ("-flto -fuse-linker-plugin") in CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS is general way at TinyCoreLinux pkg build, but looks having those LTO related options caused this issue.
Can we remove LTO option for building mesa library packages (libGL.tcz / libGL-dev.tcz / libEGL.tcz / libEGL-dev.tcz / libGLESv2.tcz / libGLESv2-dev.tcz / Xorg-7.7-3d.tcz / Xorg-7.7-3d-dev.tcz) ?
This could increase each binary file size little bit, but at least it enables us to start up X without crash.

Here is the details:

I have the boxes which have Radeon HD6320 video card - that use ATI/Radeon video driver (xf86-video-ati.tcz)
at start up X, I got SIGILL - as in Xorg.0.log:

(EE) Illegal instruction at address 0x7fc520c844a1
Fatal server error:

and confirmed SIGILL is happened both x86 and x86_64.

So I tested with xorg-server, rebuilt with debug option and run it with gdb - gdb caught it comes from /usr/local/lib/dri/r600_dri.so

Code: [Select]
Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
0x00007f46058a94a1 in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/dri/r600_dri.so

So I rebuilt mesa-18.0.0 with debug option (-g3) all keep other options are same as http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86_64/tcz/src/Xorg/compile_mesa, but that binary just worked without SIGILL - that led us to suspect GCC compiler bug.
I tested various GCC options, and figured out that when I built with LTO options, I had bad binary that caused SIGILL. By removing "-flto -fuse-linker-plugin" options, I could get working binary.

In our case, just replace /usr/local/lib/dri/r600_dri.so (from Xorg-7.7-3d.tcz) and /usr/local/lib/libglapi.so.0.0.0 (dependent file from r600_dri.so - from libGL.tcz) that helps to avoid SIGILL and launch X - but this could be affected other files combinations as well.
