Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-2733) Crash during initialization using Xcode 8.3
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 13:39:00 GMT


Jacob S. Barrett commented on GEODE-2733:

Some information posted in an open database of known Apple bugs.

The problem persists in 8.3.3 and 9.0.0 beta.

>                 Key: GEODE-2733
>                 URL:
>             Project: Geode
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: native client
>            Reporter: Michael Dodge
> Circa 27 March 2017, Apple released the macOS 10.12.4 and Xcode 8.3 updates. After applying
those updates, all native client executables (e.g., unit tests, integration tests, quickstarts)
crashes with a SIGSEGV/EXC_BAD_ACCESS with pthread_mutex_lock() which is part of the initialization
of the ACE libraries. We don't know whether it's caused by an incompatibility between ACE
and the 10.12.4 runtimes (e.g., a struct has changed in size) or if it's an actual bug in
the runtimes. Mike Martell found a bug that has already been filed with Apple about Emacs
crashing with pthread-related problems after this update, so our current theory is that there's
a problem in the pthreads library from Apple.
> UPDATE: Dave Barnes installed just macOS 10.12.4 and has had no problems. Thus, it appears
that Xcode 8.3 is the culprit. Anecdotal evidence suggests that Xcode 8.3 has other problems,
too, which may or may not be related to the crashes.
