Description Bill Chatfield 2000-10-02 02:26:11 UTC
Sun's JDK 1.2.2 FCS generates a segmentation fault immediately when it is
run.  This JDK worked correctly in RHL 6.2.  In fact, it is the only JDK
that will run Borland's JBuilder correctly.  I've done an strace to try to
find out what is happening, but I don't know.  I think this is a serious
problem.  I need to run Java and JBuilder.

Here is the last part of the strace of "java -version".

jdk-1.3-rc1 works fine for me in RH7

Comment 2 sh 2000-10-02 08:11:21 UTC
I am also having this problem with Sun's JDK 1.2.2-006 on rh7.0. I am getting
pretty much the same strace output as well.

blackdown.org's JDK 1.2.2-FCS and Sun's JDK 1.3-rc1 work fine however.

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2000-10-02 08:39:58 UTC
Not kernel I suspect. It may be a buggy app but it may be glibc compatiblity
flaws. Reassigned to

Comment 4 Bill Chatfield 2000-10-02 12:15:41 UTC
More info: I've verified some of the other results that are already posted. 
I've tried both Sun's jdk1.2.2 FCS and jdk1.2.2_006 and both have the same
problem.  However the blackdown jdk1.2.2 FCS works correctly.  The Blackdown
README.linux says it needs at least a glibc-2.1.2, so maybe it is a library

I haven't tried running IBM's or Sun's jdk1.3 because it doesn't run JBuilder
correctly.  I'd like to because those are much faster.  IBM's in particular runs
JBuilder much faster than Sun's jdk1.2.2, but, in the editor, Backspace deletes
2 characters instead of one with jdk1.3, which makes it unusable.  Bummer.

Comment 5 Juergen Kreileder 2000-10-03 02:33:53 UTC
This is a glibc bug that kills green threads VMs, it's fixed in glibc-2.1.94.
Actually it was Jakub who fixed the problem on Sep 14 
(see http://sources.redhat.com/ml/libc-hacker/2000-09/msg00085.html) but the fix 
was not included in RH 7.0.  
(Why do you guys base a product on a _test_ release of glibc-2.2? :-/  )

Juergen -- Blackdown Java-Linux

Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2000-10-03 05:40:56 UTC
Yes, this is fixed in glibc 2.1.94-1 rpmswhich have not been pushed as errata
yet. Maybe we'll push 2.1.95, provided it gets enough QA.
BTW: JDK worked just fine with glibc-2.1.92 up to -13 release, was
just broken by a last minute change to fix security issues in glibc.
On the other side, if we don't talk about JDK and some glibc 2.0.x
compatibility problems (both are fixed), glibc 2.1.9x is far more
stable than glibc 2.1.3 ever was (if you want me to start sending
you a testcase where glibc 2.1.3 is broken, it would be a lot
of cases and many of the fixes are not easily backportable).
Final glibc 2.2 should go out within a few weeks worst case and we'll
definitely provide updates to it.

Comment 9 Kevin Lam 2000-10-10 07:37:06 UTC
But JDK1.3 works fine in RH 7.0!

Comment 10 Need Real Name 2000-11-22 06:41:55 UTC
Actually,  I did notice a problem with Sun's JDK 1.3 on RH 7 which doesn't occur
with IBM JDK 1.3:

If "javac" fails to compile something due to a syntax problem,  the error if printed,
but the return code from javac is still 0.  This is wrong.  It fools GNU make,  for one
thing... bad compilations don't stop.

Verify it by trying to compile a bad .java file.  Then write a small shell script which
calls javac to do the compile,  but then prints the return value of the previous command.

Don't know if this bug fixes solves it,  as it addresses the JDK 1.2.2 core dump.
But the libc in RH7 seems to have problems.
Sticking with RH 6.2 until this sort of thing is worked out.

Comment 11 Bill Chatfield 2000-11-22 08:03:23 UTC
I have the bug fix installed and Sun's 1.3 javac still returns 0 when there are
compile errors.  So, the fix doesn't address the 1.3 javac issue.

I verified that IBM's JDK 1.3 javac and Sun's 1.2.2 javac both work correctly,
returning 1 when there are compile errors.

I also verified that Sun's 1.3 JDK works correctly in RHL 6.2, returning 1 when
there are compile errors, which does make it seem like there is a problem with
RHL 7.

Maybe you should open a new bug report.

Comment 12 logistic 2001-01-09 04:30:58 UTC
jdl118 not working with RHL7.0 Suggest

Comment 13 Bill Chatfield 2001-01-09 15:30:54 UTC
First, you need to make sure you have installed the update to glibc that Red 
Hat has provided to fix the problem with Sun's JDK 1.2.2.  Try it after the 
update.  If that fixes the problem, then it is the same issue.  If it doesn't 
fix the problem, then open a new bug report because it is a different issue 
from this bug report.

The best thing to do is run up2date and install all the available updates.

If you open a new bug report, Red Hat is going to need to know which vendor's 
JDK you're having a problem with.  Both IBM and Blackdown distribute 1.1.8 JDKs 
for i386 Linux.
