Kaleidoscope toy4 failure seg fault on llvm::ExecutionEngine::getTargetData (this=0x0)

I am new to llvm so I might be missing a critical step. My system is
Fedora 12 but this also happens in Mac OS X 10.6.2. Here are the
steps I used to compile llvm:
export TARGETS=x86,x86_64,cpp
export INSTALLDIR=/home/rovitotv/llvm
../llvm-2.6/configure --prefix=$INSTALLDIR --enable-bindings=none
--enable-targets=$TARGETS --enable-optimized
--with-llvmgccdir=$INSTALLDIR --with-llvm-externals=/home/rovitotv/
make ENABLE_OPTIMIZED=1
make install

To compile the llvm-gcc4.2-2.6 front end:
../llvm-gcc4.2-2.6/configure --target=i686-pc-linux-gnu
--with-tune=generic --with-arch=pentium4 --prefix=/home/rovitotv/llvm/
--enable-llvm=/home/rovitotv/llvm/ --enable-languages=c,c++
make
make install

Then I make sure that /home/rovitotv/llvm/bin is in my path. At this
point I copy/paste the example in the tutorial chapter 4, please see
code below. I have tried a few different commands to compile, here
are the variations:
g++ -g toy4_new_copy.cpp `llvm-config --cppflags --ldflags --libs core
jit native` -O3 -o toy4

g++ -g toy4.cpp `llvm-config --cppflags --ldflags --libs core jit
interpreter native` -O2 -o toy4

The compile completes with no errors or warnings. When I execute the
program then enter the expression 4+5; I get a seg fault :frowning: Here is
sample gdb output from a recent run:

(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/rovitotv/prog/llvm-tutorial/toy4

4+5;

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!

First, you have to call llvm-g++ to use the llvm-gcc front end, but it doesn’t matter here.

I’d like to suggest that you use pastebin to put your code and the send us the link, so that we can download it. The problem is that TheExecutionEngine is set to NULL (maybe because of a previous error), but it will be really better if you use pastebin.

I got the compile command from the Kaleidoscope documentation.

Thanks for the help after some further investigation I realized that
there is a difference between the documentation for example 4 on the
web here:
      http://llvm.org/releases/2.6/docs/tutorial/LangImpl4.html
And the same example that comes with the llvm distribution that is
installed during the build process here:
     file:///Users/rovitotv/llvm/docs/llvm/html/tutorial/LangImpl4.html
(Of course you have to change your path for your installation).

Thanks for the help.

Hum... looks like an outdated documentation. Kaleidoscope docs is
famous for being out-of-date and lots of people asking in the list why
is it not compiling.

I suggest you get the svn trunk and compile Kaleidoscope in site (you
probably did already if you got the llvm source and ran make) and see
what the makefile do to compile it. Also, the source in the site could
be quite outdated, I would start from the source tree.

cheers,
