[Octave-bug-tracker] [bug #53733] Panic/segfault when calling Java metho

Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2018 16:21:32 -0400 (EDT)

Follow-up Comment #29, bug #53733 (project octave):

I tested several combinations of octave and GNU/Linux kernel versions.
The TLDR; of this comment is that 4.0.3 runs the test fine on kernels
4.9 and 4.15, whereas 4.2.2 produces a segment violation error on all
tested kernels (4.9, 4.14 and 4.15). Combined with the previous
comment #28 this really points to a specific octave bug.

I ran

gdb --args octave --no-gui --norc

then typed 'run' to launch octave

then pasted line by line:

imwrite(zeros(1000), "foo.png");
graph = javaObject("Baz");



*octave 4.0.3-3*

GNU/Linux kernel 4.9.0-6-amd64 (Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02))
libc 2.24
GNU gdb (Debian 7.12-6)

GNU/Linux kernel 4.15.0-3-amd64 (Debian 4.15.17-1 (2018-04-19))
libc 2.27
GNU gdb (Debian 7.12-6+b1)

No error/no segfault under gdb. Only error is from gdb openjdk plugin:

>> javaaddpath(".")
Installing openjdk unwinder
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 52, in <module>
    class Types(object):
line 66, in Types
    nmethodp_t = gdb.lookup_type('nmethod').pointer()
gdb.error: No type named nmethod.

The other instruction execute fine.


*octave 4.2.2*

GNU/Linux kernel 4.9.0-6-amd64 (Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02))
libc 2.24
GNU gdb (Debian 7.12-6)

under gdb:

octave:1> javaaddpath(".")
error: javaMethod: /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-amd64/lib/server/libjvm.so:
failed to load: /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-amd64/lib/server/libjvm.so: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
error: called from
    javaaddpath at line 52 column 13

=> I guess this reflects a dependency problem in Debian:
octave 4.2.2 should depend on openjdk-9

once openjdk-9 is installed the 'javaaddpath(".")' instruction indeed passes
without error. A segfault is produced by the last instruction
'graph.addNodes(1:1000000);'. Full log:

This being the stock octave from Debian without symbols, the backtrace is


The 4.0.9 kernel was a fresh Debian stretch/stable install, where octave is at
4.0.3. Octave 4.2.2 and openjdk-9 where then added by adding the
buster/testing sources to apt.

Conversely, the 4.14/4.15 kernel was a testing system with octave at 4.2.2,
then downgraded to 4.0.3 to test this combination also.
