Subject Core Dump on Perl 5.14
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2011 06:22:39 GMT
Hey Gang,

Building a new server (well, old server, but only now getting mod_perl) and mod_perl is core
dumping. I built Perl 5.14.1 from source on it a few days ago:

    $ perl -V
    Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 14 subversion 1) configuration:
        osname=linux, osvers=2.6.24-23-server, archname=i686-linux-thread-multi

        cccdlflags='-fPIC', lddlflags='-shared -O2 -L/usr/local/lib -fstack-protector'

    Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): 
      Compile-time options: MULTIPLICITY PERL_DONT_CREATE_GVSV
                            PERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT PERL_MALLOC_WRAP

      Built under linux
      Compiled at Jul 11 2011 22:59:22

I just build Apache 2.2.19 from source, too, with this incantation:

    ./configure \
     --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 \
     --with-mpm=prefork \
     --with-included-apr \
     --enable-dav \
     --enable-dav-fs \
     --enable-log-config \
     --enable-authn-file \
     --enable-authz-host \
     --enable-authz-group \
     --enable-authz-user \
     --enable-mods-shared="rewrite info worker proxy deflate headers mod_auth include ssl
env mime-magic auth_digest expires dav dav_fs perl"

I built mod_perl 2 from SVN trunk like so:

    /usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL \
      MP_APXS=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs \

It reliably segfaults during `make test`. Following the debugging instructions, I get this
back trace:

And here's the context:

    (gdb) define curinfo
    Type commands for definition of "curinfo".
    End with a line saying just "end".
    >     printf "%d:%s\n", my_perl->Tcurcop->cop_line, \
    (gdb)          my_perl->Tcurcop->cop_file
    >  end
    (gdb) curinfo
    There is no member named Tcurcop.

Is there a missing symbol or something? line 100 of modper_env.c is:

    HV *hv = ENVHV;


    void modperl_env_clear(pTHX)
        HV *hv = ENVHV;
        U32 mg_flags;


        MP_TRACE_e(MP_FUNC, "[0x%lx] %%ENV = ();", modperl_interp_address(aTHX));



Anyone know what the problem might be?

This is Ubuntu 8.04 FWIW.
