That sounds like a question to bring to an SCO forum. Apparently, this
crashes when doing relocations while loading the extension
module. This raises a number of questions:
- Why does it do relocations at all? Could it be that you have object
files that a not position-independent? I.e. is distutils using the
compiler correctly both for compilation, and for linking?
It might be correct that it tries to perform relocation, e.g. for
the global offset table, and the procedure linkage table - but it
*is* troubling that relocations is where it crashes.
- What is the precise version of the operating system you are using?
- I'm troubled by the fact that in both configurations (with an
without gcc), the compiler is always referred-to as "cc". Are you
sure you are not using gcc?
Please have a look at
Notice that the failure mode is quite similar... Likewise,
reports such a problem when using gcc on SCO.
