[erlang-questions] R12B-0 patch for SMP emu on *other* hw than x86, x86_64, sparc32, and powerpc32
Thu Jan 3 14:45:20 CET 2008
OTP-7080 The runtime system with SMP support not using
the native atomic integer implementation part
of OTP could deadlock when run on a system with
more than one logical processor. That is, only
the runtime system with SMP support on other
hardware platforms than x86, x86_64, sparc32,
and powerpc32 are effected by this bug.
How to apply the attached patch (gnu tar and gnu patch is needed):
$ gtar -zxf otp_src_R12B-0.tar.gz
$ gpatch -ZNp0 < otp_src_R12B-0_OTP-7080.patch
patching file otp_src_R12B-0/erts/emulator/beam/erl_process_lock.c
$ # If you want, also apply the
$ # http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R12B-0-osp1.patch
$ # patch.
