Description Tomas Mraz 2007-07-23 16:18:14 EDT
w3m crashes on x86_64 immediately with segfault. I don't know whether it crashes on other architectures as well. The crash is in gc library so I'm cc-ing gc library maintainer. 0x00002aaaaaaf2ec9 in GC_malloc (bytes=24) at thread_local_alloc.c:176 176 GC_FAST_MALLOC_GRANS(result, granules, tiny_fl, DIRECT_GRANULES, (gdb) bt #0 0x00002aaaaaaf2ec9 in GC_malloc (bytes=24) at thread_local_alloc.c:176 #1 0x000000000045ccbe in newGeneralList () at textlist.c:23 #2 0x000000000040fcd3 in main (argc=1, argv=0x7fff0ced58b8, envp=<value optimized out>) at main.c:408 #3 0x0000003b51a1daa4 in __libc_start_main () from /lib64/libc.so.6 #4 0x00000000004045d9 in _start ()
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2007-07-24 00:54:50 EDT
Reproduced with current packages in development. (Doesn't happen with f7 x86_64 for me.) Could you try reverting to gc-6.8 to see if that makes a difference?
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-07-24 05:24:58 EDT
Yes, reverting gc to 6.8 helps. And rebuilding w3m against gc-7.0 helps too. So that means ABI break in gc. So all dependencies of gc should be rebuilt.

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2007-07-24 05:28:48 EDT
Ccing owners of the above packages.
Comment 4 Denis Leroy 2007-07-24 05:34:05 EDT
I would prefer if gc were held back to 6.8, since it's only in updates-testing. This is a gc bug after all, it's not meant to break ABI. Looking at the gc mailing list, there seems to be a number of issues with 7.0, i.e. ABI could break again with further 7.x updates.

But for Fedora 8 I'd leave that on the gc maintainer. Rex?
Comment 6 Parag Nemade 2007-07-24 05:38:50 EDT
on Tomas Mraz request, I already started w3m build on koji for devel branch.
Comment 7 Denis Leroy 2007-07-24 05:41:41 EDT
Comment 8 Parag Nemade 2007-07-24 05:47:10 EDT
w3m-0.5.2-2 built successfully against gc-7.0
Comment 9 Denis Leroy 2007-07-24 07:19:15 EDT
Reopening for F-7. I submitted a patch to work around this for bug 248700.
Comment 10 Parag Nemade 2007-07-24 07:22:00 EDT
will wait for new release of gc for F7 and then accordingly release new version of w3m for F7 only.
