|Summary:||ASTERISK-18950: weak (linker) attribute handling for MAC/OS in optional_api.h breaks x86 executable (seg fault)|

|Environment:||Asterisk 184.108.40.206-rc4, i586 PC, gcc 3.4||Attachments:||( 0) config.log|
|Description:||The used gcc is version 3.4 which has weak attribute support (weak only). While building the target is succesful, running Asterisk immediately ends up in a seg fault.|
In optional_api.h the set HAVE_ATTRIBUTE_weak flag chooses code for MACOS which seems not to be suitable for a PC.
Manually undefining the HAVE_ATTRIBUTE_weak flag in autoconfig.h solved the problem in my environment for now.

Hopefully someone who uses MacOSX from the community who has an interest in this will take this up and resolve the issue. Thanks for reporting it!

I'm not sure if you've really understood this issue. For MacOSX Users this current behaviour should be fine, but not for i586/PC/gcc 3.4(at least) like me. So I don't know if the interest of the MacOSX community is really high, We maybe need MacOSX implementors which are PC-friendly to fix this, and respect the pluralistic world of operation systems ;-)
