Re: [Gcl-devel] Make still fails on WinXP for ANSI

Hi Camm and everyone,

Apologies for the appearance of non-activity on my part.  My WinXP machine has been struggling for awhile and has given up the ghost -- so to say.  I knew this was going to happen eventually but didn't expect it presently.  (It's struggles may have been behind my inability to build a GCL-ansi variant on WinXP.)

Since the only reason to try and get an WinXP machine up and running would be to help out with WinXP tests of GCL -- and I don't know who might be using WinXP still -- I'm not sure it's worth an entire machine to do this. 

If you all think it is important to have an winXP-proven build I can pursue putting a virtual machine on my Vista box and install XP into it -- but event this wouldn't be a `real' WinXP installation.

What do you all think?  Do we try to make sure it works on WinXP or do we stop at 2.6.7 for XP?

OK, this report is more what I expected.  To proceed further, I need
to guide you through some remote debugging steps.

make clean
./configure --enable-debug --enable-ansi
cd pcl

echo '(load "sys-package.lisp")' '(setq *features* (delete (quote :kcl) *features*))' '(load "defsys.lisp")(push (quote :kcl) *features*)' '(setq pcl::*default-pathname-extensions* (cons "lisp" "o"))' '(setq pcl::*pathname-extensions* (cons "lisp" "o"))' '(load "sys-proclaim.lisp")' '(setq compiler::*default-h-file* t)' '(setq compiler::*default-c-file* t)' '(setq compiler::*default-data-file* t)' '(setq compiler::*default-system-p* t)' '(setq compiler::*keep-gaz* t compiler::*tmp-dir* "")' '(pcl::compile-pcl)' >foo

gdb ../unixport/saved_gcl.exe
(gdb) b call_init
(gdb) r
> (load "foo")

Then at the first break, please do

(gdb) display/x memory->cfd.cfd_start

and keep a list of which .o file is loaded at which start address.


(gdb) c

to continue, and keep pressing 'c' until the error occurs.  gdb will
break and give you a fault address, please note this.  Then

(gdb) bt

to get a backtrace.

Please then leave this window open, send me the list of addresses, the
fault address, and the backtrace, and I can guide you further from

Thanks again so much!
