Bug #3600

HP-UX compilation

Added by Graham Agnew over 5 years ago. Updated about 3 years ago.

ruby -v:ruby 1.9.2dev (2010-07-11 revision 28618) [ia64-hpux11.23] Backport:



I've had reasonable success with compiling 1.9.1 on HP-UX. But 1.9.2 has been problematic since preview3 came out. It seems the main issue is with threads. A very simple example (as follows) works fine on 1.9.1 but the thread never seems to start on 1.9.2-rc2.

thr = Thread.new { puts "thr start"; sleep 1; puts "thr exit" }
puts "main join"
puts "main exit"

Sometimes it blocks indefinitely, and when I press control-C to stop it, I get a bus error:

try_thread.rb: [BUG] Bus Error

You may have encountered a bug in the Ruby interpreter or extension libraries.

Some other times I get a seg-fault. Can anyone point me to changes to threading in 1.9.2 so that I can investigate this more quickly and maybe find a solution?

HP-UX is not supported. I'm sorry, but please create a patch yourself.
If you provide us the patch and it looks benign to other platforms, we may apply it to trunk.
