Description jmegq 1999-03-10 19:51:19 UTC
With glibc 2.1, pdksh coredumps on startup.
GDB says this occurs in trap.c around line 34, where
it attempts to fill in a list of signal descriptions
using sys_siglist.

Workaround: after running configure, comment out
the HAS_SYS_SIGLIST line in config.h, then compile
as usual.  sys_siglist says it's "only for compatability"
in 2.1, but it appears not to be so compatable...

*** Bug 1408 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Ksh segfaults on any script I try to run. For example:


echo foo

------- Additional Comments From  03/16/99 10:53 -------
Actually it is enough to invoke 'ksh' from command line to see it
crashing. It is still relevant in 5.8.6 (pdksh-5.2.12-7)

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-17 20:48:59 UTC
Fixed in pdksh-5.3.12-2 (by checking that sys_siglist[i] != NULL).
