I'm having problems building this kernel with the following error

Code:
Invalid absolute R_X86_64_32S relocation: _etext
make[2]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/Makefile:130: arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.relocs] Error 1
make[2]: *** Suppression du fichier « arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.relocs »
make[2]: *** Attente des tâches non terminées....
  CC      arch/x86/boot/cpu.o
  CC      arch/x86/boot/compressed/cpuflags.o
  CC      arch/x86/boot/compressed/early_serial_console.o
make[1]: *** [arch/x86/boot/Makefile:112: arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
make: *** [arch/x86/Makefile:316: bzImage] Error 2

There was a fellow gentoo user who reported this in mid-May https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/5/16/583 , but his solution make distclean didn't work for me.
I've even tried make defconfig for a default config , but to no avail . Any ideas or suggestions ?

Yeah, no issues here as well, must be something specific.

Yes thanks , but i don't want to do this for every kernel , particularly as it's a upstream patch.

@ Kaizer Yes it does look that way , 5.1.5 build fine. i'm on a hardened no-multilib profile with gcc-9.1 , Johannes Hirte reported it failed with both 8.3.0-r1 and 9.1.0 before make distclean worked.

I don't have any ideas myself and it's not something i can ignore as 5.1.7 etc will most likely present the same problem , perhaps if i file a bug someone more knowledgable can point the way ?

I'm not alone https://bugs.gentoo.org/687116 :)

Moonboots,

That's not the error we need.

Code:
make: *** [arch/x86/Makefile:316: bzImage] Error 2


Error 2 usually means its a second or subsequent error.
We need the error tagged Error 1, as that's the one we need to fix.

Depending on how many parallel makes you run, it can be a very long way back in the build log.
Pastebin the entire build log please.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge Neddy , but I don’t use genkernel.
Where would I find or how would I obtain the build.log ?

I've actually thought the same until I've noticed this:
Code:
Invalid absolute R_X86_64_32S relocation: _etext

it is the first line in his paste

Moonboots,

I misread your original post. Sorry about that.
The Error 1 is there.

Can you post the output of
Code:
emerge --info

Code:
gcc-config -l

Code:
binutils-config-l


I suspect an old gcc or old binutils (or both) in use.

Are you using the gold linker?
Answer no if you don't know what the gold linker is.
Code:
ld -V
will tell you on the first line of the output.

@ DaggyStyle @ Neddy,

I used as initially make distclean , then thanks to Marien Zwart, built with bfd linker the kernel successfully.

Pity we have appeared to have lost the ability to build with gold :( But that life !

gold's been a source of hard-to-diagnose bugs since it was first introduced. I think it's irresponsible of Gentoo to be installing it at all at this point.

Gentoo is not forcing gold on to anybody, apart from Firefox with pgo ?, even that is a matter of choice.
Apart from the ebulds which force bfd, curl is only example before which need a manual no-gold.
The problem with this gentoo-sources was a new upstream patch,previous kernels had built without incidence.

Ant P.,

The gold linker is present but its not the default.
It mostly works but as you say, its a PITA when it doesn't.

If you turn the gold linker on system wide, Gentoo expects you to deal with it, or post here :)
