While compiling wip/jdk14 I came across this write error:

It is repeatable. Matt was debugging it, but if there are people with more
time out there it would be even better.

I did have a ktrace.out available (which I have to find and upload it to leaf)
and Matt did download it:

The program outputted "DESC FLAGS 0002" which according to Matt should
output ... but why then during the build the descriptors were set to

I also bugged Joerg on IRC about the write error and he (if I understood him
correctly) suggested that another library that uses select(2) calls could
have set them to non-blocking.

Now ... how to figure out which one? If I ktraced an app that I linked with
another library, if that library does set the descriptors to non-blocking,
can I see that in ktrace and how? And the most important question ... do I
have to use all the functions the library provides or do I just manually link
the app to the library, ktrace the newly linked app and I can see if that
library is at fault or not? If it's as easy as that I can just try randomly
linking libraries and ktrace the app (a "Hello world" app) :)

Is this still present?

If yes, can you provide the full ktrace so that we can find out which part is
setting O_NONBLOCK?

#2 Updated by rumcic over 12 years ago

The ktrace file is at leaf:~rumko/ktrace.out

#3 Updated by corecode over 12 years ago

i believe we didn't see any write errors for a long time. closing for now.
