Description Jeff Sheltren 2005-04-27 23:14:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Trying to run any (that I've tested) binary compiled for i386 causes a segmentation fault on x86_64 machine.  ldd does not work, nor am I able to generate core files from the seg fault - when 'ulimit -c' is increased, there is a kernel oops when trying to write out the core file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile program on i386 (or use Fedora's firefox.i386 rpm for example)
2. Run binary
3.
  

Actual Results:  Segmentation Fault.

Expected Results:  Program should run as normal.

Additional info:

For example, I have compiled a simple 'hello world' program on i386 machine (forsberg):
[jeff@forsberg testcode]$ cat hello.c
#include <stdio.h>

main() {
    printf("Hi there.\n");
}
[jeff@forsberg testcode]$ gcc hello.c -o hello
[jeff@forsberg testcode]$ ./hello
Hi there.
[jeff@forsberg testcode]$ ldd hello
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00759000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x0073c000)

Running the same program on an Intel x86_64 machine (hell) causes a segfault:
[jeff@hell testcode]$ ./hello
Segmentation fault
[jeff@hell testcode]$ ldd hello
/usr/bin/ldd: line 116:  5447 Segmentation fault      LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1 LD_WARN= LD_BIND_NOW= LD_LIBRARY_VERSION=$verify_out LD_VERBOSE= "$@"
[jeff@hell ~]$ ulimit -c unlimited
[jeff@hell testcode]$ ./hello
Segmentation fault

Message from syslogd@hell at Wed Apr 27 20:12:48 2005 ...
hell kernel: Oops: 0000 [5] SMP 

Message from syslogd@hell at Wed Apr 27 20:12:48 2005 ...
hell kernel: CR2: 00000000ffffe02c

This effects multiple fedora RPMs including firefox, for example.

I will attach dmesg output showing crashes for both firefox and above 'hello' example.

This bug is most certainly related with bug 155810, which was initially dealing
only with OOo.

And here is what I get when trying to start oowriter (or any OOo app):

Apr 28 13:15:19 localhost kernel: javaldx[9723]: segfault at 00000000ffffe01c

I hope that helps.

Confirmed also for kernel 1275-x86_64

with 1275 x86_64 kernel, I get the following for openoffice:

[gc@hummer ~]$ openoffice.org-1.9

dmesg:

BTW, this looks very similar to Bug 155790 too...

Roland's fix checked into CVS seems to work for me.
