Description jcea 2015-05-23 16:32:06 UTC
ccache 3.2.2. I do a plain "./configure" for configuration and "make" completes flawlessly.

Nevertheless any "should be hit" in the cache results in a "core dump".

Doing a "make test" I get this

jcea@ubuntu:~/video/zz/zz/ccache-3.2.2$ make test

I get the very same result when testing in another system with gcc 4.9.2.
Comment 1 Joel Rosdahl 2015-05-23 20:31:41 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. Such a segmentation fault in the test suite should be noticed by many others, so it's very strange. It would be super useful if you could help me debug this problem since I highly suspect that it's tied to your environment in some way.

The first thing to do is to find out what segfaults and the easiest is probably to run the basedir test suite like this:

    sh -x test.sh basedir >test.log 2>&1

Look in test.log for the command preceding the "Segmentation fault" output. Most likely, it's the ccache invocation on line 1558 in test.sh that crashes. Is my guess correct?

Next thing to do would be to run a debugger on the core file to get a backtrace. Would that be something you could do?

Thanks in advance!

I agree that this is suspicious but I am getting the same core dump both in a Ubuntu machine and in a different Solaris machine, with different versions of GCC, etc.

After executing "sh -x test.sh basedir >test.log 2>&1" I see:

+ [ 1 != 1 ]
+ cd ..
+ cd dir2
+ pwd
+ pwd
+ CCACHE_BASEDIR=/home/jcea/video/zz/zz/ccache-3.2.2/testdir.997/dir2 /home/jcea

Running under GDB I get this:

Thanks! Nothing unusual there, except of course that it crashes.

What version of libz (zlib) are you using?

Would it be possible for you to debug this further by e.g. compiling without -O2 and stepping through the execution of the ccache command on line 1565 in test.sh? Or would it be possible for me to get some temporary account on one of your systems so that I could do the same?

jcea@jcea.es, any thoughts on my last questions? I would love to be able to reproduce this problem.
Comment 5 Joel Rosdahl 2015-08-15 14:35:51 UTC
jcea@jcea.es: Can this problem still be reproduced?
Comment 6 Joel Rosdahl 2015-10-08 18:09:06 UTC
Closing this bug due to lack of feedback.

Don't hesitate to reopen the bug if there are more information.
