Description (last modified by igloo) (diff)
(Just so we don't forget) On powerpc/linux both yi and hmp3 segfault immediately when built the -fvia-C or -fasm ways, with (in the case of hmp3):
(gdb) where #0 0x100529d4 in __stginit_Binary_ () #1 0x1046ed78 in StgRun () #2 0x104671e0 in hs_add_root () #3 0x10467128 in startupHaskell () #4 0x10464f18 in main ()
and in stginit_Main_() with yi.
They die before any code in Main.main is executed. Not much other info seems available. Both these applications are built with the ncurses binding, and this appears to be the same problem repored to the lists back in June 05 by J. Bobbio:
A test case is attached to that mail. To reproduce the hmp3 crash:
$ darcs get --partial
And follow the cabalised build process. Both applications work on apple/powerpc, interestingly enough.
