Description Tom Fleck 2008-06-17 19:54:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/184.108.40.206 Description of problem: ptrace behavior apparently changed big-time between FC3=RHEL4=2.6.9 and FC6=2.6.18, such that continuing the debugged process with a signal after attaching no longer works. Attached is my test program. It's long and verbose, I'm sorry, but I wanted to be clear. As comments say, there are 2 ways to build it that manifest the bug in different ways. Tom Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): glibc-2.5-3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compile test program: gcc ptracebug.c -o ptrace_from_parent 2. Run test program: ./ptrace_from_parent Actual Results: --- Show that ptrace(CONT, blocked-signal) fails on FC6 If test dones't print PASSED, it failed. AFTER FORK, CHILD = 3440 APP=3440: wait for SIGUSR1 from DEB=3439 AFTER FORK, PARENT = 3439 DEB=3439 sleeping for a second DEB=3439: ptrace attach to APP=3440 DEB=3439: CONT APP=3440 with signal 10 DEB=3439 looks ok PID=3439: DEB OK Expected Results: If test dones't print PASSED, it failed. AFTER FORK, CHILD = 13766 APP=13766: wait for SIGUSR1 from DEB=13765 AFTER FORK, PARENT = 13765 DEB=13765 sleeping for a second DEB=13765: ptrace attach to APP=13766 DEB=13765: CONT APP=13766 with signal 10 DEB=13765 looks ok PID=13765: DEB OK APP=13766 sleeping for a second ripley:tjf 265>> APP=13766 looks ok === TEST PASSED!

Comment 1 petrosyan 2008-06-17 21:38:23 UTC
Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 are no longer maintained. Can you reproduce this bug in Fedora 8 or Fedora 9?
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2008-06-18 02:18:09 UTC
This has nothing to do with glibc. ptrace is a syscall.
Comment 3 petrosyan 2008-06-27 17:10:21 UTC
Tom, can you reproduce this bug in Fedora 8 or Fedora 9?
Comment 4 Tom Fleck 2008-06-27 17:14:05 UTC
Sorry, I don't have those available yet. I've got a vmware machine with FC9 on it now but no gcc yet. I'll comment when I've done that.
Comment 5 Tom Fleck 2008-06-27 17:50:11 UTC
The bug reproduces on FC9 using test-case binary built on rhel4 with gcc 3.4.6, and a binary built on rhel5 with gcc 4.1.2. Is that good enough? ...Tom
Comment 6 petrosyan 2008-06-27 18:57:56 UTC
I could reproduce your bug by compiling and running your test-binaries on Fedora 9 using gcc-4.3.0 on a x86_64 architecture.
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 01:40:26 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '9'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 18:05:57 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
