Subject: [OMPI devel] 1.7.0rc5 - make check failure on FreeBSD-6.3/amd64
From: Paul Hargrove (phhargrove_at_[hidden])
Date: 2012-10-30 23:13:00

On my FreeBSD-6.3/amd64 platform I see "make check" failing 3 tests under
test/datatype (see below). Of course "make" stops after that, making it
possible that additional tests might fail later.

However, my records do show that the v1.5 branch was just fine on this
machine, as was the trunk on or about Feb 21, 2012. So, unless the failing
tests are new THIS IS A REGRESSION.

Newer FreeBSD-7.2/amd64, FreeBSD-8.2/amd64 and FreeBSD-9.0/amd64 are all OK.

The failures:

$ grep -B1 ^FAIL $HOME/OMPI/openmpi-1.7rc5-freebsd6-amd64/LOG/check.log
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
FAIL: position

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
FAIL: ddt_test
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
FAIL: ddt_raw
Using gdb to get a backtrace from the generated core files shows a stack
over 1300 frames deep, which I suspect is either evidence of a corrupted
stack (buffer overflow?) or of infinite recursion.  There are no symbols
with the backtrace, just numeric addresses.
This is a rather old system
