Web app not starting - libicu


I have had several web apps deployed on my Gentoo Linux server for over a year now with no issues. However, since Xojo 2015r2 these apps no longer start.

I noted the release notes and installed dev-libs/icu. I attempted to use both dev-libs/icu-52.1 (version 52 is noted working from other threads) and dev-libs/icu-54.1-r1 (the highest version available on Gentoo) and the same problem occurs with both versions. I receive the following error every time after installing dev-libs/icu:

# ./numfieldtest Runtime Error Please report what caused this error along with the information below. RuntimeCore/ICUStable.cpp: 128 Failure Condition: functionPtr Could not resolve u_strFromUTF8 Aborted

This example is a basic web app with one extremely basic control.

I should note that dev-libs/icu was compiled with both 64 and 32 bit libraries.

I realize Gentoo is not a supported build - just looking for ideas.

Can you tell me what version (and whether the distro is 32 or 64 bit) of Gentoo you are using?

3.17.7-gentoo stable 64 bit

For 32 bit support are you using the emul-linux packages or the new multilib/abi_x86_32 stuff, or something else?

Thank you for your response.

All of the emul-linux packages are masked as of 2015-03-28, and I have not unmasked them:
News item: https://gentoo.org/support/news-items/2015-03-28-true-multilib.html
My system: https://www.refheap.com/99881

So, I am using ABI_X86:

[code]~ $ equery u dev-libs/icu
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[ : I - package is installed with flag ]
[ Colors : set, unset ]

  • Found these USE flags for dev-libs/icu-54.1-r1:
    U I
    • abi_x86_32 : 32-bit (x86) libraries
    • doc : Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
    • examples : Install examples, usually source code
    • static-libs : Build static versions of dynamic libraries as well[/code]
