Some time ago I posted email about compiling Kaffe on
PC Windows/Cygwin32 system.
It works both for 0.9.1 and 0.9.2 with the following differences:
- 0.9.1 works with most demo programs except some thread samples
- 0.9.2 has Windows segmentation fault on simplest programs like
Recently I managed to learn enough of GDB to point the source code
that causes the problem. It goes like this:
Module baseClasses.c calls initialiseKaffe(). This function calls initThreads().
initThreads() calls createDaemon(&finaliserMan, "finaliser) because
GC_ENABLE is defined. This function calls THREAD_CREATE
which produces segmentation fault in module thread-internal.c, function
/* I might be dying */
if ( (TCTX(lastThread)->flags & THREAD_FLAGS_KILLED) != 0
&& blickInte == 1)
Any ideas why this happens?
