#12147 closed bug (invalid)

icu_86 appears to be broken

Reported by: haiqu Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: - General Version: R1/Development
Keywords: icu Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


Just got this error whilst compiling speex_x86:

resolve symbol "_ZTVN3icu13UnicodeStringE" returned: -2147478780

This is not the first time I've had symbols missing from the ICU_x86 libraries, so I consider it unusable as it stands.

If there's another explanation I'd be happy to hear it.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

If this is a bug, it's not one in Haiku. Please report the problem to HaikuPorts.

Also, ICU powers the whole locale kit, the Qt port, and a few other things, so it is far from unusable.

waddlesplash: When blithely telling me to report issues to HaikuPorts (not the first time I've heard that) perhaps you could supply a pointer to a bug database interface that works? I can't find one. And btw this is obviously a broken function in ICU, so the comment was irrelevant. Take a look at the symbol name.

pulkomandy: A missing symbol needs to be called to become an issue. So far I have at least two coming up regularly, and each time it stops compilation of another package.

Report is valid.

Report may be valid but it does not go here. HaikuPorts bug tracker is here.

Thanks, that link was actually useful. I haven't been able to negotiate the site with either Firefox2 or WebPositive (see #12013) but the hard link got me there. Reports on any packages included in the build will now go there.

BTW I did consider the earlier suggestion to use the Qt-based browser but since I'm working on getting Lazarus running - amongst other things - my Qt installation is non-standard and changes occasionally so it wouldn't have been practical.

Installed hrev49301 from the online nightly image tonight. I now have a broken WebPositive because it's calling ICU. Error is:- Could not open "WebPositive" (missing symbol: _ZTIN3icu8ByteSinkE).

I've made a report earlier in the day to HaikuPorts bug tracker but it's now more urgent, and I can't access their bug tracker with BeZilla.

Can you check the versions of icu_x86, webpositive_x86 haikuwebkit_x86 and haiku_x86 you have installed? Make sure you don't have older version of the libraries in non-packaged, or in home/config/packages.

ICU does not keep binary compatiblity from one version to another, so you need the exact same version that was used to build the packages.

At hrev49309

icu_x86 is 55.1-1
webpositive_x86 is r1~alpha4_pm_hrev49309-1
haikuwebkit_x86 is 1.4.11-1
haiku_x86 is r1~alpha4_pm_hrev49301-1

No extra copies in any known directory. I haven't had the development copy (icu_x86 55.1-4) installed for about 10 days, but even when I did it made no difference one way or another.

I also tried to build icu_x86 yesterday and it failed utterly with multiple errors.

Still happening at hrev49309. Updated to hrev49344 and problem has vanished.
