I’ve got a small gtk+ program that is driving me up the wall, it crashes in a quite a few different ways which leads me to believe that the interaction of the threads is producing some unexpected behaviors. I suppose there could be a buffer overflow somewhere in my C code, but the arrays are really simple and there is hardly any dynamic memory in it, and I am pretty unfamiliar with threads so I think that is where my error is more likely to be. The stack traces tend to show the error occurring in gtk+ functions, which makes it hard to figure out where I am screwing up.
However I just kind of noticed that there is a gthreads library, and I just started building with it and so I am calling g_thread_init(NULL) at the start of the program, which did improve things a little bit (I’m at least getting more meaningful error messages now) but I am still using all the pthread code from before I realized there was a gthread library. Is this causing my problem? It wouldn’t be that hard to rewrite this but I’d rather not do it only to end up in the same spot I am in right now only with a different threads library.
Also, I feel like I’ve been getting all the relevant debug packages I can find and I’m still not getting function names in the stack trace for this stuff:
#3 0x00007ffff4481c76 in ?? () from /lib64/libc.so.6 #7 0x00007ffff79209f8 in ?? () from /usr/lib64/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 #14 0x00007ffff757628a in ?? () from /usr/lib64/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0
I do get function names for other functions in libc and libgtk-x11-2.0, but I don’t see any function names for any in the libgdk-x11-2.0. I think I must just be missing a debug package or two, I have plenty of disk space so I was wondering if there wasn’t a metapackage or two that I could get that would just give me all the ones a might need even if I end up with a whole bunch that I don’t need.
Thanks for any help,
