Whilst trying to install a Ruby gem today I had this interesting problem with
Trace/BPT trap: 5, which doesn't show up in any useful Google
The problem was linked to using Homebrew, and presented itself like so:
Mac:~$ brew install openssl ==> Downloading http://openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz Already downloaded: /Library/Caches/Homebrew/openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz ==> perl ./Configure --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.1e --openssldir=/usr/local/etc/op ==> make depend ==> make /bin/sh: line 1: 39834 Trace/BPT trap: 5 /usr/bin/perl tools/c_rehash certs/demo make: *** [rehash.time] Error 133 make: *** [openssl] Error 2 make: *** [build_apps] Error 1
I started to wonder if it was linked to Perl, and since I was also running perlbrew I decided to switch it off for a moment and try again.
So if you see this weird error and you're using Homebrew + Perlbrew on OS X,
try doing a
perlbrew off before doing
