SIGCHLD crashes beam
Thu May 18 19:25:50 CEST 2006
I am trying to make a cross compiled erlang work, x86_64 to x86. It appears to compile fine but segfaults as soon as I run "erl" from the command line.
After some tracing, I note that the beam process segfaults immediately after receiving a SIGCHLD. The SIGCHLD is created by an exiting inet_gethost process.
This signal handler does *not* appear to run:
/* Handle SIGCHLD signals. */
#if (defined(SIG_SIGSET) || defined(SIG_SIGNAL))
static RETSIGTYPE onchld(void)
static RETSIGTYPE onchld(int signum)
ASSERT(0); /* We should *never* catch a SIGCHLD signal */
children_died = 1;
I note that check_children() at line 3283 does get called some time
prior to crashing.
I am continuing to debug, but I thought I'd throw this out now in case
anyone can recognize what is happening and help me out. Version is R10B-10.
