Hangs on OS X

Post by Auria » Sat Oct 30, 2010 7:29 pm

Hi,

CodeLite hangs on OSX when I hit the "stop debugger" button :

This is the latest stable (2.7.0)
I can't test SVN for the reasons we discussed on IRC ( build system issues :) ) so I don't know if this still happens in SVN

I may add that this does not always happen, it happens mostly when the debugging process didn't start correctly (see other thread I just created)

In thread 14, I'm constantly in UnixProcessImpl::Read (); so either UnixProcessImpl::Read () does not return, either it's called continuously instead of stopping like was requested.

Thread 17 seems very interesting. It's blocking on waitpid, but in this case the process in question is already terminated. I'm not sure how waitpid would behave in this case; here it seems that it hangs.

*bump*

Eran, this is a major annoyance, could you comment? :)

If the process has terminated, they should not have been waiting indefinitely under waitpid..
however, I changed all calls to waitpid in UnixProcessImpl / ProcessReaderThread to pass the WNOHANG option this should avoid the hanging

Try to update svn and give it another try

Hi Auria,

I changed the way codelite performs clean up for terminated processes.
It is now done in a signal handler for SIGCHLD in addition, I added the WNOHANG option to the waitpid() system call to prevent it from blocking.

I tested it under Ubuntu 10.10 and it seems to be functioning properly (i.e. no 'defunct' processes leftovers, no hangs etc)

Please give it a try and let me know
Eran

Hi Eran,

the change looks good :)
It's hard to reproduce the situations that caused the bug initially, since I could reproduce it mostly when "sleep" tty detection failed - now with the built-in console it's much harder to reproduce the bug. So I'll consider it fixed, and we can reopen this issue if I ever see it again :)
