I was trying to use gdb to debug a program (audio/timidity++) on
It would play fine, and then I'll interrupt it with Ctrl-C to enter the
debugger. If I then try to exit the debugger, the whole system will
I sync-ed to today's sources (BETA5) and added WITNESS, WITNESS_KDB,
INVARIANTS, and INVARIANT_SUPPORT (strangly, INVARIANTS requires, but
does not imply INVARIANT_SUPPORT).
With BETA5 the story is exactly the same -- instant reboot.
Sometimes I can see two lines of debug messages (lock order reversal?)
flushed on the console, but the machine reboots too quickly to read
Is this gdb misbehaviour a known problem? How can I have the system
avoid rebooting? Crash-dumping is enabled, but does not take place :-(
Is that because timidity uses threads, perhaps?
