Segmentation fault in aspell
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
With aspell-0.32.5-1 on Alpha trying this command:
$ aspell -c /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/sidecap/sc2demo.tex
results in the following output on a screen:
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 0000020000010998: 0000020000758544 29 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 00000200000109a0: 0000020000758544 2d 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 0000020000010998: 00000200007590f4 29 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 00000200000109a0: 00000200007590f4 2d 1
Not very useful or exciting.
This is platform specific (works on IA32) - Matt?
Yes, I would think so. I submitted that for Alpha. You will not see "unaligned
traps" on ia32 but "Segmentation fault" you might. :-)
Handing this over to Matt, who knows a lot more about Alphas than I do.
The four unaligned traps are in the dynamic loader for any C++ application. I'm
trying to reproduce the segfault now.
FWIW, it segfaults on ia64 too. ;)
This was fixed for the final.
