I can't reproduce the bug. Could you please indicate your GNU/Linux distribution, and host gcc version ? I see a segfault, quite weird :(

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by greve@…

The distribution is Debian GNU/Linux (etch).

gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20060729 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-10)

I've now tried the same thing on another machine (freshly installed Debian GNU/Linux etch) with gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20060613 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-5) -- and get the exact same problem.

When running paretonormal on the commandline, it segfaults after 31789.
This looks suspiciously like a double overrun to me.

So I tried changing the compile options by removing the optimization (-O2) and compiled it by hand by doing "gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -Wstrict-prototypes -Wall -I ../include -DRESOLVE_HOSTNAMES -o paretonormal paretonormal.c -lm" by hand.

The resulting paretonormal does not segfault when run -- it terminates properly after 31789.

So I investigated a little more, and -Os does not seem to break it for me -- only -O1 and -O2 do.

As a next step I tried to see whether there is any particular option that breaks it and wrote a script to loop through the optimizations that are included in -O1, but none of them did. Adding one more level let me loop through all the tuples. This also did not segfault.

So I do not have a conclusion, but hope that maybe it'll help to take one more step along the way.

Should be fixed with revision [4635], can you please have a try ?

Unfortunately the problem persists.

It seems that you've tried to add a patch that sets the CCFLAGS to -Os. As far as I could see, that was the default for the iproute package also before -- but the OpenWRT build system seems to force other flags on it. Check out the make call:

make -j1 -C /opt/SVN/whiterussian/openwrt/build_mipsel/iproute2-2.6.11-050330/netem HOSTCC=gcc CFLAGS="-D_GNU_SOURCE -O2 -Wstrict-prototypes -Wall -I ../include -DRESOLVE_HOSTNAMES"

These explicit options override the ones built into the Makefile, and thus the compilation call still is

gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE -O2 -Wstrict-prototypes -Wall -I ../include -DRESOLVE_HOSTNAMES -o paretonormal paretonormal.c -lm

and therefore the

./paretonormal >paretonormal.dist

still segfaults.

I think the trick would be to take out that patch again, and find out where exactly the OpenWRT build system forces the -O2 on the package and change that.

Can you have a try at [4636] ?

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by anonymous

This has fixed the problem for me -- it now appears to happily compile all the way through.
