Description Oren Hurvitz 2014-11-23 02:04:33 UTC
Mono often crashes on newer Linux kernels.

Mono versions where this bug was tested and happens: 3.4, 3.8, 3.10

Linux kernels where Mono crashes: 3.14, 3.16

Linux kernels where Mono *doesn't* crash: 3.10, 3.11

Here's an example of one of the crashes: http://pastebin.com/Rcxy6WrS
(It was sent by a different user than me)

I've verified that the kernel is the problem by changing the kernel version back and forth on the same machine.

I made a number of tests with Mono 3.2.8 and 4.0.1 and can confirm the issue on 64-bit 3.13 and 3.16 kernels of Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-52-generic x86_64), Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.16.0-37-generic x86_64) and Debian 8 (3.16.0-4-amd64). So far, I could not reproduce a problem with 32-bit systems.
Comment 3 Zadark 2016-05-07 17:01:22 UTC
A patch for Opensim has been provided http://opensimulator.org/mantis/view.php?id=7900 (Crash due to setting Thread.name after thread start.) The patch has been successfully demonstrated on a number of system configuration. The crash condition returns when the patch is reverted. Conclude this issue is resolved.
