Sorry for cross-posting but I need to tap into my most helpful
mailinglists for this problem. I have had assertion failed errors from
make before and never understood what they were or where they came from.
But now that I have them consistently for ffmpeg and mplayer on everything
smaller than FC2, which prevents me from updating both mplayer and ffmpeg
(and I know lots of other applications have the same issue).
The exact error is:
make: expand.c:489: allocated_variable_append: Assertion `current_variable_set_list->next != 0' failed.
By coincidence (called Google) I found this page:
and it made the relation with make 3.79.1 pretty clear. (fc1, el3, rh9,
rh7 and el2 all use make 3.79.1)
I was wondering if anyone knows of a better solution than explained in
the valgrind FAQ, or better than upgrading make.
Once upon a time mplayer built without this assertion, other applications
as well. So is this caused by a more recent configure/autotools used by
the developers ? Some way to prevent this ?
Anyone ? :)
