I played around a bit more
- The verion in debian-unstable crashes during startup on my home PC,
an old AMD Duron running 2.4.27
- The version in debian-testing crashes with a bit of provocation
on a server at work:
| :~/corelatus/api/erl/test$ /usr/bin/erl
| Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 126.96.36.199 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]
| Eshell V188.8.131.52 (abort with ^G)
| + Stopped /usr/bin/erl
| :~/corelatus/api/erl/test$ fg
| Segmentation fault
That machine is a Pentium II, also running 2.4.27
That's only two machines, but it doesn't really look hardware related.
The startup from the from-source-compile I usually use:
| Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 184.108.40.206 [source] [hipe]
So, you have threads enabled and I don't. A fresh compile from R9C-2
source with --enable-threads produces exactly the same symptoms as in
the debian package, i.e. segfault if I ^Z and the 'fg'.
The problem seems to be related to threaded IO. Anyone have some clues
for how to proceed?
