SubjectRe: Is this a kernel problem? segmentation fault
From
Date
Bugs in the kernel may cause seg fault, but when that happens you should
get an oops in /var/log/messages and/or on the console.

I started by debugging this program where I was getting a segmentation fault. I used gdb and traced the bug to a call instruction. I dissasembled the code and stepped through the instructions. The program got a segmentation fault when it executed an assembly language call instruction. Using gdb I was able to disassemble the instructions at the called address. Why can gdb disasemble instructions at a call address and a call to that address fails with a segmentation fault? Is this a kernel problem? I am using kernel version 2.2.15. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I tried kernel 2.4.4 and the same thing happens. I have searched this mailing list archive and did find some posts about segmentation faults/ kernel bugs, but they did not resolve this problem. I use egcs 1.1-2 and ld 2.9.5
versions.
