#507 handle_fault SIGSEGV

clisp (524)


just downloaded CLISP-2.47 on my Ubuntu system.
(uname output: Linux kiste 2.6.27-8-generic #1 SMP Thu Nov 6 17:38:14 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux).

CLISP crashes after "./configure --cbc build" with the following error message:

*** - handle_fault error2 ! address = 0x0 not in [0x334a22000,0x334cfdee8) !
SIGSEGV cannot be cured. Fault address = 0x0.

I tried to install an uptodate CLISP since the version shipped with Ubuntu (2.44) crashes with a very similar error message when I run my application.

Thanks for any help,

PS: it seems it's not possible to report bugs anonymously, which doesn't make it too easy for people not having a SourceForge account to report bugs.

    this is the standard request for more information.
    1. what is your platform?
    ("uname -a" on a Unix system)
    compiler version? libc (on Linux)?
    2. where did you get the sources? when?
    (absolute dates are prefered over the relative ones)
    3. how did you build CLISP? (what command, options &c)
    please do a clean build (remove your build directory and
    build CLISP with "./configure --build build" or at least
    do a "make distclean" before "make")
    4. if you are using pre-built binaries, the problem is likely
    to be in the incompatibilities between the platform on which
    the binary was built and yours;
    please try compiling the sources.
    5. what is the output of (lisp-implementation-version)?
    6. what is the value of *features*?
    7. please supply the full output (copy and paste)
    of all the error messages.
    If you cannot build CLISP, you can obviously skip 5 and 6,
    but then you should provide more information in 1.
    please see <http://clisp.cons.org/clisp.html#bugs>
    for more information.

    PS. This bug report is now marked "pending"
    and will auto-close unless you respond
    (in which case it will auto-re-open).
