process.gdb-remote crashes Part 1

The gdb plugin does indeed get more info, when it works. Here's one of the crashes i get:

Assertion failed: (Invalid memory access in the target), function get64, file /Users/aep/lldb/source/Plugins/Process/Utility/libunwind/src/RemoteProcInfo.hpp, line 531.

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

where updateThreads is:

SBThread thr = process->GetThreadAtIndex(0);
thr.GetNumFrames();

process is currently stopped ( Stop() was called, then a ProcessEvent has been fired through the EventListener and GetState() returns eStateStopped )

The libunwind code isn't really set up to handle invalid stacks, since that's not it's main job. If you're getting these asserts on normal healthy stacks it would be mildly interesting to follow up on why, but really we haven't dealt with this further because we are in the process of replacing the libunwind unwinder with one native to lldb that we can customize more to our liking. That shouldn't be too long showing up now.

Jim

There are asserts in the libunwind code, which, as Jim stated, is going to be obsolete very soon. It looks like you are triggering one of these assertions for some reason. If you can attach any code for what you were doing with steps to reproduce, please do.
