For some reason, the error above happened, and I try to solve by editing this line


and after I tried to make my package again and these happen.

c++: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault (program cc1plus)

with preprocessed source if appropriate.

Anyone encounter this before? I've tried to google and some people explains this as a compiler crash. The solution is to get a new compiler which I don't really understand how. Please help thanks.

qnode.cpp I believe that should be nothing wrong because I was just editing a small part of the code.

You should never, ever edit the system files, especially for the compiler. The problem is probably being caused by some line before line 13 in your qnode.cpp file, but not actually causing an error until that file is included. My guess is that you're not closing a quote in one of the files you include before line 13, or not closing a quote on an include directive.

Don't forget to undo your changes to the system file.

qnode.cpp is added, I already undo the changes, and I think there should be no problem to my .cpp file.

Hmmm. It seems that the error is being triggered by the inclusion of ros.h, which is odd, since it's the first real line of code. Can you compile other things that include ros.h?

Randomly, I noticed that the code claims to be a header file (.hpp), but the error was generated by a source file (.cpp). Shouldn't make a difference for your error, though.

Can't compile everything that include ros.h. I believe that ostream.tcc is the main problem as every file included is pointing backward from qnode > ros,h > time.h > iostream > ostream and eventually go to ostream.tcc line 150:1. /usr/include/c++/4.6/bits/ostream.tcc:150:1: error: missing terminating " character

Try reinstalling the compiler, perhaps, to make sure that your files are correct?

Yes I was thinking that too, can C++ be installed like python?

Do replacing my package solve this problem? It seems like the system file had been 'infected'.

FuerteNewbie gravatar image FuerteNewbie  ( 2013-11-04 15:05:36 -0600 )edit

You should use whatever graphical package manager your distribution supports to reinstall g++. That should replace all of the compiler files to their original state.
