I just tried the patch to see if its addressed some issues I've seen
but didnt think too much about.

I've noticed x86_64 strace has issues with i386 support / java /open

I dont know if this is interesting to you while looking at x86_64.

java typescript will be attached.

Also, strace -f /usr/bin/ooffice cuts short with

[pid   410] mprotect(0x4e320000, 8192, PROT_READ) = 0
[pid   410] mprotect(0x4e1f9000, 4096, PROT_READ) = 0
[pid   410] set_thread_area(0xffffd8a4) = 0
[pid   410] munmap(0xa0000000, 174549)  = 0
[pid   410] chdir("/usr/lib/ooo-1.1/program") = 0
[pid   410] exit_group(0)               = ?
PANIC: attached pid 410 exited

32 bit java strace on x86_64 segfault

This has nothing whatsoever to do with the patch I created.
Comment 5 Ulrich Drepper 2004-12-12 15:02:57 EST
This is not a general discussion about strace on x86-64.  If you have
specific problems, create new, separate bugs.  Stop adding anything
here which is not directly related to the patch.
Comment 6 Roland McGrath 2005-02-01 23:13:49 EST
You really ought to separate patches for different problems, file reports with
real summaries, and include ChangeLog entries with your patches.
I have put these fixes in upstream.
Comment 7 Tim Powers 2005-05-19 17:10:03 EDT
