Parrot r41563, partcl revision 745

running t_tcl/dict.test in a partcl checkout (after running enough of 'make spectest' to checkout the spec tests), segfaults with the following backtrace.

Change History

Changed 5 years ago by coke

Segfault is gone; leaving case open for bacek to find original cause (he just removed the symptom.)

  • component changed from none to core

  • owner set to whiteknight

Several of the functions in that backtrace no longer exist after the PCC refactor: Parrot_runops_fromc_args, Parrot_runops_fromc_args, parrot_pass_args_fromc, Parrot_process_args, convert_arg_from_pmc, etc.

If this segfault no longer occurs, this ticket should be closed. The underlying archetecture of the PCC system has changed so much that it would be a different issue entirely.

Are you still getting this problem in partcl?

If not, then can ticket be closed as whiteknight suggests?

Thank you very much.

This version of partcl isn't being developed atm, in favor of partcl-nqp, so it's unlikely I'll be able to duplicate this segfault. Feel free to close the ticket.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

Okay, we can open a new ticket if this problem emerges in an actively-developed project or branch.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
