[gclist] Boehm GC & Solaris 2.5.1
Sat, 24 Jan 1998 03:25:23 +1100
Has anyone ported the Boehm (et al) collector to
SunOS 5.5.1 (a.k.a. Solaris 2.5.1)?
It seems that the signal handling has changed between Solaris 2.5
and 2.5.1. If the Mercury compiler is compiled on 2.5.1, then when run
it goes into an infinite loop; the loop appears to be in the
collector's signal handling code. If, on the other hand, the Mercury
compiler is compiled on 2.5, and then the binary is run on 2.5.1, it
dies with a segmentation fault, also in the collector's signal handling
