Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143737
possible array index error
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
I just tried to compile package libunwind-0.98.2-2 from
Redhat Fedora development tree on a 32 bit Athlon box.
The compiler said
dwarf/Gparser.c(529): warning #175: subscript out of range
The source code is
&& (rs->reg[UNW_TDEP_SP].where == DWARF_WHERE_SAME))
Upon investigation, array reg has 19 entries, and UNW_TDEP_SP seems
to have a value in excess of 140.
I'm not sure if this is a real bug or not, for the target ia64 machine.
Suggest code inspection for the ia64 case.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
At present, libunwind is only being supported by Red Hat on ia64 for
the purpose of gdb stack unwinding. It is not officially supported by
Red Hat for other systems, though it is documented to have minimal
capabilities on x86 and x86_64. Regarding the problem cited, it
definitely appears to be a problem as you have noted. For ia64, the
dwarf directory is not built so the problem is avoided. The
recommendation is that you open a problem report directly with the
libunwind development team if you wish to use it on x86 or x86_64.
For x86* libunwind please check its frysk
fork downloadable as:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/frysk co libunwind
as there is ongoing x86* libunwind development.
