Linux compilation and assert


#1

When I compile an amalgamated version of the latest (GIT) juce version in Linux Ubuntu, if in the Makefile I use the -O2 or -O3 flags it crashes.

But if I use the -Os flag (as in the Juce original Makefile) it works.
What is the “inner” reason for that?

Also: has anyone tried to build a Linux Juce Release version with these options:

#define JUCE_64BIT_ATOMICS_UNAVAILABLE 1 //having some linking problems
#define JUCE_FORCE_DEBUG 1
#define JUCE_LOG_ASSERTIONS 1

All the assersions of :

AtomicTester <float>::testFloat(); 

(called by SimpleUnitTests::runBasicTests) fail for me.
Do I need yo worry?

Thanks

PS I’m so picky because I’m actually testing the library. Sorry for that!

Can you post platform-specific stuff in the appropriate forum, please!

I’m afraid my psychic powers are not strong enough to tell you what’s wrong when all you say is “it crashes”… Do you mean the compiler or the program? If the program, then where does it crash??

Yes, definitely! If your compiler hasn’t even got 32-bit atomic ops, then it’ll break a lot of code. Are you running an ancient version of gcc or something?


#3

It crashes in the program (not during compilation).
And strangely it crashes inside

 [1] initialiseJuce_GUI
 [2] LookAndFell:setDefaultLookAndFeel(0)
 [3] defaultLF=new LookAndFeel()
 [4] ...somewhere inside the LookAndFeel() contructor...

soory I cannot be more specific but I’m in Release mode (in Debug all is working perfectly).

About the AtomicTester ::testFloat(). I see there are several tests:

  AtomicTester<int>::testInteger()
  AtomicTester<unsigned int>::testInteger();
  ...      
  AtomicTester<int*>::testInteger();
  AtomicTested<float>::testFloat();

but only the last one fails.
My gcc --version is 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu4).


#4

Must be some kind of compiler flag that you’ve set… Where did your makefile come from?


#5

My Linux Ubuntu configuration is the following:

Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)
GNOME 2.22.3 (Ubuntu 2008-07-09)
Kernel 2.6.24-28-generic (#1 SMP Wed Aug 25 15:25:41 UTC 2010)
GCC version 4.2.4 (i486-linux-gnu)

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
PROBLEM 1. Linux Runtime crash in CONFIG=Release with -O2
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I
(1) downloaded the latest GIT version
(2) modified the “extras/example projects/Build/Linux/Makefile”:

#CFLAGS += $(CPPFLAGS) $(TARGET_ARCH) -Os
CFLAGS += $(CPPFLAGS) $(TARGET_ARCH) -O2

(3) run Hello world

> cd "extras/example projects/Build/Linux"
> make CONFIG=Release
    ......
    > build/HelloWorld

I get at runtime an “Aborted” message (NOTE: If I use -Os it runs without errors):

Problem 2. Linux CONFIG=Release assertion failed

I

(1) downloaded the latest GIT version 
(2) I did NOT modify the Makefile (so the -Os is used) 
(3) I modified the AppConfig.h of the Hello world adding these two lines:

#define  JUCE_FORCE_DEBUG        1
#define  JUCE_LOG_ASSERTIONS   1

 (4) run HelloWorld

> cd "extras/example projects/Build/Linux"
> make CONFIG=Release

this is the output I get:

Well, I’m running ubuntu, with gcc 4.4 and don’t get any of that stuff. I thought it was gcc4.2 that had full support for atomics, but maybe it was 4.3…? You should update it anyway, 4.4 is a better compiler.


#7

Your CXXFLAGS for your project should include “-DLINUX=1 -D_DEBUG=1 -DDEBUG=1” if you build a debug build.


#8

Thanks for the tip.
But the problem seems to be specific for the release version.
I guess there is some optimization made by -O2 (or -O3) which breaks the release version.
I’m actually installing the latest Ubuntu version to see if it is a problem of Ubuntu or gcc.


#9

Very unlikely to be ubuntu’s fault, but it could indeed be that version of gcc, so you should update that.


#10

Updated Linux config:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) 4.4.3

It works. Both problems solved.
